HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WAFF) – Mazda Toyota Manufacturing is seeking to fill more places on its production line and is taking part in a major online job fair from 1 p.m. on Thursday.

This is Mazda Toyota’s third job fair of the year and there are still over 1,000 jobs for production team members up for grabs! The company plans to hire a total of 4,000 new employees. The goal is to build a team from the ground up with a view to starting production at its new factory in Huntsville later this year.

“We’re really excited to be able to participate in the Virtual Automotive Manufacturing Hiring Event,” said Toni Eberhart of Mazda Toyota Manufacturing’s corporate communications team. “It’s really an opportunity for interested candidates to ask questions!

The Huntsville Madison County Chamber of Commerce hosts the job fair. It is free for employers and job seekers.

Mazda Toyota hired in phases to ensure the onboarding process ran smoothly. So far, the company has hired about 1,400 employees in several different departments.

“These events have been so wonderful for our company to connect with job seekers who want to join Mazda Toyota Manufacturing and really learn more about the growing industry. There will also be other employers there” , Eberhart said.

At Mazda Toyota, pay starts at $17 an hour and employees are signed up for a benefits package from day one. You must be 18 or older at the time of application and have an interest in working on the production line.

“The kind of practical work is the nature of work!” said Eberhart.

The main purpose of the job fair is to give job seekers the opportunity to ask questions, learn about the company and find out how to apply for a place on the team.

“Overall, we’ve seen a really positive response,” Eberhart said. “The team members we’ve hired on board are so excited to be here and we’re so excited to have them. We’re really building a world-class team, so we’re always on the lookout for more people wanting to join us and find the best qualified candidates, but we are so excited to be able to connect with members of the community and welcome them to our team.

Some of Mazda’s suppliers are also hiring and will be present at the job fair. According to Eberhart, 17 companies make up the Mazda Toyota Manufacturing ecosystem, which operate to support the plant. The total number of jobs offered, including factory suppliers, is approximately 7,000.

Again, the event will begin at 1 p.m. and run until 2:30 p.m. CST. Eberhart recommends that job seekers register in advance, but it is not required. You can register for the job fair using this link:
