Mercedes-Benz Worth Plant Hiring 1,000 New Employees

German auto giant Daimler AG today announced the Mercedes-Benz plant in Wörth’s order books are full and the new Actros is generating an increase in production volume and thus the need for more workforce. An agreement has been reached to run special shifts almost every Saturday in the second half of the year, generating up to 1,000 new jobs.

The facility is seeking staff members for the production and logistics units. The first new employees will be taken on in September, and additional staff members will be added in subsequent months.

The hiring process is scheduled to be completed in the spring of 2012. The positions will be filled by hiring completely new employees and granting permanent employment contracts to current temporary workers.

“The hiring of up to 1,000 new employees marks an important step in our preparations for the production launch of the new Actros,”
said the manager of the Mercedes-Benz plant in Wörth, Yaris Pürsün. “We’ve been working at full speed on the production launch for months now, and it’s a huge challenge for the entire team. I’m proud that every employee here has shown great dedication and made a personal contribution to supporting our quality claim of ‘Trucks you can trust.’”

Back in March, the plant management also decided that positions for an additional 100 trainees will be created over the next four years.

The application phase for the new positions has already started; the job postings for qualified candidates are on the Internet and are being accompanied by ads in daily newspapers. Those interested in obtaining one of the new positions can go to this link and view the postings under the following numbers: 087482: skilled metalworker (m/f); 087483: warehouse manager (m/f); materials provider (m/f); packer (m/f).
