Hiring for the new roles will begin later this year and continue into 2024, and will include positions in site and operations management, engineers of all sorts, supervisors and production workers. Saint-Gobain offers competitive pay along with a robust benefits package including employer-sponsored health benefits, generous time off, maternity and paternity leave, retirement benefits, pension plans and tuition assistance.
