Longtime Yorkville Business Advertises Job Openings to Immigrant Population

Meyda Tiffany Lighting’s digital “Help Wanted” and “Now Hiring” signs in front of its business rotate between languages spoken in the Utica area.

Meyda Tiffany Lighting, a lighting store that opened in 1981, was originally located two doors down from The Center, where it often recruited employees. Some are still with Meyda today.

“Immigrants have been critical to our company since we started. The culture and diversity of our team is part of what makes us unique,” explains Max Cohen, director of hospitality marketing. “Currently, we are hiring metal fabricators, assemblers, and personnel in our wiring department, and we are looking for talented people of different cultural backgrounds.” 

“At Meyda, we are proud to maintain an inclusive workplace that champions diversity,” he continued. “We provide a professional and healthy work environment where cultural diversity helps us create new manufacturing processes and product designs that are inspired by a myriad of lifestyles and perspectives.”
