Diversity: Equal Employment Opportunity and Affirmative Action Plan

It is the policy of AIT Worldwide Logistics to not discriminate against any employee or applicant for employment, and to take affirmative action to employ and to advance in employment all persons regardless of their status, and to base all employment decisions only on valid job requirements. 

This policy applies to all employment actions, including but not limited to recruitment, hiring, upgrading, promotion, transfer, demotion, layoff, recall, termination, rates of pay or other forms of compensation and selection for training, including apprenticeship, at all levels of employment.

Employees of and applicants to AIT will not be subject to harassment, intimidation, threats, coercion, or discrimination because they have engaged or may engage in filing a complaint, assisting in a review, investigation, or hearing or have otherwise sought to obtain their legal rights related to any federal, state, or local law regarding EEO for minorities, females, qualified individuals with disabilities, or qualified protected veterans.

AIT is committed to the principles of Affirmative Action and Equal Employment Opportunity. In order to ensure dissemination and implementation of equal employment opportunity and affirmative action throughout all levels of the company, the Director of Human Resources has been appointed as the Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Director for AIT. One of the EEO Director's duties will be to establish and maintain an internal audit and reporting system to allow for effective measurement of our company's programs.

To uphold our company’s policy regarding Affirmative Action and Equal Employment Opportunity, AIT has developed a written Affirmative Action Program which sets forth the policies, practices and procedures which AIT is committed to applying in order to ensure that its policy of non-discrimination and affirmative action is accomplished. This Affirmative Action Program is available for inspection by any employee or applicant for employment upon request, during normal business hours, in the Human Resources Department.

    I have been working at AIT Worldwide Logistics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    AIT continues to grow and acquire some big name customers. They had a record year of performance which is wonderful. The organization has been around for 30+ years and senior management is open and embraces changing for the better as we continue to scale the organization. Great opportunity for someone looking to come in and recommend changes, be a part of process improvements and innovation in a company that is seeking growth. Very passionate and caring CEO which is nice to see.

    Cons

    Opportunity to improve their benefit package, 401k match and continued development of their employees. They offer tuition assistance but would like to see further development programs for staff

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. Be open to change. Look at keeping up being competitive in the market on pay and benefits. Excited to be part of the growth!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at AIT Worldwide Logistics (Itasca, IL) in January 2011.

    Interview

    First was a phone interview with an HR employee. Lasted about 30 minutes, basic questions. Once received call back, set up an in-person review with the same HR person who conducted the phone interview plus the director of the department. This lasted about an hour and asked a lot of the same questions as the phone interview just allowing the director to chime in where they want.

    Interview Questions
