United Airlines will host a two-day career fair in Guam from Jan. 17 to 18 at the Hyatt Recency Guam from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day for open roles at its U.S. hub in Denver, Colorado. Application may also be filed online.
“This is an ideal time to join United,” said Sam Shinohara, United's managing director of airport operations for Asia-Pacific.
“We are excited to offer career opportunities to Guam residents that not only come with outstanding benefits, competitive pay, and flight privileges to travel the world but are based at one of our fastest-growing hubs with the opportunity for long-term careers and job advancement," he added.
Last month, United announced the largest widebody aircraft order by a U.S. carrier in commercial aviation history – up to 200 Boeing 787 Dreamliners – bolstering the airline's leadership role in global travel for years to come. The order is expected to generate an increase in hiring across every role at the airline.
In 2022, United hired 15,000 new employees and is on track to add another 15,000 this year in the U.S.
Denver is one of United’s seven hubs in the mainland U.S. and home to nearly 9,000 employees. United is the largest private employer in the city of Denver and in 2022, increased the starting wage for ramp agent employees to nearly $20 an hour.
United looks to hire 10,000 new pilots by 2030, in addition to the 12,000 it already employs.
