John Deere Reman is expected to add around 130 new positions in Springfield this year, and is hosting a hiring event this Saturday, May 8th.
The event is from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Reman location in the 4500 block of East Mustard Way in Springfield.
Prospective employees can view a virtual factory tour, learn about available jobs and the compensation and benefits package, as well as complete an electronic application and pre-employment testing onsite. COVID-19 protocols will be in place.
The company says Reman supervisors and Human Resources reps will be on hand to discuss available positions, such as electronics technicians, assemblers, disassemblers, warehouse workers, maintenance workers and parts cleaners.
Previous experience is not required for most positions, but Deere Reman is especially interested in applicants who have prior electronics, powertrain, drivetrain, hydraulics, mechanic or maintenance experience in a manufacturing setting.
Starting hourly pay ranges from $14.34 to $17.70 with new hires receiving an hourly wage increase after six months.
