USA: Rogue production opening up Nissan jobs

MURFREESBORO — With resumes in hand, hundreds of people lined up outside the Tennessee Career Center Saturday for a chance at landing a job with Nissan.

Antoinette Davis, 27, traveled all the way from Nashville to apply after recently being laid off by Vanderbilt University dining services.

“I’m trying to look for something more stable, some stability for my family,” said Davis, the mother of an infant and 6-year-old.

The job fair was sponsored by the Tennessee Department of Labor and presented by Yates at Nissan, a staffing company that does hiring for the vehicle production plants in Smyrna and Decherd. In addition to the Murfreesboro location, a job fair was held in the Shelbyville office.

“It’s a great partnership we have with Yates at Nissan and our goal is to get people back to work. It’s a win-win for everyone, it truly is. It’s what we do as an agency and as a department is to get people back to work,” said Melinda Williams, administrator of marketing and communication with the Tennessee Department of Labor. “We’ve had about 500 to 600 people come in less than an hour.”

Yates Services is currently hiring for nights, afternoons, weekends and rotating shifts for assembly production, material handling, maintenance, tool and die and warehouse support.

Recent Riverdale High School graduate Amber Keith, 18, was applying for Nissan in order to have a good-paying job to save money for college.

“I want to go to school to be an ultrasound tech,” said Keith, whose father has worked on the assembly line at Nissan for 20 years. “And I’m not afraid of hard work.”
