POOLCORP stands as the world's premier distributor of swimming pool supplies, with an expansive operation across the United States.
Upon Samantha Garcia’s ascent to Talent Acquisition Manager a decade ago, POOLCORP's recruitment team, then a small unit of three, has grown exponentially. Despite the team's expansion to 12 members, they encountered significant challenges in managing a high volume of job applications and interviews efficiently.
Dealing predominantly with hourly non-exempt roles, the team faced an excess of applications, causing delays and inefficiencies in the initial screening process. Samantha Garcia articulated the core issue, “We were spending a lot of time weeding through resumes and not getting that interview,” stressing the urgency for a more buttoned up process.
The need for a new solution was palpable. Recruiters like Dakotah Eason, an MIT and Intern Recruiter for POOLCORP, faced the dual challenge of managing candidate engagement while attending career fairs, stating, “Qualifi helps me stay engaged with candidates while traveling... They can start on the interview process at a time that works best for them!”
Using Qualifi, POOLCORP’s Recruiting team of 12 now has the power to reach out to hundreds of candidates simultaneously, quickly surfacing those genuinely interested in the roles. As Jessica Holmes, a Field Recruiter, puts it, “Qualifi has been a great addition to my recruiting toolbelt. I can screen a larger pool of candidates in a shorter amount of time.”
The flexibility of Qualifi, allowing both recruiters and candidates to operate asynchronously, is a game-changer. Hannah Knight, another MIT and Intern Recruiter, observed, “Candidates have the flexibility to interview outside of business hours or when it's most convenient for them.” Fun Fact: 43% of Qualifi interviews take place outside of business hours, stressing the importance of asynchronous interviews that allow you to recruit while you sleep.
To sum it up, Samantha Garcia says, “Qualifi is a must-have tool because it saved our recruiters 79 working days within only three months… equivalent to 635 hours.”
Qualifi's implementation streamlined the screening process, allowing recruiters to concentrate on the most promising candidates. Beyond time savings, the platform empowered the recruitment team to focus on quality hiring and other critical projects, enhancing overall productivity.
