City Line reportedly processes approximately 2,500 employment applications per year. Prior to nowHIRE, the company used a paper-based application process. Each applicant provided differing information, which made the process inconsistent. Additionally, storing paper applications and resumes created a space problem. The new automated system streamlines and standardizes the hiring process by allowing applicants to complete an application online or through the use of a kiosk set up in City Line’s lobby.
“Now I can recall applications at the click of a button and search for applicants in the database without having to camp out at a file cabinet,” said Erica Blackmon, the distributor’s recruiter.
The automated system provides all necessary applicant tracking components, including pre-screening and qualifying, an advanced resume database and online background checks. It also includes a printable completed application in PDF format, which applicants sign off on for accuracy.
