“Apple’s top Taiwanese suppliers have started mass-hirings, with reports in Taiwan that the companies were recruiting staff in preparation for building the iPhone 7 series,” Haze Fan reports for CNBC. “On the website for Foxconn’s Zhenzhou, China, factory, a job advertisement on the homepage reads, ‘Foxconn Zhengzhou is hiring a large number of ordinary workers. Welcome to join Foxconn: Age between 18-40. Overall monthly salary: 3,800 renmimbi. Start working immediately.'”

“In a longer version of the ad, potential workers are encouraged to ‘hurry to apply,’ and warned that the company’s jobs hotline may be busy because ‘so many applicants are dialing in,'” Fan reports. “Taiwan’s Economic Daily News reported on Tuesday that Foxconn, which is also known as Hon Hai Precision Industry, and Pegatron, another Apple supplier, had ramped up hiring as they prepared to assemble the newest model iPhones.”

“The report noted that hiring at both suppliers had kicked off their recruitment seasons at least a month earlier than in previous years in which Apple has launched new iPhones,” Fan reports, “and that it was the first time in two years that Foxconn had started recruiting on the mainland as early as May.”
