Modern Group Launches Technician Recruitment Campaign Featuring An Innovative $1,000 Signing Bonus

The Mid-Atlantic's Leading Material Handing, Arborist, Construction, and Standby Power Service Company Begins Market Leading Incentive Program To Expand Technician Staff At All Locations To Serve Its Customers

Bristol, PA

Due to continued growth of its service business, Modern Group has announced the start of an aggressive recruitment effort targeting qualified shop and road technicians for every division and market served by the company. This program includes a $1,000 signing bonus awarded after 90-days to all new technicians joining Modern. Technicians with experience servicing forklifts, construction and arborist equipment, warehouse docks and doors, standby power generators, cranes or bucket trucks are encouraged to apply.

As part of this effort Modern's President and CEO Paul Farrell was featured in a YouTube video promoting the signing bonus offer and what makes working at Modern Group so exceptional:

"Service is the cornerstone of our business and is the most critical relationship we have with our customers" said Mr. Farrell. "We are committed to recruiting, developing, and keeping the best service technicians in our territory. We pledge to every customer that when they see a Modern service vehicle arrive at their shop or speak with their branch's service manager we will put their needs first and will keep them rolling."

Mr. Farrell went on to explain that Modern is a 100% employee-owned company which offers competitive wages, full time hours, training and certification support, medical and dental, plus a 401k. Openings are currently at every service branch in Pennsylvania (Bristol, Allentown, Reading, Wilkes-Barre and York) and New Jersey (Edison and Hasbrouck Heights) as well as our road service fleet covering New Jersey, Eastern Pennsylvania and Northern Delaware.
