Rolls-Royce 200EX Concept - Click above for a high-res image gallery

The Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost will not only mean more sales for the company, it will mean more workers. Rolls is adding 300 production workers to the payroll, bringing its Sussex workforce to 900. The majority of new positions will be in the wood, leather and paint shops, but there will be assembly positions opening up as well since the Ghost gets its own line. It might not be the best time to bring a top-end luxury sedan to market, but it is a very good time to apply for a job, and Rolls wants to fill them over the next few months. If you have a luxurious way with wood, leather, or paint (or all three), you can peruse the job openings on the Rolls-Royce site, www.rolls-roycemotorcars.com.

      My girlfriend is good with wood, maybe she should apply for a job....No pun intended (Guffaw)

      Yes, because this time it's different....

      Economy has bottomed...plus with all of the money we are printing $250k might not be as much as you think in a few years....but somehow reported inflation will stay under 4%. Beautiful system we have.

      How do they find 300 people who can do wood, leather, and paint at a Rolls-Royce level? I mean, these can't be people who just took a Saturday morning class at Home Depot. They have to be craftsman.

      P.S. AB's posting engine still sucks.

      The Lamborghini/Bugatti/Bentley/Rolls Royce dealer in Beverly Hills is full of inventory. I wonder if they are having a hard time selling those.

      I'm not a Rolls fan. Never moved me. *But* there is something special about an auto company the specifically needs 300 wood & leather craftsmen. I respect the art. I would like to see their factory.

      (I toured a Gibson guitar factory in Memphis once. Really cool to see just how much goes into making a guitar by hand.)

      I actually may buy this car in 6 years. Real talk. RR's values drop quick. in 2015 I could probably scoupe one for less than an S class.

      Wow... word puzzle time. If adding 300 workers brings the total to 900, how many did they start with? My money's on 600. So adding 300 does not, as the title mentions, double their workforce.

      I know its a minor nit (although it is in the headline), but still. C'mon...

        Maybe they meant 50% increase... Or maybe they didn't pass 3rd grade math class.

      Time to get a new calculator.

      I'll tell you where the wood-and-leather guys are coming from: Jaguar, that's where!
      The new cars are really nice but they seem to be getting away from wood and leather interiors in favor of more aluminum. Now the interiors look like everyone else's.

      You just know that a bunch of fools are gonna buy lots of parts and stickers to make their 300C's look like this.


      Its gonna be a mess out on the streets.

      But for Rolls Royce, this is a bottom-end luxury sedan...
