Chrysler upgrades its career Web site to attract more candidates

Article by Christian A., on July 23, 2012

Chrysler Group has a new Web site that simplifies job listings and aids potential employees with the various career opportunities in the company. Chrysler is doing this to stand out in this job market that has grown increasingly more competitive. The revised online jobs portal is chryslercareers.com, which comes with listings of hourly and salaried positions.

This is different from its older system where there were different sites for various employment types. Spokesman Mike Palese said that the site was being revamped to offer a strong representation of what Chrysler is.

He said that Chrysler is hopeful that having the one-stop Web site for job openings will expand the number of applicants. He said that for Chrysler to attract more candidates, it will have to reach out to a bigger community of interest.

The Web site lists over 350 positions at Chrysler. The U.S. sales grew 30% this year and the company continues to increase its market share while recovering from the industry's sales downturn in 2008-09, when it was compelled to enter a government-led restructuring.

The company revealed plans to hire more people in Ohio at its Toledo Assembly Complex and at its Jefferson North Assembly plant in Detroit.

Chrysler said that it will add 1,100 jobs by the last quarter of 2013 at the Toledo facility to increase the production of the Jeep Wrangler and the Wrangler Unlimited. There will be about 1,100 jobs more at the Jefferson North plant by November as Chrysler gets ready to boost production at the factory that produces the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango.

With its world-class suspension and dynamics, the new 2011 Dodge Durango is able to deliver a suitable performance on the road while being as flexible as a three-row sports utility vehicle. Thanks to the fact that Dodge used premium performance SUVs currently available in the market as benchmark, the brand was able to provide the new crossover with more refined parts, components and structural attributes. In fact, the new Dodge Durango features suspension and electronics usually found in more expensive SUVs.

On the other hand, the new 2011 Dodge Durango features unibody structure made from high-strength and ultra-high-strength steels. Interestingly, around 52 percent of the Durango's structure is made from high-strength and ultra-high-strength steels. Thanks to over 5,500 welds and over 4,100 mm of arc welding, the body structure of the Durango has high levels of torsional stiffness -- even greater than that of the Mercedes-Benz GL.

Since the suspension of the 2011 Dodge Durango has been with the high-strength, flex has been greatly reduced compared to the body-on-frame design of the previous model. The new Durango features new short/long arm suspension on the front and isolated multi-link suspension on the rear. This suspension system comes with separate front and rear cradles, thus enhancing on-road handling as well as comfort.

In addition, the aggressive shock and spring rates and large sway bars were installed on the all-new Dodge Durango, allowing the SUV to efficiently handle body roll during hard turning maneuvers. Featured as standard on the new Dodge Durango is an electronic stability control which has the capability to maintain tire grip and vehicle stability could be enhanced by available electro-hydraulic performance steering.
