FCA Still Looking For Workers From Detroit Area For New Plant:

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is extending their application window for the more than 11,000 pre-qualified Detroiters who want to work at the company’s new assembly plant being built on the city’s eastside. The deadline for applications is now September 29th. The extension applies to Detroiters who have already completed the Detroit at Work Job Readiness activities held at over 300 events around the city since June.

“We decided to extend the application window to make sure that all Detroit residents who are already on the list have an additional opportunity to complete the application process,” said Mike Lackaye, Head of Hourly Staffing, FCA. “Our intent has always been to make sure that Detroit residents are considered first, and we feel that this extension is important in achieving that objective.”

FCA announced in February that it would invest $2.5 billion to convert the former Mack Avenue Engine Complex into a new assembly plant and retool the Jefferson North Assembly Plant, bringing nearly 5,000 new jobs to the city to support production of the next-generation Jeep® Grand Cherokee, as well as an all-new three-row full-size Jeep SUV and plug-in hybrid (PHEV) models. When the new facility opens in late 2020, it will be the first new assembly plant in Detroit in nearly 30 years.

Applicants experiencing any technical difficulties should call Detroit at Work at 313-962-WORK for assistance.
