Labor Shortage

Star Distribution Systems is hiring, and there has never been a better time to work for us

If you’re an employer in today’s job market, you’ve got no choice but to get creative about finding workers. For supply chain businesses like ours at Star Distribution Systems, that’s especially true. We’ve got lots of work to do — the economy is booming again — but there just aren’t as many workers out there to do it. We know we’re far from alone. In fact, our clients are wrestling with the same thing.

The U.S. economy grew 6.4% in the first quarter of 2021, and economists are pointing toward even more robust growth in the year ahead. It’s clear the runway for a strong rebound from the pandemic-driven recession is in place. And the supply chain is right in the middle of it all. That’s exciting and encouraging. However, people aren’t going back to work at the same speed that the economy is ramping up. New jobs are being filled at about half the rate that experts expected. And that’s challenging. 

We’re going above and beyond to attract team members here at Star Distribution and to help them develop and grow every single day. We work with our team members to not only excel at their jobs — we want them to build long-lasting, exciting careers that endure. That means we place an emphasis on training and advancement so that every day at work represents another step toward the future for everyone here. We want to provide meaningful, rewarding work to as many people as possible, helping them find fulfillment in their careers while serving as productive, self-sustaining citizens. 

We take our roles as employers seriously, understanding the far-reaching benefits every job we fill has well beyond our company. We know how important it is to the health of our communities to help people develop new skills, grow as workers and individuals, and contribute to the economic health of our country. We also know that when we can find, acquire and keep great personnel, we can better take care of all our customers’ needs for next-day, last-mile and LTL deliveries throughout the state of Florida. 

Of course, a cornerstone of being a top employer is offering generous pay and benefits to our team members in all facets of our operation — from office positions to warehousing and truck driving jobs — and we do that. Our wages are competitive with anyone in our market. We have a variety of positions for every interest and experience level, including both part-time and full-time jobs. We have a comprehensive benefits package that includes health, vision and dental, as well as paid time off and paid holidays. And the promise of a safe and respectful work environment.

We’re posting our jobs everywhere we can find, and we’re aggressively using social media to connect with today’s workforce where they are. We’re also developing new talent through creative, impactful efforts such as the Future Career Academy, a local organization that prepares non-college-bound seniors for the workplace and helps them find sustainable careers with good wages right out of high school. Several Star team members started working at the company immediately after graduating from high school, with great results: Diligent efforts and a good work ethic have helped some rise through the ranks into managerial and administrative roles.
