Bremerton Naval Shipyard hiring for more than 1,000 jobs

BREMERTON — Puget Sound Naval Shipyard says it’s hiring more than 1,000 helper trainees in all trades.

The Kitsap Sun says starting pay is $15.11 an hour.

Shipyard spokeswoman Mary Ann Mascianica says the new helpers will boost the workforce to more than 11,500.

Major projects are under way on the aircraft carrier John C. Stennis, ballistic missile submarine USS Kentucky and fast attack subs USS Jimmy Carter and USS Connecticut.

The newspaper says helpers work full time at the shipyard and can attend classes on their own time to get ahead.
