The actual recruitment drive began in early January and 200 employees have been hired so far, with 100 to 150 employees to be added each month until all jobs are filled.

"We prefer our internal personnel for qualified and more demanding jobs," Schweizer stated, as quoted by TASR, adding that most new applicants are from the vicinity of Trnava and Nitra.
