Allan Myers' approach

Allan Myers’ employees pride themselves on being able to tackle any job. But when it came to building its own pipeline of talent, the company was struggling to break ground.

The recruiting team struggled to hire high volumes of hourly craft professionals (CDL drivers, equipment operators, and carpenters), as well as salaried office professionals and construction management.

Without an applicant tracking system the recruiting team found themselves playing phone tag with candidates and inundated with incomplete applications on their career site.

iCIMS has completely transformed the way we recruit and onboard candidates. It’s now our one-stop-shop to view new applications and keep track of past candidates to reach out to later.
