WICHITA, Kansas – There are several resources to help the 575 workers laid off at Cessna and Beechcraft.
The United Way of the Plains does not have plans at this time to open a Laid-Off Workers Center, but we will continue to monitor the situation.
In the past, the United Way has opened a center when local layoffs reach a large enough number that the available social services become extremely overloaded.
As far as local services available, here are a few:
United Methodist Open Door Food Pantry – 267-4201
Catholic Charities Food Pantry – 262-8898
Wichita Workforce Center – 771-6800
As far as information on other jobs, here are a few KSN has collected.
HRePartners – Kansas HRePartners is an association of employers pooling their resources to provide convenient access to information and excellent service to our customers.
Spirit Aerosystems – Spirit is looking to fill approximately 250 positions in Wichita. The open positions include opportunities primarily for engineers and mechanics.
McPherson County Career Fair – The fair will be held Thursday, April 24, 2014 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Best Western Holiday Manor.
