A NewHire Case Study

Imagine the chaos you would encounter if every regional and site manager in your food service management firm could order their own ingredients from any source they chose. Duplicate product, missing product, variable quality and no profit would be the the result, right? Food service providers strive to create, implement and monitor systems to avoid the chaos of everyone “doing their own thing.”

Yet when it comes to hiring staff, many food service management companies force managers to “do their own thing.” This happens when hiring managers are told to run an ad, screen, interview, hire and on-board people without support or structure from the organization.

Quest Food Management Services was faced with similar issues when they turned to NewHire for help. From candidate chaos, Quest organized their recruiting so that 3,336 people applied to 116 jobs titles, ranging from Food Service Worker to Human Resources Director, and Lead Line Cook to Vice President of Operations. Now everyone uses the same system and the same process.

Recruitment ad purchases were streamlined and measured for effectiveness. Managers were the given tools they needed to recruit talent and are now held accountable for the results.

As Quest Food Management Services of Lombard, IL has discovered, NewHire’s Advantage recruitment solution is an ideal fit for a rapidly growing food service management company. For over a year, Quest has successfully used NewHire’s Advantage service to continually recruit across the region and across the company’s diverse range of open positions. Advantage is not only the regional management team’s recruitment software, housing candidate’s applications, sorting out those who match the company’s qualifications, and allowing Quest to easily tag, track and share candidates. More importantly, Advantage is the team’s recruitment process, complete with expert help as needed.

NewHire’s Advantage service is well suited to the good, bad and the ugly of food service management recruitment. That’s true not only for the seasonally-driven K-12 market, but for food service management companies (FSMCs) serving higher education, business and industry, healthcare, senior and corrections clients. As a FSMC, you need to hire quickly, for many different job titles and dozens of positions, in a short time frame. If you are working in the education market, you may need to hire again after the first school or semester break, to recover from mid-year attrition. You need to hire for a wide range of positions: regional management and sales roles, corporate positions, food service directors and perhaps most importantly, the food service workers who interact daily with your clients.

Here are just a few of the ways NewHire’s Advantage can organize food service recruitment into one ongoing process for all of your job titles, positions, regions and client facilities.

No more unqualified resumes. And no more stacks of any resumes.

Our powerful screening tools help you easily identify candidates who match the qualifications you define for each job. NewHire saves you hours of time spent reviewing unqualified resumes, and with custom applications and screening questions for each job title, allows you to instantly sort candidates based on the qualifications you consider most important, so you’ll never have to print another stack of resumes for review. You can tag and track candidates, make notes, and share candidates with other users right in the software.

What sets your company apart – right there in your ad.

We’ll work with you to articulate what differentiates your jobs and your company from others in the business, and talk with you to clearly understand what makes your FSMC a great place to work. Then we will build that great company image – that Employee Value Proposition that makes your jobs great opportunities – right into NewHire, so it’s front and center for every applicant.

Client service and specialized expertise just like you give to your clients.

We know that food service management providers know and value good client service and the coaching and guidance that only experts can provide. We do, too. When you choose Advantage, you’ll be assigned to a recruiting professional who will work with you throughout the hiring process. We will also provide training for your entire HR team, and additional phone support, on-demand, when you need it.

Quest Food Management Services in Lombard, IL recently utilized NewHire Professional services to hire for their essential Vice President of Operations role. The NewHire Professional service includes NewHire creating the customized advertisement and the screening questions, filtering for qualified candidates, conducting the initial phone screening of the applicants, and handling all of the interview set up and subsequent process follow-up.  This full service model was right for Quest’s recruiting efforts for the Vice President position because it assigns the bulk of the work to NewHire, while providing a consistent and dedicated partnership between NewHire and the client.

Our work with Quest’s President Nick Saccaro before the advertising campaign was created was strategic, focused and comprehensive. We spoke with Nick to establish a clear understanding of the Vice President of Operations role, as well as the type of individual that would be best suited to the role, and to the corporate culture. Quest was hiring for an excellent opportunity that met or exceeded similar Full Service NewHire Testimonialpositions in the industry and it was critical to highlight the unique attributes of the role. Once these priorities were established, we were able to craft an advertisement and application questions that targeted the type of high level candidates who would succeed in the role. As a result of the thorough preparation done at the start of the process, the position received a total of 233 applicants, allowing Nick the opportunity to speak to a variety of candidates.

The NewHire Professional service is well-suited to executives who are short on time or experience to do the bulk of the recruiting work themselves but it is even better suited for those who can make the time to be involved and are committed to the recruitment process as a whole, especially for key positions.  Despite Nick’s extremely busy schedule, he was dedicated to the process and focused on our continuously driving the process forward. He spent time searching through the NewHire software to identify candidates, utilizing the sort and search filter to save time, then he prioritized interviews in his schedule, and gave quick feedback about candidates. As a result, Nick spoke to the candidates that he wanted to speak with, and made the decision to hire within 4 months of advertising.

The NewHire Professional service is not a quick fix solution, and it should not be. We understand the immense need for the right person in key roles. NewHire Professional is for those who are looking for a supportive partner who will be there during all phases of this significant search.
