“GT Advanced, Apple’s manufacturing partner for its new sapphire glass plant in Mesa, Arizona, has sent a postcard to local residents advertising for open positions at its new facility,” Jordan Golson reports for MacRumors. “A MacRumors reader who lives in Mesa sent us the postcard he received. The new facility is reported to have some 700 employees between both Apple and GT.”

“The positions are separate from the job openings that Apple posted last week and they are likely for lower-level jobs than the more supervisory Apple roles,” Golson reports. “Jobs mentioned include Manufacturing Operators and Technicians, Process Engineering Manager, Metrology Manager and more.”
