Located in Venice, PGT employs approximately 1,900 individuals, making the company the largest employer in Sarasota County. On Saturday, November 5, from 9 a.m. to noon, Goodwill and CareerSource present the first of the hiring events, which will be held at the Cultural Center of Charlotte County (2280 Aaron St., Port Charlotte). PGT is seeking manufacturing assembly workers, loading techs, maintenance mechanics, production group leaders, HR generalists, and more. Job seekers are encouraged to complete an online application at, to register and add their resume to, and to bring their resume to the job fair because pre-screen interviews will be conducted on-site. Job seekers are also encouraged to visit Goodwill’s North Port Job Connection office (14879 Tamiami Trl ) prior to the hiring event for assistance with resume development and interview skills. Future events are planned for the first quarter of 2017 at PGT Industries in Venice, second quarter 2017 in North Port, and then again in Port Charlotte in the third quarter of 2017.
