The hiring is expected to be complete by July 31, and could boost the company's workforce to more than 80,000, depending on attrition, company executive Marie Artim said. The suburban St. Louis-based company's revenues have more than doubled over the past 10 years, from US$6.9 billion in 2003 to US$16 billion.
The company plans to hire nearly 8,500 for management trainee positions, including many recent college graduates. Others will be hired for positions in information technology, administration and support roles at the company headquarters in suburban St. Louis, and in branch stores.
In addition to the full-time jobs, Enterprise plans to hire 1,500 interns. Typically, about half of its interns eventually become full-time employees, company officials said.
