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 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 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, as much as our staff is using the site, as well as HR for recruiting. Interested candidates can submit cover letters and resumes to csardella@mohawkglobal.com.
