Our People

PeopleHilton Haulage employs over 300 staff, balancing fluctuating seasonal demands with a core group of employees who ensure the exacting standards of the company are consistently maintained. Operational staff, alongside relevant supervisory and management staff, are based on specific sites, with a head office operation (strategy, finance and human resources) located in Washdyke, Timaru.

Our dedicated human resources team focuses on best practice employment processes as well as performance and development initiatives and strategies.

Our recruitment processes are heavily regimented to ensure a robust entry into the organisation. Selection activities include an application form process, formal interview, practical in-cab driving assessment, safety assessment, reference checking and pre-employment medical and drug testing, while a thorough induction and hands-on training is put in place for all new recruits.

These processes enable us to secure high calibre, professional and customer-focused employees. We place a great amount of emphasis on our people and the team culture in order to provide the very best of service to our diverse client base.
