Albany  - Representatives from Kia Motors and the Georgia Labor Department held a job fair Thursday at Albany Technical College.   Kia will hire 2,500 employees to staff their new plant in West Point. 

Many Albany Tech students seemed interested in what representatives had to say and the fact that these jobs come with competitive wages and benefits.

"I heard about it from my instructor Mel Underwood and I wanted to go ahead and get a career started so I have a temporary job right now and I'm trying to go ahead and get on that track," said Albany Tech Student  Alexander Burgess.

"The entry level salary for the production range is around $14 and hour and specialized positions in the tool and die maintenance is $20 an hour starting, so very good paying positions," said Mel Wages of the Georgia Department of Labor.

Interested applicants must apply online.  You can find a link to Kia's website on our website. 

If you're interested in applying for positions that include die maintenance, production, and maintenance you have to apply HERE by February 7th.
