The event is being held at the Inn on Woodlake, 705 Woodlake Road, Kohler. Attendees will interview with human resources and business representatives for full- and part-time positions.

The company has 41 openings in manufacturing, including for assembly, machine operators and warehouse work; and skilled trades including electricians, industrial electricians, electro mechanics, and utility repair technicians.

Kohler’s hospitality group  has 108 openings for cooks, server, dishwashers, retail, housekeeping and sales associates.

Kohler executives said in January the company had nearly 400 openings and expected to fill 500 positions during the year between job growth and turnover. A spokesperson said the company has had “great success” in attracting new employees over the last several months.

Editor’s Note: This story has been updated to more accurately reflect the number of openings Kohler is hiring for. Because of incorrect information provided to BizTimes, an earlier version indicated there were 400 openings.
