Toyota hires local grads from Advanced Manufacturing Technician Program

Two years ago Toyota Texas and Alamo Colleges invested in Bexar County's future workforce. Now that collaboration started to pay big dividends.

Nine recent graduates of the first Advanced Manufacturing Technician (AMT) program are becoming full-time
Toyota Texas team members.

"The graduates' incredible efforts, excellent teamwork and dedication to continuous improvement impressed everyone at Toyota, so we extended full-time job offers to all nine graduates who applied," said Joe DaRosa, President, Toyota Texas. "Our partnership with Alamo Colleges demonstrates that when good ideas are shared, great things can happen, and we're thrilled that these fine young graduates will join our team."

"Our congratulations to these graduates and their families on reaching this milestone on the way to a bright future," added Alamo Colleges Chancellor Dr. Bruce Leslie. "It is always so rewarding for us to see the culmination of partnerships such as the this one, and we are deeply grateful to Toyota Texas for helping us to create such an outstanding opportunity for these students and many more to come."

With successful completion of AMT program, these new hires have the potential to earn as much as US$ 50,000 annually, plus benefits.

"I want to congratulate Toyota Texas for investing in our future workforce through their Advanced Manufacturing Technician program," said Hope Andrade, the Texas Workforce Commissioner Representing Employers. "I am so proud of the first graduating class for all their hard work and for making this commitment to high-demand skills training that will forever change their lives."
