In addition, the FEC Career Centers have provided the opportunity for Maxi-Seal job candidates to take the WorkKeys job assessment, which helps to identify skill gaps that the candidate might have and areas in which OJT would prove useful. The FEC will continue to assist Maxi-Seal with their staffing, and also will assist their partner companies, Peterson Manufacturing and Mission Plastics, when they have hiring needs.
