Aries solution: We received over 300 resumes from candidates interested in the position to maintain an ongoing pipeline to meet the on demand needs of our client. Candidates were screened via the criteria established by our client; experience, stability of work history, commitment to the program, strong references and successful completion of a background test.
Result: Aries conducted over 200 face to face interviews to insure proper screening of all applicants. 120 candidates were eventually interviewed by our client after passing all phases of the interview process. 95 of these candidates were hired, an 80% interview to hire ratio. Turnover among this group of Aries temporary associates was only 10%. The ability of Aries to recruit the right group of assemblers, technicians and material handlers led to our client successfully increasing production by 400%.
