Tenneco Inc. is aggressively hiring for its Kettering plant.
The auto parts producer is planning a career fair from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. July 20 at the 2555 Woodman Drive factory.
The company’s goal: A plant with nearly 800 employees.
The global manufacturer seeks to fill entry-level manufacturing operator positions as well as skilled-trades jobs including: tool-makers, CNC (computer numeric control machine ) operators, paint machine operators, electricians and more.
Tonya Dyer, Tenneco-Kettering human resources manager, said the plant has about 525 workers now. Its goal is to have 780 workers.
Starting pay will range from $14.66 an hour to $29.42 for skilled-trades jobs, and benefits coverage begins on the first day of employment, Dyer said. Hourly workers will be represented by the IUE-CWA.
Before attending the jobs fair, the company asks applicants to register at jobs.tenneco.com.
The plant at 2555 Woodman used to be a Delphi plant. Early in the Great Recession, the future looked uncertain at best for the facility.
But there were signs of life.
