Department of Employment Services Assists in Pre-Screening Applicants (WASHINGTON, D.C.)

The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) today began testing 26 applicants for bus driver positions at the District’s Department of Employment Services (DOES) headquarters offices. Mayor Vincent C. Gray said this is the type of collaboration that is needed between D.C. government and local businesses to jump-start the city’s efforts to put more residents back to work under his:

One City ● One Hire initiative. “This is what it is all about,” said Mayor Gray. “WMATA needs bus drivers, and DOES identified individuals with experience and others who could be trained to do the job. DOES screened the applicants and provided their information to WMATA. The company’s executives and HR representatives are here today to test the candidates. The individuals who pass the examination will be a step closer to landing a job with WMATA. DOES is prepared to replicate this process with as many businesses as possible if it helps put people in the District back to work.”

One City ● One Hire has helped 335 D.C. residents find jobs since the initiative was announced in early September. So far, 172 businesses have enlisted as partners under the program.

 One City ● One Hire partner businesses include 7-Eleven, Ross Dress for Less, Safeway, Rite Aid, and Securitas. They have used DOES to notify job seekers about available positions and pre-screen the applicants. “We want and need more businesses to step up and work with us,” said Mayor Gray.

“Reports show that there are at least 50,000 jobs available in D.C. We want more of those jobs to go to District residents.”
