Mazda Toyota and Team ONE hosting job fair – hundreds of jobs available

HUNTSVILLE — According to career experts Zippia, almost 1 million Americans work in automotive and parts manufacturing and there are several solid reasons why.

First, the career outlook is promising, particularly for automotive service technicians and mechanics. The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts 6% growth from 2016 to 2026.

There are versatile career opportunities in the automotive industry, especially in technical and mechanical positions.

Automotive is a high-tech industry of the future.

Industry jobs are easily attained because of programs that offer hands-on training. People can begin their careers as soon as they graduate.

And fifth, and most importantly, automotive manufacturing industries salaries are very competitive.

Mazda Toyota Manufacturing recently increased its starting hourly wages to $19 an hour and top rates to $25.65 an hour for production team members. For skilled team members, starting wages rose to $26.29 an hour, and top wages rose to $36.65 an hour.
