Chrysler Hires 200 Workers to Keep Up With Jeep Wrangler Demand

UntitledAided by the popularity of the Jeep Wrangler, Chrysler needs to hire additional workers to fill in shifts at a plant in Ohio.

Over the past few months, sales for the Wrangler and the Wrangler Unlimited have been on the rise.  In order to meet the recent demand for the always popular Jeep vehicles, Chrysler is adding 200 people to the Jeep plant in Toledo Ohio.  The new hires will be beginning their work on April 1st.

130 of the new workers will be offering extra relief to the current work force on the assembly line.  There are two shifts already working hard, each working 10 hours.  Chrysler is not looking to add a third shift, according to, due to the paint shop of the plant being at capacity.

Thanks in part to the rebounding economy and car buyers staying loyal to a brand they can trust.  The Wrangler has always been a vehicle that people depend upon.  That can be seen by the amount of Wranglers being produced at the Toledo plant.  It’s more than 200,000 from last year.  U.S. sales rose 16 percent from last year.

Chrysler Responds to Resintated Workers

A news story about the dismissal of 13 auto works at a Chrysler plant in Detroit from two years ago has everyone talking again.

Many will remember the story from back in 2010 of a video showing off duty assembly line workers drinking and smoking pot while on their breaks.  Chrysler responded with outrage at the incident, firing the said 13 workers.  That’s where the story should’ve ended, but this week the workers are back in the plant at their previous jobs.  Chrysler is not happy about it either.

The United Auto Workers (UAW) filed grievances for the workers that were terminated due to the video.  A third-party arbitrator ruled on the side of the union and had their jobs reinstated.  Chrysler has released a statement saying that they do not agree with the decision that was made with the arbitrator but will respect that procedure was followed.

Chrysler Group One of the Top Workplaces in Michigan

The Detroit Free Press has announced that the list for their fifth annual “Top Workplaces in the State of Michigan” is out and Chrysler has made the cut.

The way the process works in being included on the list began in June 2012 when about 300 employees nominated the company via a survey.  Chrysler was ranked number 21 in the large employer category, which is where companies have 500 workers or more.  That’s out of the 237 companies that reside in Michigan that were also surveyed.

Not only that, but the CEO of Chrysler, Sergio Marchionne also got a special mention.  He is on the list of “Top Workplaces Standouts” for Leadership.  That’s for the employers who ranked high in not only meeting but also exceeding the expectations of their employees.

“We are honored and humbled to receive such a meaningful acknowledgement from our employees, validating that Chrysler Group is, indeed, an employer of choice,” said Nancy A. Rae, the Senior VP, Human Resources, at Chrysler Group.  “”Chrysler Group is committed to providing and sustaining a workplace environment where employees can thrive and achieve world class levels of performance, innovation, and success.”

To someone who has been following the business of Chrysler of late, it doesn’t come as a surprise that they are popular with employees.  They have been returning jobs to the plants as demand for their products increase and have earned numerous awards for their progressive practices including recognition from the HRC and Diversity Inc.
