At KBC Staffing, we thoroughly enjoy the challenge of working with so many different enterprises. One of our favorite projects involved filling a hard-to-place warehouse & distribution role.
Our client was operating six successful locations but needed a new inventory control manager immediately. Day to day operations were being impacted so it was critical that this position was filled as so soon as possible.
Our warehouse recruiter specialist met with the leadership team to develop a position profile. Objectives were identified and key qualities, skills and experience were discussed. We also talked about how a new person would integrate with existing staff.
From our tracking roster, we contacted eight candidates who appeared to be qualified and were interested. We conducted in depth, face to face interviews and culled the list to three. After a series of client interviews, a new inventory control manager, who not only had the requisite skills but also had a background in the industry, was hired.
After looking for a inventory control manager for quite some time without success, we were starting to panic. Fortunately, KBC Staffing came up with the perfect solution. After meeting with their warehouse recruiter, we had the position filled within two weeks.
