Mercury Marine is looking to hire 150 workers during the next two months at its facilities in Fond du Lac, Wis.

The company is hosting a job fair July 21 in Fond du Lac, according to the Fond du Lac Reporter newspaper.

Those interested in attending must apply for positions listed on the Supplemental Technician job posting on Mercury's careers website. Applicants also must copy the form and bring it with them to the job fair for an interview.

Starting pay for the positions is $10 an hour, which increases to $10.50 after 90 days. Company officials said entry-level employees have the opportunity to transition to positions that are fully represented by the union.

Mercury Marine has hired nearly 300 new employees in 2011 and employs about 2,300 people in Fond du Lac.
