Kelly Services is partnering with the RI Dept. of Labor and Training (DLT) to recruit more than 150 long-term temporary positions for the gaming technology company GTECH. A recruitment event for electronic assemblers, shippers and quality control & test technicians is scheduled from 2 to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, May 6, at the GTECH manufacturing facility at 1372 Main St. (Rte. 117), Coventry. Positions are long-term, with employment anticipated through at least December.

Kelly Service District Manager Linda Knight explains that the available positions are full-time and include first- and second-shift schedules. She adds that applicants should have prior manufacturing experience, and advises them to bring a résumé to the recruitment.
