Despite the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, Toyota Motor Manufacturing Missouri (TMMMO) is actively hiring for production positions. 

The plant makes cylinder heads for Toyota vehicles built in North America, like the Camry and the Tundra.

“Toyota is looking for people who like to work in a team and solve problems. We can train you how to use the technology at the plant and have a great career in manufacturing,” said Wes Woods, president of TMMMO. “The health and safety of our employees remains a top priority, and we look forward to welcoming new team members to our plant.”

Toyota suspended operations for seven weeks this spring, allowing the company to implement new protocols to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19. The manufacturing operations are following federal health and safety guidelines, and local and state ordinances. 

In order to ensure employees are safe and healthy, Toyota COVID-19 safety protocols include:

— Completion of a required Return to Work Preparedness Survey prior to coming onsite

— Entry to work protocols, including temperatures checks, at entrance

— Staggered start/stop times to aid with temperature checks and social distancing guidelines

— Social distancing protocols in work areas and common areas

— Added sanitizing protocols

— PPE requirements includes face coverings

Starting wages are $18 an hour for production employees with a premium for second and third shifts. All positions include health insurance and paid time off. 

New production employees would be employed by Kelly Services, Toyota’s staffing agency. 

Interested production candidates can call (636) 542-8345, email or visit the Kelly Services website for more information.
