DHL Express will recruit approximately 900 new positions as the company completes the latest USD 108m expansion of its Americas Hub at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Airport (CVG), the company said.
The expansion to a new day sort operation and projected growth in shipments is expected to increase the hub´s workforce to more than 3,300 from the current 2,400 employees. The expected shipment growth will require DHL to add a new day shift seven days a week, beginning in May, to complement the evening shifts currently running at the hub.
The new jobs at the DHL hub, an equal mix of full- and part-time positions, offer health benefits and tuition reimbursement, as well as allow for a variety of flexible work schedules. Those hired for these new positions will also benefit from the company´s employee training and career advancement programs. DHL has been certified as a Top Employer in the US in the past two years and again in 2017.
In order to fill these new positions, DHL will hold a job fair on Saturday, March 4, at the CVG Centre in Erlanger. Those hired should be ready to begin work as soon as pre-employment processing is complete, and no later than May 1st when the new daytime operation is scheduled to begin.
