Built in the USA.
BEING HERE MAKES US BETTER.
When we decided to begin manufacturing in the United States, we were confident of success. There’s a growing demand for Kia cars and CUVs, and we wanted to better serve that need, but you have to do more than that to succeed. You need to surround yourself with quality people. Like the folks at our Georgia facility.
We believe we’re building more than great cars in the U.S.—because we are. Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia continues to be a significant growth enabler for the West Point community and the Kia brand. The plant operates three shifts and is responsible for the creation of more than 15,000 jobs (plant and suppliers). More than 40 percent of Kia’s vehicles, the Optima and Sorento, are built in West Point.
Not only are we producing some of the most technologically advanced vehicles around, but we’re doing it the Kia Way—with our “one-system/one-team” approach that’s built on trust, mutual respect, and open communication among all team members.
We’re creating something truly special in West Point. Because of our continued commitment to developing the most efficient, environmentally-sustainable, and sophisticated manufacturing facility in the country, we’ve reached the production of our two millionth vehicle in the U.S. And we’re just getting started. We’re in it for the long haul. That means we’re dedicated not only to taking care of the Kia family, but also to looking after the environment. After all, it’s everyone’s home.

I worked at Kia Motors America full-time (More than 3 years)
Great company to work for with many opportunities to grow
Have to be willing to put in the hours to get big paychecks
I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Kia Motors America (Irvine, CA) in May 2011.
Initially applied for an engineering position, but HR called and suggested a different position. Interviewed for it and got the offer. The interview went well, was very natural. asked general questions, interests, and skills.
