In response to a significant backlog of secured contract work on both the heavy civil contracting and materials segments of their business platform, H&K Group, Inc. (H&K) and The H&K Group Family of Companies held an extremely successful, multi-divisional Job Fair on Saturday, March 12, 2016.
Hosted at the company’s expansive Materials Division facility in Skippack, The H&K Group’s Job Fair enabled hiring managers to conduct interviews in an effort to fill numerous full-time positions in both the trades and skilled/technical employment levels. In attendance to conduct same day interviews were managers from many of H&K’s heavy civil contracting, construction materials and materials/freight transport affiliates. Company ownership was also on hand to meet prospective candidates, guide and direct individuals to H&K’s various testing and interview locations as well observe and gauge the overall success of the hiring event.
The H&K Group is extremely delighted to announce that 186 applicants attended the Job Fair and hiring managers filled 41 key positions on March 12th. Key positions have been filled in the following areas: road mechanics, operators, general laborers, foremen and numerous (CDL) tri axle drivers.
Commenting on the overwhelming success of H&K’s March 12th Job Fair the morning of the event, President and Chief Executive Officer, Scott B. Haines, indicated, “We had high expectations for our first Job Fair of 2016, but did not expect the tremendous turnout and high level of candidate quality that we’ve seen today. I am thrilled with the excitement of the candidates, and fully anticipate great hiring success if the interest and eagerness of the candidates translates to proper qualifications and experience. We have a very strong project backlog ahead of us for 2016 and continue to see a huge demand for qualified employee candidates capable of producing, hauling, building or constructing the legendary products and services our customers and clients demand.” Interested in employment with The H&K Group?
