I'm not for sure as to the interviews and job postings but you can look on toyotageorgetown.com and that did have some of the listingson there. And if I hear anything about it at work will post it here. But they should start bringing people into train a few months before production starts.

And let's not forget that they have pushed back the official date of opening till 2010, and with the recent rains we have had from Fay the construction has to be a bit behind schedule. They are working fast and furious all along and around the site, but there is only so much progress that can be done outside with the weather not cooperating. If we get hit with Gustov then there is more rain to deal with. Right now, things have dried enough for them to pick up on the outside infrastructure components again, and I feel sure they never ceased inside work.

Sorry it has taken so long to respond to the post. We have been getting alot of overtime to get ready for the venza cross over. Cmm just keep checking back it could change on a daily basis. We haven't heard anything new about any plants except Indiana will send some workers to tmmk to cross train with us while the lines are getting changed over.

Mississippi will be getting the prius which is a hybrid. They will be the first us company to build the prius because of lack of batteries but now with the new battery plants being opened toyota shouldn't have a battery shortage anymore. I would bet that blue springs will have an suv or maybe truck also. Most of the lines are set to build multiple vehicles. Like at my plant we will use the same robots and **** to build a camry and a venza. I haven't really heard of a plant that just builds one car but that is a good thing.

I was told the building would be turnover to put the equipment in Jan. 2009. So I thought Toyota would be training people in Kentucky. I was wondering toyotaemployeeky why is building one car a good thing?Also what do you mean by Cmm just keep checking back it could change on a daily basis.

Toyota is known for surprises.

I worked at the Indiana plant (security/fire/ems) for one year of construction and two years of production. Even one year prior to opening there were all sorts of rumors about what vehicle they were going to build there, even though they announced it was going to be the T-100. Well, it ended up being the Tundra. Then the rumor was spreading that they were going to build an SUV there as well. I wish I would have saved all the newspaper clippings of suspected vehicles. There were dozens of them.
