Mazda Toyota Manufacturing set to hire production team

0

MTMUS receives support from AIDTAlabama’s premier workforce development agency, in what is sure to become one of the biggest ongoing hiring events in state history.

Members of the production team make up the largest percentage of MTMUS’ workforce, which is expected to grow to 4,000 once full production is reached at the 3.7 million square foot facility.

Members of the production team will be responsible for the hands-on assembly of up to 300,000 Mazda and Toyota vehicles per year.

While the first phase of hiring MTMUS production crew members opens Monday, hiring will continue on a rolling basis through 2022, according to the AIDT.

FOUR-STEP PROCESS

Starting Monday, applicants can begin the process online at www.mazdatoyota.com, where they’ll provide basic contact information, work history, and answer a few questions. Candidates who meet the hiring criteria are then invited to take an online assessment, which includes a written part.

Candidates who progress beyond the online assessment will be invited to a “Job Assessment Day”, which will place the candidate in a simulated factory environment to assess their skills at various tasks. This will ensure that qualified candidates are matched with positions suited to their skills and abilities.

Job offers are dependent on a successful background check, drug screen, and physical exam.

AIDT said the high volume of applicants expected means the time from assessment to job offer could take up to three months.

Positions, duties and details outlining the application process for team members can all be found on the Mazda Toyota website.

AIDT, part of the Alabama Department of Commerce, provides a range of workforce development assistance to MTMUS, including training at the agency’s Alabama Robotics Technology Park near Decatur.

This week, MTMUS joined AIDT to launch the RTP 2.0 initiative prepare the training site for technological advances in robotics and automation technologies.

MTMUS announced its plans for the Alabama assembly plant in January 2018. Construction of the facility is well underway on a 2,500 acre site in the Limestone County portion of Huntsville.

Production of the first vehicles at MTMUS will begin next year.
