Farmer’s Building Supply employs around seventy five men and women in several stores around the Grants Pass area. Human Resources Manager Terri Selig has tried everything to find qualified candidates. She has put ads in the newspaper, tried local labor providers, local educational institutions, even on-line job boards.
Now Terri has only one place to turn – what she calls her “personal recruiter” – Dave Smith at WorkSource Oregon.
“WorkSource Oregon has helped because they have Dave working for them. His number is in my memory. Dave has made me feel like he is there just for our companies. In fact, he brought some more referrals today.”
Why has Dave made such a difference? First, Dave got to know Terri’s company, and her needs. Then Dave found Terri just the candidates she needed for positions like fork lift driver, cashier, sales, dry wall, janitor, feed store, yard loaders, and more.
“He’ll screen them to make sure that they meet our qualifications. He knows what we want. I don’t even have to tell him.”
