AutoMax Recruiting and Training, the most requested automotive recruitment company in the United States, has just announced that they are prepared to offer their services to dealerships looking to hire staff in the wake of the storm, as well as assist those that are in need of a job.
"Our headquarters are in NJ, right in the path of Hurricane Sandy." Says Craig Lockerd, CEO and founder of AutoMax Recruiting and Training. "But we have made special arrangements to ensure that our dealer clients are taken care of. With trainers all over the country, we are in a unique position to ensure that dealerships are staffed and people that are left jobless due to the storm have a way to find work."
In preparing for the inevitable, AutoMax has reached out to Monster Jobs to see what they can do to help in these relief efforts.
"We have offices right in the path of Hurricane Sandy, we understand what people are about to go through." Said Doug Williams, inside sales consultant for Monster. "Keeping that in mind we wanted to do our part and help both AutoMax and people in need to find work, so we are offering up free listings so that AutoMax can do just that."
In an effort to lessen the burden of lost jobs, AutoMax, their dozen employees and 30 trainers will be donating their time to ensure any employee who can't return back to work at their dealership has a place to work in the interim.
"During Irene we had dealerships that completely closed or moved, then on top of losing their homes many folks lost their jobs." Says Gregory Gershman, recruiter and trainer at AutoMax. "With our extensive network of partners, trainers and employees we have a wealth of resources at our disposal that will go a long way to helping those in need."
With many people saying that Hurricane Sandy will alter the look of the east coast AutoMax Recruiting And Training is urging other business, both in the auto industry and out, both in New England and in the rest of the country to give where they can, when they can.
