There are multiple Toyota manufacturing plants hiring, including an engine plant and a joint manufacturing plant, both in Huntsville, Alabama.

Where Toyota is hiring

To get the job, you have to relocate to the plant location.

"We have historic unemployment, and [Indiana] is a large manufacturing state," Marshall said.

Marshall said they need to dismiss the myth of what a manufacturing job is nowadays.

"It's not like a [1960s] job where your grandfather worked," Marshall said. "It was dirty and unsafe and dark. [Now,] we have the latest technologies, [it's] very safe and our team members love working here."

Marshall added that the company wants to build the cars where they sell the cars. So although Toyota is a Japanese automaker, they want to hire American workers to make the cars it sells in the U.S.

"It's important that, not only we make the investment here, but that we hire the people within the communities where we build and sell," she said.

With the expansion, Toyota plans to produce 40,000 more vehicles per year annually, bringing its yearly production total in Indiana to 440,000.
