As Penske Truck Leasing indicated in a blog post earlier this week, the company is bullish on hiring in 2011, with company recruiters attending U.S. technical school and U.S. college employment fairs.
“The good news for job hunters is that we are hiring again at a moderate pace across North America,” Penske’s Ken Hurley told “Move Ahead” in a Jan. 10 post. Hurley is Penske Truck Leasing’s senior vice president of human resources.
The company will be visiting Universal Technical Institute and WyoTech campuses over the coming months to recruit diesel engine and truck maintenance technicians, to service a Penske fleet of commercial and consumer trucks that numbers over 210,000. Penske will also visit Nashville Auto-Diesel College.
