BROWNSTOWN, Mich. – General Motors will hold two hiring events this week for full-time job openings at its Brownstown Battery Assembly Plant.

The first hiring event will take place from 8 a.m.-2 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 5, at the Brownstown Event Center off of King Road. The second event will be held from 8 a.m.-2 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 12, also at the Brownstown Event Center.

The automaker is looking to hire sub-assemblers at a starting rate of $15 per hour.

GM says the Brownstown plant plays a key role in its Cruise autonomous vehicle program and produces roof modules for all of Cruise’s self-driving vehicles. The plant also produces lithium-ion battery packs for the GMC Hummer EV and Cadillac LYRIQ.
