By The Star Staff
Aerostar, which manages the facilities at Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport in Carolina, has vacancies that for the most part are in the area of customer service, company CEO Jorge Hernández announced Wednesday.
Both regular staff positions and those contracted through temporary employment agencies are available, he added.
“We invite older adults, 55 years old or older, who want to stay active in the workplace, to consider joining our work teams,” Hernández said. “The only requirements that must be met are to be bilingual and have a desire to work. We will consider retired workers and people with no prior experience. The important thing is that they like to work with the public.”
The Aerostar CEO noted that there are full-time and part-time jobs available, and that compensation will be above the federal minimum wage. He added that airport employees also have access to parking, free of charge.
“We are recruiting personnel of all kinds on an ongoing basis,” Hernández said. “However, we recognize the value and expertise that our seniors can bring to assist our travelers. The airport is the first and last contact that the visitor has with our island. Therefore, we would like to be able to count on this human capital in favor of the experience of our visitors, so that they get the best impression of our people.”
“Working at the airport can be a great starting point for those looking to enter or return to the workforce,” he added. “At the same time, it allows us to contribute to the well being of this population group. Work is a way for older adults to stay active and a way to contribute to society, while receiving income, allowing them to create new routines and socialize with people from different backgrounds.”
