Mercedes adding hundreds of production team members by year’s end

Mercedes-Benz U.S. International (MBUSI) plans to launch an accelerated campaign to hire several hundred permanent production team members before the end of 2021 to allow its Alabama manufacturing operation to meet growing demand for its vehicles and prepare for new milestones.

MBUSI’s hiring wave aligns with the automaker’s strategic growth plans for its Alabama operation, which will begin producing two electric vehicles — the EQS and EQE sport utilities — in 2022. MBUSI is also opening an EV battery pack assembly facility on a second Alabama campus in Bibb County.

The goal of MBUSI’s campaign is to attract candidates for permanent production team jobs by year’s end. MBUSI is seeking to reach workers with production experience, especially those in the auto industry, and less-experienced workers who have completed manufacturing training programs.

Team members hired as part of the program will be immediately eligible for all MBUSI benefit programs and a starting hourly pay rate of $20, rising to $25+ an hour after regular wage increases over four years, plus a shift premium.
