Do you have an application form and how long does it typically take to complete?

Yes we do via our website www.wallworktrucks.com/careers that will take you to our webpage with a link to a list of our open positions. From there, choose which position to apply for and start a profile for yourself. This profile will become your employee profile if hired. The application can take anywhere from 10 to 40 minutes depending on how much experience you choose to include. Having a resume to link to the application will help with the length of time it takes to fill it out.

The offer can come anytime between the end of the first interview up to a month or more depending on the amount of applicants. We understand that most techs have more than a couple offers typically, so our offer should come within a week or 2.

Approximately how long does the full hiring process take from submitting the application to the time of the hiring decision?

The hiring process can take anywhere from a few days to a couple months. It mostly depends on the position and the amount of applicants. We're not in the habit of hiring the one person that applied just to fill the position. We are looking for the right talent that fits the right shop.
