Aim Mechanic and Family Venture to Disney World

Aim Mechanic Robert Carlson and his family enjoyed a week-long, all-expenses-paid trip to the happiest place on Earth—Walt Disney World!

Mr. Carlson’s name was drawn for the Disney trip as part of a recruiting contest held last summer. The rules were simple: For every CDL driver or diesel mechanic who was referred to Aim and hired, Aim employees earned an entry into a drawing for the vacation. Plus, every referrer collected a whopping $2,000 referral bonus.

In March, Robert, who joined Aim’s Phoenix, AZ, Hensley maintenance team in 2020, and his family jetted off from Arizona to Florida for a week’s worth of fun and relaxation. Robert beat out five other employees who helped recruit a driver or technician that summer during the contest.

Six total new-hires might not seem like much, especially to industry outsiders. But as insiders will attest: There’s no end in sight for the worsening driver and mechanic shortages, and so the addition of even a single driver or mechanic is a huge win. But six? That’s astronomical.

“First, I want to congratulate Robert and his family for winning the trip to Disney World and to thank him for supporting Aim’s recruitment efforts,” Aim’s Chief Human Resources Officer, Patty Durkin, said. “His and everyone’s contributions to bring top-quality candidates to Aim makes a huge difference for us and our valued customers.”

“Aim is filled with great people,” Durkin added, “and we know that great people know great people, which is why we’re so fortunate to be able run these contests, allowing us to harness the collective effort of the entire Aim team to help us fill open driver and mechanic positions.”

Right now, Aim’s referral bonus remains at $2,000 for every driver or mechanic who is referred, hired and works 30 days. On top of that, Aim is holding quarterly drawings for an additional $1,000. Just like the Disney trip contest, participants earn an entry for every referral.

But it doesn’t end there. Now through September 30, referrals will also net entries into a Dream Vacation raffle worth $7,500. The winner will be selected at random on November 22.

“If you know someone looking for a career with a great culture, endless opportunities and fantastic pay and benefits, please encourage them to apply at,” Aim’s Director of Recruiting, Suzy Baer, said. “Be sure to have them add your name as the referring employee so you can collect your bonus and get one step closer to that dream vacation!”
