ABX Air, Inc., (NASDAQ:ABXA) the largest operator of cargo Boeing 767-200s in the world, is expanding its work force in Roanoke. The company’s package sorters play a critical role in its success by accurately and efficiently sorting over six million pounds of freight each weeknight.
ABX Air values its people and the excellent service they provide to our customers.
“Our employees are the reason we can keep our service commitments to customers,” said Eric Salyers, Outbase Recruiting Supervisor. “Each of the millions of packages in the system is coded, and our employees use those codes to route them through the sort process.”
Sorting freight is a fast-paced and physical job. Candidates must be able to lift at least 35 pounds consistently and without assistance, push or pull heavy carts, climb steps and work at heights, and have good hand-eye coordination. The screening process includes meeting federal transportation requirements regarding drug and alcohol testing and background checks.
At the ABX Air operation in Roanoke, compensation starts at $10 per hour including a nighttime premium. Additionally, after 120 days, full and part-time employees are eligible for a bonus program; medical, dental, vision and life insurance; tuition assistance; paid vacations and holidays; a 401(k) program and more.
“Our package handlers are the backbone of our network,” said Todd France, Senior Director of Regional Hubs. “We absolutely could not provide the excellent customer service we do without them.”
