Steel Dust Recycling is looking for its next great employee
MILPORT, AL. (WCBI) – There are job opportunities; whether it is a restaurant, a retailer or a factory, employers hire.
Recycling Steel Dust Recycling or SDR is looking for its next great employee. The work was fast and efficient in 2019 and the company wants to get things back on track.
“The market there seems to have dried up to try to attract talent, but I know people need jobs, they just don’t come,” said human resources manager Joe Fleming.
SDR is hosting a job fair on Wednesday, September 8, 2021, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., to restore its winning team. Fleming said people have benefited from unemployment benefits while continuing, but believe they have found a way to get people back to work.
“One of the ways we’re trying to ease them back into it is because our starting price used to be around $ 13.00 an hour, so we’ve made some adjustments to it, so now we’re offering $ 15.00 an hour just for entry level. “Just to try to get you into our company,” Fleming said.
The steel dust recycling team needs 12-15 people to fill positions in their staff and if these positions are filled as soon as possible; employees and workers believe that operations will be a little smoother.
“This will make us move in the right direction, be able to fill all these positions, will help us maintain a very efficient operation. Exit the SDR and join the staff, join our family, “said Ralph Colvern, head of training.
Bringing people in the door is just the beginning. Fleming believes that with the benefits offered and the family environment they have, people will want to stay.
“These are growth opportunities once you join the company and we’re looking for people who don’t just come here and take us in a hurry, we’re here in the long run, we want people to stay with us until retirement,” Fleming said.
Recycling Steel Dust Recycling has been in Milport since 2007.
