Empire Paratransit is Hiring on Merlin in NYC!

This month, the Merlin Job Search Team had the pleasure of visiting Empire Paratransit Corp., located in East Brooklyn and a valuable member of Merlin’s NYC Employer Network.

Empire Paratransit provides door to door transportation services for people with disabilities within the greater NYC area.

Business is Growing and Hiring Fast

During our visit, we met with John Costa, Manager at Empire Paratransit, who detailed how much the business has grown since its early days. When he joined 9 years ago, the company had just 75 employees. But year over year, the business expanded steadily and now staffs over 400 drivers, dispatchers and managers.

Despite such rapid growth, John doesn’t foresee the company slowing down anytime soon – he plans to hire as many as 60 drivers and dispatchers over the next few months and is constantly looking to add to his team. See details below about how to apply to Empire Paratransit!

John described that prior to joining the Merlin network, filling the demand for drivers and dispatchers was difficult. Much of the hiring occurred through word of mouth or newspaper ads. Now he can access the Merlin App from anywhere, where he seamlessly tracks applicants and can get in touch with interview candidates with just a tap.

Employee Culture

The business’ size has not limited Empire Paratransit’s emphasis on culture. The team continues to celebrate hard work by hosting driver appreciation days, contests and raffles. John’s favorite event, and the one team-members look forward to the most is the annual BBQ – a fun treat and opportunity for people to connect across the organization.

Thank You

Merlin wants to thank Empire Paratransit for the service they provide to the NYC community. We look forward to continuing to work together to obtain the best possible talent for their business!
