POTTSTOWN » J.P. Mascaro & Sons will be open­ing a re­cruit­ing and train­ing cen­ter Sept. 17 at 221 E. High Street in Pottstown, in re­sponse to on­go­ing growth of the com­pany.

The cen­ter is the first re­cruit­ment and train­ing fa­cil­ity for the com­pany, which is cur­rently ex­pand­ing its op­er­a­tions in Berks County. The fa­cil­ity will serve as a hub to hire and train those seek­ing a sta­ble ca­reer with Mascaro, ac­cord­ing to the com­pany.

“As a leader in the solid waste and re­cy­cling in­dus­try, we are con­tin­u­ally bol­ster­ing our work force to meet busi­ness de­mands. Our com­pany is grow­ing and with that growth the need for ex­cep­tional em­ploy­ees is im­per­a­tive,” Di­rec­tor of Hu­man Re­sources Pasquale Mascaro Jr. said in a press re­lease. “We pride our­selves on our qual­ity prod­uct and our ex­cel­lent cus­tomer ser­vice. To guar­an­tee we main­tain this stan­dard, we have set up this cen­ter to cre­ate the top work force our clients ex­pect.”

Once open, the Pottstown of­fice will be staffed with sev­eral Mascaro em­ploy­ees, ac­cord­ing to spokesman Frank Sau. Ap­pli­cants will be able to move through the hir­ing process — from ap­pli­ca­tion to train­ing — at one lo­ca­tion.

“They can come in and learn about the com­pany. We have an ap­pli­ca­tion room for prospec­tive em­ploy­ees. They can in­ter­view and meet face to face with re­cruiters,” Sau said. “And de­pend­ing on what type of job we’re re­cruit­ing for, we have var­i­ous train­ing classes,” Sau said in a re­cent in­ter­view.

In ad­di­tion, Sau said the com­pany will pro­vide a shut­tle to take new em­ploy­ees from the E. High Street lo­ca­tion to their job­sites on a daily ba­sis.
