Career fair at Volkswagen Chattanooga

Volkswagen Chattanooga will host a job fair July 7-9 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. for its open positions on the production team. The job fair will be held at the Volkswagen Academy, 7469 Volkswagen Drive. Due to construction activities on Volkswagen Drive that week, visitors are encouraged to access the plant via Bonny Oaks Drive.

Information sessions will take place during the job fair, where interested participants can learn more about the position, salary and schedule. Candidates who attend an information session at the job fair will be able to schedule an interview at a later date.

In addition to seeing our training activities first-hand, attendees will have the opportunity to learn about electric mobility and electric vehicle manufacturing.

The starting hourly rate for these shifts can reach $24.40 including the shift premium and the quarterly premium based solely on attendance.
