XPO Logistics Inc. plans to hire more than 4,000 workers across North America, including more than 750 in the San Bernardino area.
The Connecticut-based company is looking to fill openings for material handlers, inventory specialists, industrial engineers and robotic maintenance technicians, among other jobs. The openings include full-time and part-time positions with a variety of shift options.
The hiring initiative will bolster XPO’s workforce ahead of the planned spin-off of its logistics segment into GXO Logistics Inc. later this year. The logistics business includes warehousing, reverse logistics, distribution and inventory management, among other supply chain services.
“Our retail and e-commerce customers, in particular, have experienced significant growth, Maryclaire Hammond, the company’s senior vice president of human resources, said in a statement. “We’re excited to continue offering them world-class service with new team members from our local communities.”
The company says it offers competitive pay with benefits that start on the first day of employment. Data from Indeed.com show material handlers with XPO average $15.06 an hour, while dock workers average $18.53 and truck drivers average $24.96 an hour.
XPO is the second-largest contract logistics provider and the second largest freight broker globally, and a top three less-than-truckload provider in North America. The company maintains a network of 1,621 locations in 30 countries to serve more than 50,000 customers.
XPO employs 140,000 workers, including 108,000 permanent employees and 32,000 temporary workers.
Applicants can search open positions by location and keyword on XPO’s Careers site and apply online.
XPO isn’t the only Inland Empire business that’s looking to hire. Tortoise Rock Casino held a job fair Tuesday, May 18 to fill an estimated 40 jobs in Twentynine Palms, and San Manuel Casino hosted a three-day virtual career fair last month as it looks to fill more than 2,000 permanent, full-time jobs.
