Hyster looking for a few good men and women

Company partners with Snelling Search to hire 32 veterans to date.

By ·

This Veterans Day, Hyster Company continues looking to veterans of the U.S. armed forces for its dealers to grow their sales force. The company and its dealer network have been working with Snelling Search’s Military Division since November 2011, and to date, Hyster
dealers have hired 32 veterans through the program.

“Our veterans are skilled, dedicated, high-character, hard-working individuals, and we want them on our team,” said Jonathan Dawley, president of Hyster Distribution. “At Hyster, we know the value provided by employees who have served in the U.S. military. We are actively pursuing veterans to deliver the very best in materials handling equipment and service to the industry through our expansive dealer network. The pool of skilled veterans is an ideal labor force for our dealers as Hyster continues to be a leader the
industry.”

Snelling Search was selected because of the military recruiting team’s ability to match skill sets to company culture for a long-term fit. Multiple rounds of candidates and hiring have resulted in dozens of filled positions at several levels throughout the Hyster® dealer network. Many of the newly hired veterans have attended the Hyster Sales Academy training program. “Working with Snelling Search resulted in NITCO hiring multiple highly skilled sales professionals,” said Alan Hammersley, COO for Northland Industrial Trucks Company, Inc. (NITCO), a local Hyster dealer. “Our expectations were clearly exceeded, and we are now on our second hiring round.”

“MH appreciates the opportunity we’ve had to work with Snelling Search to recruit new sales personnel for our team,” said Fred Metzger, president of MH Equipment Company. “The Snelling team has gained an insightful understanding of MH’s culture and vision for qualified employment candidates, and provided a pre-screened pool of prospects from which we have made multiple hires.”
