DENSO Makes Hiring Eligibility Changes to Help Build Careers

DENSO Hiring Changes to Help Build Careers

Hiring eligibility changes, along with increased wages, are intended to create more career opportunities.

Denso announced it has updated hiring criteria and increased wages at its thermal manufacturing facility in Battle Creek, Michigan. Interested candidates can attend a career fair on June 15, 1-5 p.m. ET, at 1 DENSO Road in Battle Creek to learn how DENSO is creating more opportunities for more people. They also can apply online for positions today at the DENSO careers page.

Denos says the new hiring changes in Battle Creek include:

  • High school diplomas or GEDs are no longer required for production roles. DENSO will continue to offer GED preparation training.
  • Increased pay and placement for candidates with 4 years of experience. Experienced manufacturing candidates who have worked the last four years in manufacturing for no more than two employers are eligible to be hired at the Associate III level.
  • High school to technical career program. Recent graduates can now apply to Associate I positions, or if they pass DENSO’s mechanical assessment, to Lead Associate positions. This change creates new manufacturing career paths for young professionals.
  • Career growth opportunities for bilingual skills. Bilingual candidates with Burmese, Spanish and French speaking skills are encouraged to apply for Lead Associate, Subleader and Team Leader positions.
  • Pay increases, effective since April, for the following roles:

o    Production Employees: up to $25.75 per hour
o    Advanced Machine Operators: up to $25.75 per hour
o    Machine Maintenance Employees: up to $40.12 per hour

“We made these updates with a clear goal in mind: to create more opportunities for more people in Battle Creek to start and build their manufacturing careers,” said April O’Neal, a director of North America Human Resources at DENSO and based in Battle Creek. “We want people to know that if they have work ethic and a desire to learn, we’ll provide resources and support that will help them grow their skills and advance.”

In addition to these changes, employees receive competitive benefits, including medical, dental, and vision care, and a matching 401(k) program, Denso says. They also get top-notch training in safe and clean environments and have access to onsite amenities like technical training and health centers, a pharmacy, credit union, cafeteria and more. New hires will not just find jobs – they will have the opportunity to build careers, the company adds.

Additional walk-in career fairs will be held every Tuesday from 9-11 a.m. and 2-4 p.m. ET.
