On March 22, 2016, Epes Transport had the pleasure of hosting an onsite career day event for 44 area high school students from Weaver Education Center, a vocational/technical school located in Greensboro, NC. The event focused on providing information about our operation, career opportunities, continued education and details about our Maintenance Apprentice Program. Students had an opportunity to hear from key members of the maintenance team; discuss questions with floor technicians and subject matter experts; get a firsthand look at our diagnostic process, preventative maintenance duties and tire/trailer shop operations; and climb into a new Freightliner truck and trailer to get a personal look at what our drivers and technicians see on a daily basis.
The overall feedback was positive from the students, their instructors and Epes personnel. Epes continues to be committed to devoting time and attention to our youth by providing insight on career opportunities available within the transportation industry.
