Two Clark County companies will host job fairs this weekend to fill positions in the manufacturing and insurance industries.

Assurant — one of Springfield’s largest employers — will host a job fair from 8 to 11 a.m. Saturday and from 5 to 8 p.m. Monday to fill roughly 100 customer care and account processing positions. It will take place at Assurant’s office complex at 1 Assurant Way in Springfield.

Assurant employs about 1,750 workers at its facility in Springfield, said Robert Byrd, a spokesman for the company. Assurant also has an office in Dayton with about 50 workers, but employees at that facility are in the process of moving to the Springfield office.

The new hiring is needed to meet increased demand from clients, Byrd said.

Both full- and part-time positions will be available at the job fair. A high school diploma or GED, as well as one year of related work experience is required.

Company officials declined to discuss pay, but said salaries will be based on experience and the position requirements. Residents who are interested in jobs with the company can apply online at

Benjamin Steel Co. will also host a job fair from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at its Springfield headquarters, 777 Benjamin Drive, in the Prime Ohio Office Park. The company has openings for material handlers, processors, laser operators, supervisors and other positions.

Applicants who meet the job qualifications will be interviewed on site and may be offered a job immediately following the interview, according to company officials. The initial job offer is conditional, and will be final once the applicant passes a pre-hire drug screen, required before employment can begin.

Benjamin Steel offers a full benefits package with paid vacation, a 401(k) plan, a bonus program, and more, which adds about 35 percent to the total compensation, the company said.
