Service Technician Training Program for Veterans
Program launching Early 2018
Workforce Opportunity Services (WOS) and United Rentals are looking to hire motivated Veterans with service past September 11, 2001 that have an interest in mechanics as Service Technicians.
The training is comprised of 5 weeks of classroom instruction taught by Universal Technical Institute (UTI) and WOS, followed by 4 weeks of United Rentals specific on the job training consisting of equipment training and operation certification. Classes are taught in the Dallas/Fort Worth and Atlanta areas.
WOS will provide lodging for candidates who reside outside of the Dallas/Fort Worth and Atlanta areas.
Candidates are first asked to fill job vacancies in hard to fill locations. If those locations are no longer available or unworkable, you are eligible to apply for any United Rentals vacancy within North America.
Starting salaries range from $14-$19/hour for Tech 1/Tech 2 positions depending on location and mechanical aptitude. Higher level tech positions are available depending on experience.
Admission to the program is highly competitive.
Those selected for training and employment will receive paid training ($500/week stipend) prior to working at United Rentals.
There is no cost to participate. This program will NOT touch any GI Bill you may have.
