D-One Auto Transport

Workforce Challenge

D-One Auto Transport needed to hire several drivers with Commercial Drivers Licenses and experience in long-haul automotive transportation. This is a very specialized area of trucking and the company was having difficulty identifying qualified candidates.

Workforce Solution

D-One contacted Maricopa Workforce Connections (MWC) for assistance with recruiting for the open positions. MWC used its current relationship with 3rd party vendors to seek the specialized talent that was needed. We also used the WIA One-Stop network to promote this opportunity to neighboring states with the belief that the needed talent could come from outside the state.

Outcomes & Benefits

D-One Auto Transport received several responses from drivers currently employed, as well from some drivers who were separating from the military. The company hired the first driver within 2 weeks, with the second hire coming a month later. “I have several colleagues with similar transportation businesses, and they all told me that finding drivers with the skill-sets I needed was going to be impossible. It was -- until I ran into a representative from Maricopa Workforce Connection,” said Maurice Dickson, owner of D-One.
