TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (WBRC) - Mercedes-Benz U.S. International (MBUSI) announced that it is hiring several hundred full-time production team members by the end of 2021.

Team members hired as part of this program will be immediately eligible for all MBUSI benefit programs and a starting hourly pay rate of $20, rising to $25-plus an hour after regular wage increases over four years, plus a shift premium.

“So the individuals who would be applying to those jobs are going to wear that star on their shirt, full-time employees. The other thing with this announcement, Mercedes is raising entry-level pay to $20 an hour. So, it is a milestone for the auto making industry in this region,” said Donny Jones, President of West Alabama Works.

MBUSI leaders said the hires will allow MBUSI’s Alabama manufacturing operation to not only meet growing demand for its vehicles, but also aligns with the automaker’s strategic growth plans for its Alabama operation, which will begin producing two electric vehicles – the EQS SUV and EQE SUV – in 2022.
