Aim Mechanic Wins Family Vacation to Disney World

GIRARD, Ohio — For his efforts in recruiting new workers to Aim Transportation Solutions, Robert Carlson earn himself and his family an all-expense-paid, one-week vacation to Disney World.

To counteract a national shortage of driver and diesel technicians in the transportation industry, Aim Transportation Solutions hosts year-round recruitment contests. Employees can earn anywhere from $1,000 to $2,000 bonuses when they successfully refer a driver or diesel mechanic who gets hired by the company.

This summer, employees who made referrals earned $2,000 plus an entry into a drawing for the Disney World trip. Over the last three months, the company brought on four new drivers and two technicians, according to a release.

John Casey, Aim service manager for Hensley Beverage, Chandler, Ariz. and Robert Carlson, diesel technician.

“In this industry and in this climate, every single driver and mechanic makes a world of difference for us and our valued customers,” said Scott Fleming, Aim co-president. “We’re incredibly fortunate to have the collective effort of the Aim family helping us bring in highly-skilled and experienced personnel to make Aim better and better each day.”

Carlson learned the good news after a drawing on Aug. 31. Carlson is a diesel technician with Aim’s ProShop operation in Chandler, Ariz. for the company’s customer Hensley Beverage.

Five other Aim employees included in the drawing were Nicholas Golec, driver for Astro Shapes; Joshua Robinson, mechanic at Aim shop in Canton; Paul Morales, driver for Astro Shapes; Reggie Curry, driver for Jade Sterling; Steven Leslie, driver for Wincore Swainsboro.

“Your efforts in supporting Aim as a best-in-class provider of commercial transportation services and a preferred career destination do not go unnoticed,” said Patty Durkin, Aim’s vice president of human resources.
