Toyota launches application process
Toyota is ready to resume hiring at its Blue Springs plant, which is expected to employ 2,000 workers when fully staffed.
The Toyota Motor Corporation announced plans for the facility in February 2007, but announced in 2008 it would delay plans to start producing vehicles due to the weak economy, according to the Mississippi Development Authority. Toyota still completed the plant and retained its existing workforce at that time.
Now, the company has announced it plans to resume production preparations, with production of the Corolla model starting in fall 2011, according to the MDA.
“We have looked forward with great anticipation to the day when Toyota is ready to fully staff its Blue Springs facility, and that day has come,” Gov. Haley Barbour said in a news release. “I am so pleased that Toyota is moving forward with its hiring process and is creating so many high-quality jobs for the residents of Mississippi.”
Toyota Motor Manufacturing Mississippi Inc. will coordinate all hiring for hourly production and skilled maintenance positions through the Mississippi Department of Employment Security and the Workforce Investment Network Job Centers (with one located in Holly Springs).
People interested in applying for skilled maintenance jobs at the plant should visit the Mississippi Department of Employment Security website and click the “Toyota” link in the “Access Mississippi Online Services” section. Those interested in applying for a salaried position at Toyota should visit the job section of Toyota’s site.
