Now Hiring: 10,000 Luxury Auto Jobs Open Up at Daimler
The good news is that one auto manufacturer is doing so well it's looking to hire 10,000 new employees in the next year. The not-so-good news is that you might need to speak German if you'd like to apply for some of the positions.
Daimler, the German company behind Mercedes-Benz, has just announced that of the 10,000 additional positions opening, 4,000 of them will be in Germany. Still, that leaves about 6,000 new jobs scattered throughout the rest of the world.
In the United States, 1,300 new employees will be recruited for the plants of Daimler Trucks North America. Daimler's U.S. corporate headquarters is in Portland, Ore., with a manufacturing plant there as well. The company also has plants in North Carolina and South Carolina. There are parts distribution centers in Georgia, Nevada, New Jersey, Ohio, Illinois and Tennessee. The company's Business Unit Headquarters are in North Carolina, South Carolina and Michigan. Find out specifics of positions as they open at the Daimler Trucks North America career page.
Many of the other non-German jobs will involve staffing the new or recently expanded plants in Hungary, India, and Mexico.
Daimler is looking to hire approximately 6,700 skilled workers and 700 graduates. They'll also be taking on approximately 1,900 apprentices, and offering positions for 600 trainees in its CAReer trainee program. Finally, a place to put to use all that German you studied in high school!
"Our human resources policy stands on two pillars: the continuous encouragement and support of young talent along with the recruitment of highly qualified skilled workers and graduates with work experience," stated Wilfried Porth, Daimler's Board of Management Member for Human Resources and Labor Relations Director.
The Daimler Group work force is nothing to sneeze at. By the end of 2010, the auto manufacturer employed 260,100 people worldwide, up 3,700 from 2010. More information on the locations and jobs available can be found on Daimler's website.
