Recruiting Arc Works Talents

Currently, 2 of these talents are employed as production operators.
A place of internship for students
AB7 America is also an internship site for students enrolled in the material handling course.
For 3 months, a team of 1 to 4 students with a supervisor from Arc Broward come to AB7 in the morning for field training. They then go to lunch and spend the afternoon for theoretical training and testing at Arc Broward. If they graduate, after 3 months, Arc Broward helps them find a job.
A win-win situation
Hiring talent from Arc Works is a win-win situation for the person hired as well as for the company, which invests in diversifying and developing its workforce.
The AB7 group is committed to the theme of disability by offering positions open to people with disabilities and by entering into partnerships with adapted companies for the recruitment of personnel with disabilities such as Arc Broward.
Thank you Arc Broward for giving this award to AB7 America!
