Mitsubishi Motors North America president and chief executive officer Fred Diaz has said that the move of its headquarters from Cypress, Calif., to Franklin, Tenn., is an important part of its plan “to reinvent every aspect of Mitsubishi Motors in the U.S.”
But to make that work, the company is looking for the best employees, from within and outside of the auto industry, Diaz said.
He said the company’s formal recruiting efforts kick off with a job fair on Tuesday and Wednesday in Franklin. MMNA is currently hiring to fill more than 150 open positions across the company.
“We encourage anyone eager to help write the roadmap for our future to join us,” Diaz said in a news release.
Mitsubishi Motors said its benefits include health care and a 401(k) package, a new inclusive and modern workspace, a casual dress policy and a flexible work schedule.
The company also said it offers employees “all the gourmet coffee you can drink and the chance to be part of building something very special.”
MMNA said its business has seen six straight years of annual sales gains, with the last two years showing more than 100,000 sales.
But the company says over the past 18 months, it has seen “the greatest evolution.” One example is that 80% of the leadership team is new to the company or newly promoted to the role. That, according to MMNA, brings “new experiences, backgrounds and a diversity of thought to the team.”
Another example is the appointment of 34 new dealer partners across the country. Also, the company has expanded its regional network from two offices to four. Those offices are located in Cypress, Calif.; Irving, Texas; Swedesboro, N.Y.; and Lake Mary, Fla.).
Mitsubishi also said it was the most-improved brand in the J.D. Power and Associates’ 2018 Customer Satisfaction Index.
