Valley Bulk Inc.

Workforce Challenge

Due to the 2008 recession, Valley Bulk had to reduce the number of trucks in their fleet. By 2014, business was picking up and the firm was in need of good quality drivers.

Workforce Solution

Valley Bulk hired five new drivers through the San Bernardino County WIB’s On-the-Job Training program. The program reimburses employers who hire new workers and pays up to 50 percent of a new employee’s salary while they learn the new position. “I found this program to be a win-win situation for both the employee and our company,” said Lloyd McCoy of Valley Bulk.

Outcomes & Benefits

The company is now operating at a full capacity fleet. Added McCoy, “I feel it’s important to help newly qualified workers and train them on the job. Without the WIB, I would not be able to offer this opportunity to local residents. I will continue to use the service as long as it’s available.”
