The St. Louis Agency on Training and Employment (SLATE) announces a hiring event for all job seekers interested in transportation and logistics careers and to help dislocated workers from Yellow Trucking and DHL companies find new employment. The event will take place on Wednesday, August 23, 2023, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., in the 1st Floor Conference Room of 1520 Market Street, St. Louis, MO 63103.
The following employers have confirmed attendance: Grey Eagle Distributing; City of St. Louis; FedEx; Watco; Missouri Central Bus; Bi-State-Metro Bus; Performance Food Group; Professional Transportation Inc.; Missouri State Highway Patrol; Missouri Department of Transportation; and USPS. The St. Louis Community College and MTC Truck Driving School will be on hand to offer professional truck driving and other training programs to those interested in changing careers or transitioning into new roles.
“It has been devastating to watch numerous companies over the past few weeks close their doors, and individuals are left trying to figure out what’s next. As the employment and training entity for the City of St. Louis, SLATE is aiming to step in and connect those individuals to opportunities to ensure they are able to continue to provide for themselves and their families,” said Fredrecka McGlown, SLATE Executive Director.
Meter parking is available along Market Street; however, we recommend visitors park at Kiel Center Garage, situated immediately behind our building, at the corner of Clark &16th.
