Who we are looking for

Preferred skills

FAST TRACK APPRENTICESHIP

HCSG’s FastTrack program is the industry’s only apprenticeship program for crane technicians. Candidates that are accepted into the program will be removed from the field for six months to undergo intense training in all aspects of overhead crane inspection and repair.

Preferred qualifications

TECHNICAL TRAINING

Better trained technicians are SAFER technicians

HCSG operates the industry’s only dedicated trade school for overhead crane technicians. We discovered many years ago that there are plenty of highly trained mechanics and electricians out there, but insufficient cross training to address the varying aspects of crane repair. Training at HCSG is not limited only to the classroom. We have a 10,000 sf training facility, complete with a 60 ton double girder bridge crane and training labs in small hoist repair, hydraulics, pneumatics, eddy currents, static stepless, ac/dc controls, and variable frequency.

What I like about the company

They're a good company with good people. The pay is fair and they do what they can to work wiwth you on personal requests. I have worked hard and done well and they have given me raises and moved me up. I feel like I have a career here and that my skills are appreciated and valued.

What I dislike about the company

I don't love the location of the office, but it's not a bid deal. I also would prefer if the tech trucks were extended cab.
