Toledo plants hiring again

by David Zatz on

Jeep Toledo plant

Tyrel Linkhorn of the Toledo Blade reported that Chrysler will hire around a thousand part-timers at its Jeep Wrangler and Cherokee assembly plants, to give breaks to full time employees. Overtime has been pervasive at the plant, with employees routinely working 60 hour weeks. Adding part-timers can prevent fatigue from causing accidents and errors.

Chrysler already hired 380 temporary part-timers this year, according to the article; fifty of them have become full-time employees since then. The hourly rate is set at $15.78 per hour, for ten to thirty hours per week.

Wrangler demand has been growing, even as customers have snapped up Cherokees; and the latter has barely begun to reach international markets, though it is to be sold in 150 countries (with a wide variety of regulations).  See the full article with quotes from the plant manager.
