Utilimaster job fair drive-thru

A job applicant speaks with a member of the Utilimaster HR staff during a drive-thru job fair in Bristol on Wednesday.

BRISTOL — The coronavirus has created many limitations and put millions of Americans out of a job. At the truck manufacturer Utilimaster, where the demand for delivery trucks means there is plenty of work to do, the job application process looks a little different than usual this summer.

The company needs more than 100 additional people and decided to get them through a job fair held Wednesday. But at this particular event, candidates could stay in their vehicles while learning about the job, filling out an application and interviewing.
