Program Overview

The goal of the New Graduate Program (NGP) is to invite New Grads with fresh perspectives and skills into our business and partner with them on a career development plan that lends to sustainable high impact performance. Post-secondary graduates are hired in a permanent, full-time capacity. For the first 18 months of your employment, you will be placed on an accelerated career development path which will provide you an opportunity to build a solid understanding of our business and our industry. Throughout this program you will be working with a variety of Bison's leaders who will contribute to your career development and will be assigned a specific leader to assume a mentoring role to guide your success. You will be challenged through approximately three job rotations (six to eight months each) in various roles across the organization.

All New Grad rotations and Learning Plans will be supported and monitored by the mentoring manager.

Assignments may include:
Operations Administration
Customer Service (it all starts with great customer service!)
Fleet Dispatch
Fleet Coordination

Personal Development:
With each rotation, New Grads go through a complete career development & performance review series. This allows you to spend time with your mentor at the beginning of each term to identify the skills you expect to learn, master and apply on the job. At the end of each rotation, you will have developed new skills and abilities and you will have a constructive understanding of all the attributes you bring to the organization.

After New Grads successfully complete the rotational program, successful participants will be placed into their "destination" career path based on business need, personal career goals and individual skills and knowledge demonstrated throughout the rotational program. As a result, the successful candidates are well underway with their career growth and a promising future at Bison!
