County of San Bernardino Workforce Investment Boar

S&S Trucking

Workforce Challenge

S & S Trucking’s warehouse manager, Justin Roberts, needed employees that could help launch a new warehouse in Ontario. When a Workforce Investment Board representative approached Justin, he was sifting through hundreds of resumes trying to identify the right applicants. Justin learned that he could access no-cost screening and recruitment services through the County of San Bernardino Workforce Investment Board.

Workforce Solution

The Workforce Investment Board offered to screen applicants and refer the most qualified for consideration. When Justin interviewed Louis Garcia and Ernest Perez, two candidates recommended by the Workforce Investment Board, he knew they were a great fit. The Workforce Investment Board then provided funds through its On-The-Job Training program to help offset wages for the first 90 days of employment.

Louis and Ernest were the first of several employees referred to S & S Trucking and then trained with On-The-Job Training funds. Five years later, Louis and Ernest still work with S & S Trucking and have been promoted to positions as assistant warehouse managers.

Outcomes & Benefits

“The Workforce Investment Board took the guess work out of hiring,” says Justin. “With job websites, I was wasting valuable time trying to identify the right candidates. The Workforce Investment Board team eliminated the hassle and helped us find excellent employees that have stayed with our company. We look forward to working with the Workforce Investment Board as we grow.”
