“We weren’t trying to change the world, we needed to change ours”
Incorporated in 2006, CWT Staffing was initially created to support our management business with Staffing/Recruiting services providing LTL cross dock forklift operators.
Frustrated by purchasing staffing services from traditional personnel agencies whom were labour “generalists”, we felt that we could better serve this niche market by developing our own recruiting program. We quickly realized that we were filling a void in the transportation industry by specializing in one type of employee- Cross dock propane counter-balance forklift operators.
Each of our new dock employees goes through an intensive paid training session prior to reporting for their first shift. This training period is split between the classroom, and actually working on a cross dock in a “live” environment, where forklift skills can be properly evaluated.
We are excited to have recently opened our new recruiting office in Edmonton AB in October 2012. Located just north of the West Edmonton Mall, this office will serve and grow our Alberta customer base.
