Airbus has posted its first hourly manufacturing positions for its assembly line in Mobile, Ala., the planemaker said Tuesday.

Airbus is looking for aircraft structure/installation mechanics, installers for aircraft cabin furnishings and aircraft electricians.

Last year, Airbus broke ground for an assembly line for its A320 family of commercial airplanes in Mobile. Major construction has begun.

Successful candidates will have two weeks of pre-employment training. If successful with the training, they will go for on-the-job training in Hamburg, Germany, Toulouse, France, and possibly Tianjin, China, before returning to Mobile for work.

Starting pay for all the positions range from $13 an hour to $22 an hour plus benefits based on skills, experience and education.

Hiring for manufacturing jobs will continue throughout 2014, the company said.
