Trash hauler to open job center in Pottstown
Solid waste and recycling company opening High Street recruitment, training center
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.
