Arrow Electronics Corp.'s new hires are already headed to its planned new headquarters Englewood, Colo., at five times the rate of jobs planned for Melville, according to its October job listings on the corporate website Monday.

October listings for the Melville-based electronics supply company numbered 3 in Melville and 17 in Englewood.

The jobs don’t list salary ranges, but specify preferred levels of training and experience, and the Englewood jobs are, on the whole, more exacting in terms of background.

The Englewood jobs mostly require advanced degrees, certified public accountant status, or lengthy experience. Several are for high-level management. One is for director of e-commerce supply chain and inventory. Another is for a product manager, and a third for manager of marketing on Arrow's NetApp line of business.

The three Melville jobs listed in October were for a field sales rep, a trade compliance manager and an Oracle applications engineer.

Arrow spokesman John Hourigan, when asked about the hiring pattern, said that, “At any given time, Arrow’s global job listings are based on many factors, including customer and supplier needs and needs of the business itself, not just location.”

Arrow's October job listings show it's hiring in other states at a higher rate than it is for Melville. It’s hiring eight in California, and five in Ohio, mostly in sales. In Texas, Arrow is looking to hire nine new employees, mostly programmers, engineers and IT management.

Arrow on Oct. 11 said it will transfer its headquarters to Colorado and will hire 1,250 more workers there in the next five years.

Its most recent quarterly report showed it made $132.2 million on $5.2 billion in sales, the sixth quarter in a row that Arrow has set a record for earnings

Arrow employs 550 in Melville, a number the company says won't change with the headquarters shift. It has 12,700 workers worldwide.
