The 3M company, which is located at Cheshire 4 Link, held a public recruitment for three new employees over the weekend. A long snake-like queue could be seen outside the factory, with some potential employees starting to queue a few hours before the official queue started. Most of them are believed to have come from neighboring Malaysia.
Recruitments were being held for operators, production technical staff, laboratory assistants and technical staff as well as maintenance and system technical staff, of which the number of recruits was not specified. The recruits would have to work 3 days a week, 12 hours a day as part of the shift system.
According to netizens, the roadside was filled up with cars and motorcycles and it was clear that most of the job seekers were Malaysians.
A clear indication of the job situation in Malaysia or Malaysians trying to make use of the exchange rate? Well, with all the competition between the two countries from food to water to land, one more category can be added to the list now!
