Republic Services - INGLEWOOD

Workforce History:

Republic Services, Inc., incorporated in 1996, is the second largest provider of services in the domestic non-hazardous solid waste industry. Through its subsidiaries, Republic strives to safely and sustainably provide reliable non-hazardous solid waste and recycling services for commercial, industrial, municipal and residential customers.

SBWIB Partnership:

For the last three years, Republic Services has partnered with the South Bay Workforce Investment Board’s, Youth Services Department, to shore up teenagers looking to enter the work place. This partnership and commitment to local area youth, has provided, hands-on training in the specific area of Advance Manufacturing Welding.

Most recently, 13 students from local schools were granted the opportunity to pair up with an experienced Republic Services Welder. As a work-experience component to the Bridge-to-Manufacturing program, these students learned how workers repaired metal containers through welding and on through the process of painting and adding fresh decals to recirculate for customer use.

Outcome and Benefits:

As a result of the training, several students were given the opportunity to learn, while they earned, for a total of 160-200 hours, priming them for possible entry into the field.

For the past several years, Republic Services has utilized the many recruitment and business services from the SBWIB’s Inglewood One-Stop Center to reach their possible candidate pool. The One-Stop also prescreens many candidates for Republic’s available positions and has established several On-the-Job Training contracts as a result and has held positive recruitments to meet their hiring needs.
