The NACC Workforce Development personnel who will be providing the assistance have received training in the process through Volkswagen. NACC is the only community college in Alabama designated by Volkswagen as an application assistance center. “We consider our role in this as a public service to the community,” stated NACC President Dr. David Campbell. “We want to do whatever we can to help people obtain employment in these hard economic times.”

Application assistance will also be available from Alabama Career Center locations in Scottsboro and Fort Payne. Alabama’s mobile career center is located in Bridgeport to assist with VW applications.

While individuals can submit their applications online from any computer with internet access, these centers are provided for those who need assistance with the application process and for those who may lack access to high speed internet. Starting pay for production team member positions starts at $14.50 per hour and increases to $19.50 per hour over 36 months. For additional information, telephone NACC at ext. 217 or 375.
