CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) — Volkswagen is holding a job fair aimed at hiring 1,000 production workers for its assembly plant in Tennessee.

The effort to add workers comes as Volkswagen expands the Tennessee facility as the company’s North American hub for electric vehicle manufacturing and battery pack assembly.

The production positions would be primarily for second, third and fourth shifts.

Pay will begin at $24.40 including shift premium and quarterly bonuses and will top out at $33 an hour.

The Volkswagen Chattanooga plant began production in April 2011 and currently employs more than 4,000 people.
