Chopsticks or Fork? LineHire



linehireI love Pad Thai, and pretty much anything that comes out of an Asian kitchen!  Apparently lots of folks like what’s coming out of Mama Fu’s Asian House.  This fast Asian restaurant is opening up new locations faster than you can say ‘egg roll’!  When you’re the HR manager for this growing business, trying to keep so many ‘plates spinning’, what do you do? You look for recruiting tools to help.  Specifically ones that fit within your existing recruiting processes, are easy to learn and use and and that make you more efficient. This is what Sarah Shanklin, Mama Fu’s Human Resources Director did.

Sarah needed help in finding talented General Managers and Assistant General Managers to join her team. These individuals form the backbone of every great restaurant and good ones aren’t that easy to find. Like hiring for most roles, there is significant time invested, researching, contacting, qualifying candidates just to get them  to the point of interview. Not able to clone herself, Sarah decided to let LineHire do those functions for her.  That is, deliver interview-ready candidates via its “part technology, part human” platform.  Running a pilot hiring campaign with LineHire in October, 2015.  To her delight, LineHire delivered her several qualified, interested and available candidates right to her ‘kitchen door’ that were ready to interview. She in-turn set-up phone screens and in-person interviews after by-passing the time-consuming research tasks.  This worked out so well that Mama Fu’s is continuing its use of LineHire for additional locations.

Here’s a quick 2 minute video to walk you through how LineHire works.

I hope that Mama Fu’s makes it to North Carolina soon.  My chopsticks are ready!
