Perks and Programs

We asked Mohawk Global Logistics Corp to share a few programs they feel really capture what's unique about their workplace. Here is what they had to say.

  • MohawkOne Recognition: The MohawkOne Recognition Program is based upon the concept of acknowledging employee contributions & positive actions. Mohawk Global Logistics Corp recognizes & values the strength in our employees, and will continue to encourage & support their efforts. This is a way for Mohawk to say thank you! Employees can recognize coworkers who have exemplified one of (6) Company Core Values: Helpfulness, Expertise, Engagement, Ingenuity, Community or Reliability. Submissions may come from coworkers and managers, & tokens are awarded. Employees can play a variety of games with their tokens to earn points, which can be converted to funds on a debit card, or merchant gift cards. Additional tokens/points are given for birthdays, years of service, downloading the mobile app, etc. MohawkOne - One Vision, One Team, One Spirit!
  • CCS/CES Accreditation: Mohawk offers our employees opportunities to expand their knowledge and hone their professional skills while continuing to stay up on the rapidly changing marketplace within the import and export industries. Courses in Certified Customs Specialist, Certified Export Specialist and U.S. Licensed Customs Broker are just a few examples of these programs. Employees also receive bonus points from the MohawkOne recognition program upon successful completion.
  • Cargo Marine Insurance Commissions: Employees have the opportunity to earn a sales commission on marine cargo insurance purchased by our clients for the purpose of cargo protection during transport on ocean vessels as part of our transportation services.
  • Bonus Incentive Program: Mohawk Global Logistics Corp has an incentivized bonus program in addition to our end of the year discretionary bonus program. This program allows for a bonus “kicker” for Import, Export and Domestic Departments that meet their annual budgets. In addition, each branch office’s employees are awarded if they as a branch meet budget, and there’s also a department bonus for each department meeting their budget.
  • MGL University: In March 2017, Mohawk proudly launched MGL University and had its first graduating class! This initiative was designed to provide comprehensive and collaborative training for both new and incumbent employees from all locations and job levels, while providing networking opportunities and field trips to industry-specific sites.
  • Wholesale Club Memberships: Mohawk offers employees and their families a company-paid annual membership to their choice of BJ's Wholesale Club, Sam's Club or Costco.
  • Flu Shot Clinic: Mohawk hosts an annual on-site flu shot clinic free of charge for employees and their families.
  • Mohawk Employee Exchange Program: Mohawk has developed an Employee Exchange Program with our overseas partners, allowing qualified employees to spend 90 days with them. One of our employees completed an exchange with our agent in China. Our 2nd employee returned from Germany with these comments: "Just in case I haven’t said it before, thank you for picking me for this trip. It was a great experience and definitely rewarding! It was good to see not only the German way of business but also since Mohawk is my first non-internship company, it was good to see how another company runs and learn their culture. I was definitely always Team Mohawk but after being away my appreciation for this company and its people has bumped up even higher. So thank you!"
  • Holiday Bonus Cash: At Easter/Passover and Thanksgiving, the Mohawk partners distribute cash envelopes as a small token of appreciation to all employees for their Holiday needs.
  • Verizon Corporate Discounts: Every employee can take advantage of our corporate discounts for phone, Fios television and internet services, simply by providing verification of current employee status.

How to Get Hired

We asked Mohawk Global Logistics Corp for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.

What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?

Ideal prospective employees must be motivated, enthusiastic and flexible.  They must possess the ability to work within a team.  They need to have a sense of urgency and thoroughness in regard to their work.  They must be accommodating and empathetic not only to work well externally with our clients but internally with their fellow employees.  They would also possess such skills as the ability to solve problems, multi-task and have excellent written and verbal communication skills. We use a pre-employment assessment known as Caliper to help determine if the candidate is a good fit for Mohawk Global Logistics Corp using the aforementioned characteristics and attributes. 

What can prospective employees do to get your attention?

Prospective employees should research our web page, www.mohawkglobal.com to learn more about us and promote themselves by submitting resumes and applications to csardella@mohawkglobal.com.  Resumes indicating industry experience, skills and strengths are a must, but candidates who show interest in outside organizations, leadership and volunteerism will stand out. They can reach out to us at career fairs and through job postings (Indeed, LinkedIn, Jobs In Logistics).  They can network with current employees, as we have an employee referral program in place.  During the interview process, they should dress professionally, ask good questions and promote all of their skills and strengths.

Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?

We continue to hire people in double digit numbers annually for all areas of the company (Operations, Sales & Corporate Support).

What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?

To find out more, we direct interested candidates to our website www.mohawkglobal.com to learn about the company.  Under the Careers link, they can learn more about any job opportunities that might be available and a lot about who we are as a company and as qualified professionals in the transportation arena. They can also network with our employees via connections on LinkedIn and visit our LinkedIn Corporate Page.  Interested candidates can submit cover letters and resumes to csardella@mohawkglobal.com.
