Corra Group Ramps Up Employment Screening to Commercial Trucking Firms as Hiring Gains After a Downturn

El Segundo, Ca (PRWEB) June 09, 2015

Corra Group is once again ramping up its efforts to assist commercial trucking and transportation compliance requirements as the industry overall shows signs of rebounding after months of a decline. The renewed efforts include providing background checks for new drivers as well as offering its trucking package services for all the Department of Transportation Compliance Mandates.

According to the April online issue of Journal of Commerce, the trucking industry had been showing a dramatic decline in hiring, said Corra Group Co-Founder, Nick Gustavson. The industry lost some 6,700 jobs in March but recovered more than a quarter of them in April. In all, hiring in the trucking industry had doubled from 2013 through 2014, going from about 25 thousand jobs to some 46 thousand jobs. This has meant significant competition in the job market, making it tough to find good drivers.

Gustavson pointed out that trucking companies not only need drivers, but they need good drivers. He noted they need drivers with decent safety records, have no substance abuse issues, who will meet DOT compliance standards, and who will show up for the job.

This is where Corra Group comes in, said Gustavson. As part of our updates in offering background checks to trucking companies, we are providing Commercial Motor Vehicle Driving Reports from every state in the union. The new drivers license not only include, violations, DUIs, accidents and the like, but also can tell you whether your driver is current with his Medical Certification. The Medical Certification information on the driving record is of major value to employers in this industry.

Corra Group has also expanded its DOT drug testing capabilities and offers PSP Reports, which are instrumental in detailing a drivers highway safety records. We offer DOT Compliant Employment Verifications, a search that many employers find difficult and unwieldy when they try to do it in-house.

Gustavson took note of the JOC article where it intimates stiff competition in finding qualified truck drivers. He cautioned how its clients should review carefully all background checks returned by Corra Group, lest in their haste they hire the wrong candidate for the job.

Its a tough hiring market out there, said Gustavson. And it looks like it is about to get tougher. But if you hire precipitously you can make a serious mistake and live to regret it. At Corra Group, we hear a good many horror stories related to the trucking industry. Which is but one of the reasons we are constantly sourcing for new solutions that will make the hiring process go as smoothly as possible.

Los Angeles Movies in the Park Series Eat|See|Hear Presents Outdoor Screening of The Grand Budapest Hotel

Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) June 09, 2015

Eat|See|Hear, Los Angeles’ premier outdoor movie in the park, food truck and live music event series, will be in Griffith Park on Saturday, June 13, to showcase the award-winning film, The Grand Budapest Hotel. This event will be held at the South Lawn of the Autry National Center, located at 4700 Western Heritage Way. Showtime is at 8:30 p.m.

Set between the first and second World Wars, The Grand Budapest Hotel recounts the adventures of Gustave H., a legendary concierge at a famous hotel from the fictional Republic of Zubrowka, and Zero Moustafa, the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend. The story involves the theft and recovery of a priceless Renaissance painting and the battle for an enormous family fortuneall against the backdrop of a dramatically-changing continent. Directed by Wes Anderson, the star-studded cast includes Ralph Fiennes, F. Murray Abraham and Mathieu Amalric.

Doors open at 5:30 p.m. to allow movie goers plenty of time to get settled before the movie starts. Since this venue is a grassy lawn, movie goers should bring pillows, cushions and blankets to sit on during the show. Low beach chairs are also allowed for seating, but should be short-legged (no more than 6 inches off the ground).

If you have a tall chair, like a lawn chair or camping style chair more than 6 inches off the ground, you will be required to sit outside the center of the venue, which is marked with signs on both the left and right side of the venue, notes Sharon Sperber, co-owner of Eat|See|Hear.

At 7:30 pm, the LA-based chillwave band, Mansions on the Moon, will take the stage, performing their melodic amalgamation of soft rock and dream pop. The band debuted in 2010 with vocalist Ted Wendler playing the guitar, Ben Hazlegrove at the keyboard, Lane Shaw at the drums and Jeff Maccora at bass. Since then the group has released several albums, and has been selected as one of New Music Seminars Top 100 Artists on the Verge for 2015. You can hear their song Full Moon in this Eat|See|Hear video https://youtu.be/N-hnH3zUQR0.

Plenty of food trucks will be on hand during the evening, offering a variety of snack foods and meals. The lineup includes Belly Bombz, Brasil Kiss, Canvas Foods, Coolhaus, Slanging Corea, Slummin Gourmet, Son of a Bun, Steamy Bun and more. Food trucks will be open for business at 5:30 p.m.

Movie patrons can park for free in the Los Angeles Zoo parking lot, which is across the street from the Autry. From there, it is just a short walk to the South Lawn. For people who may be biking in, there are racks for parking bicycles for free as well.

Tickets can be purchased at the door or in advance. Advance general admission tickets are $ 12 each for adults ($ 14 at the door), $ 8 for children under 12 years old, and free for children 5 and under.

Buying your tickets in advance is the way to go, because you will automatically be entered to win a R/T flight to Auckland, courtesy of Air New Zealand, advises Sperber.

In addition to general admission tickets, a limited number of Air New Zealand Fashionably Late passes are available for purchase in advance at the Eventbrite website, granting seating in a reserved area, regardless of arrival time.

As is true for every Eat|See|Hear event, movie-goers are welcome to bring their canine companions with them to the event. Dog owners are asked to bring water and water bowls, dog treats, and waste bags to keep their pets happy during the show and clean up after them.
