PODS plans to hire more than 300 associates in the first two years of operation. Job seekers can apply directly to http://careers.PODS.com.
The company invented the concept of portable storage containers in 1998 and is headquartered in Clearwater, Fla.
Currently PODS serves 46 states, Canada and Australia and has made more than 3 million deliveries.
Business partners who assisted PODS with their decision to relocate to Reno include the Site Selection Group from Dallas; David Woods and Matt Grimes of CBRE; Nevada Job Connect; and the Governor’s Office of Economic Development; and Tyler Sheldon, ProEquity Asset Management.
“The story seems to be unfolding day by day, and the longer it goes on, the harder the struggle is for both national and local retailers … It’s really tough to tell who is going to survive and who isn’t,” says Jim Kaplan, who owns the Crossing at Meadowood Square in Reno.
