Lear Corporation hopes to hire new employees at a job fair and outreach event hosted by West AlabamaWorks in McCalla on Thursday, July 28.

According to a press release, the automotive supplier for Mercedes-Benz U.S. International is hiring and training personnel at their facilities in Cottondale and Vance before they open a new facility in McCalla.

Having recently received the electrical business for a new electric vehicle debuting in 2023, Lear Corp. aims to meet the new demand with a new workforce.

The event is happening from 3 to 7 p.m. at the Holiday Inn Express off Exit 1 in McCalla.

Positions for seat assemblers, material handlers and maintenance technicians are available, and hourly salaries range from $17 to $27.

Those interested are encouraged to dress for success and be ready to interview. Offers could be made on-site for qualified candidates.
