Boeing to move 1,000 jobs to Southern California

Boeing, the Chicago-based aerospace company, announced the customer support department for it's Boeing Commercial Engineering Design Center will all be moved to southern California.

Boeing is centralizing the center's customer service department at its southern California location. Currently, this facility provides support for airplane models: 707, 717, 727, 757, DC-8, DC-9, DC-10, MD-11 and MD-80/-90. Other models such as the Next-Generation 737, 747, 767 and 777 have been supported from Boeing's Washington facility and will move to southern California.

Boeing created engineering design centers in southern California, South Carolina and Washington in 2013. The Southern California Engineering Design Center employs approximately 1,800 people in Long Beach and Seal Beach, Calif. The new customer service arrangement is projected to create about 1,000 positions in California over the next two years.

Many employees currently working at the Washington location will be offered positions at the southern California branch or will have the opportunity to apply.

Companies like Boeing need to recruit employees for a variety of positions, from manufacturing to engineering and from customer service to sales and marketing. Businesses should work with recruiters, such as experienced engineering recruiters, to find the most qualified candidates for their open positions.
