Mickey Truck Bodies will be hiring for up to 50 openings through March. Mickey is a manufacturer of a variety of truck styles, from box trucks to emergency vehicles, and truck equipment. It also runs a nationwide network of full-service centers and a parts store. Most of the job openings are for welders, installers, and assemblers, and many are for Mickey’s new facility in High Point. Mickey was founded in High Point in 1904, and the facility that opened in October is its fourth in that city. It features fifteen bays for liftgate installation and chassis preparation. Liftgates are hydraulically- or pneumatically-controlled platforms permanently installed on van bodies. Mickey expects to install 5,000 liftgates this year and triple van body production over the next two years. President Dean Sink notes over 40% of the company’s 400 fulltime employees have been with the company over five years; and 30%, over ten. One reason is competitive wages with a generous benefits package that includes incentives rewarding safety, quality, and attendance.
