Spirit AeroSystems won’t have a job fair on Saturday.

That’s according to a Spirit spokesman Jarrod Bartlett, who said on Friday company officials are concerned people will show up at the plant on Saturday for a job fair that was never planned.

The confusion about a job fair started last weekend when a 2015 Eagle story about the company ramping up hiring plans and holding a job fair spread across Facebook.

But Bartlett encouraged people interested in working at Spirit to look at job openings on its website, spiritaero.com/careers.
