    Like cars? Looking for an immersive experience in the business? Tired of flipping pizzas? These are all good reasons to carrier-pigeon your résumé to the superlative luxury-car maker Rolls-Royce, because the company is hiring apprentices.

    The company announced on Monday that it is launching recruitment for another batch of young workers, continuing a program it began in 2006. More than 30 apprentices have been hired by Rolls-Royce.

    So what does it entail? The program is for people ages 16 to 24, and the apprenticeships can last for up to four years. It involves on-the-job training, and apprentices get to perform tasks involving the engineering and business sides of the industry. Specific jobs include working with leather, paint, wood and other parts.

    This would be an interesting time to join Rolls-Royce, as the company is hard at work on an electric Phantom and boosting its sales.

    To apply, visit BMW Group.

    Many, many years ago RR layed off a young worker who had a mohawk haircut with 6" spikes in his hair. Said it was a 'safety' concern. So if you're applying and make it as far asan interview. Be sure to ditch the mohawk ;)

    Hey, the "16 to 24" part sounds like a clear case of "age discrimination" to me. I have two words for them, "Class Action". CHKMINI, Crashton, Lotise, MM, you want in on this? :Thumbsup: :lol:

    Your proposed class action is discriminating against those of us fortysomethings. I am suing you.

    I found the article from the fired RR employee from many years ago. You be the judge, is his hair dangerous? :lol:
