ALDI will hold a job fair for manager trainees on Aug. 26 in Salisbury. ALDI is looking to fill 50 positions for manager trainees in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia.

Unlike an ALDI job fair in June, which was an open call for distribution center employees, this job fair is by invitation.  In order to be invited, interested individuals must complete an online survey at . Those meeting the qualifications for management trainee will receive an electronic invitation to attend the job fair. Walk-ins will be seen as time allows.

ALDI is looking for candidates with previous management experience. Management trainees will participate in a six-month training program, then fill positions throughout the three-state region. Manager trainees earn $21.60 an hour, are eligible for full health insurance benefits and dental coverage, and all employees are invited to participate in the 401(k) program. In addition to other qualifications, a high school diploma or GED is required, along with the ability to work anytime between 6 a.m. and 11 p.m., Monday–Sunday (other than for religious exemptions). Those who successfully complete the training program must be willing to relocate.

ALDI is partnering with RowanWORKS, Economic Development for the job fair.

“ALDI is a valued employer here and we are pleased to support their growth,” said Robert Van Geons, executive director of RowanWORKS. “Rowan County has generously donated the space for this job fair. We appreciate their support of job creation in our community. ”

Mohs surgeon joins Salisbury dermatology practice

Dermatology Group of the Carolinas announced the addition of Dr. Elliot Love, a Mohs micrographic surgeon, to its new Salisbury location. “We are excited to provide the most effective and advanced skin cancer surgery to Salisbury and the Rowan County region with the addition of Dr. Love. He has excellent experience and credentials with a terrific bedside manner,” said Dr. William “Chip” Hoover.

Mohs micrographic surgery has the highest cure rate of all skin cancer treatments – up to 99 percent. During Mohs surgery, layers of cancer-containing skin are removed and microscopically examined until only cancer-free tissue remains. This specialized technique is especially effective for areas such as the face, neck and hands where retaining the maximum amount of healthy tissue is important for functional or cosmetic purposes.

Love joins Dr. Jon Ter Poorten who has been the practice’s only Mohs surgeon since 2000. “Having a second Mohs surgeon in our practice allows us to schedule patients for surgery faster once they are diagnosed by another physician,” said Poorten. “The faster the cancer is gone, the faster patients can begin healing.” Both dermatologists are board-certified and are fellows of the American College of Mohs Micrographic Surgery and Cutaneous Oncology.

After completing his dermatology residency at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, Love completed his Mohs Dermatologic Surgery and Cutaneous Oncology Fellowship at the Cleveland Clinic. He was the director of Cutaneous Surgery and Oncology at MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland, Ohio, where he also served as the assistant professor of dermatology at Case Western Reserve School of Medicine since 2010.

“I look forward to working with Dr. Philip Eaton and the other dermatologists in our Salisbury office to help as many patients as we can,” Love said. He will be performing Mohs surgery three and a half days a week and seeing patients for skin checks and cosmetic services the other one and a half days.
