Allan Myer's approach

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

Their 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.

Today, Allan Myers’ recruiting team gets new hires up and running more efficiently, giving them the ability to complete all required paperwork electronically before showing up on their first day.

Allan Myers also uses iCIMS’ Text Engagement to schedule interviews, remind candidates to complete applications, and send and confirm receipt of orientation information, all via text message. Incorporating text messaging into their recruiting strategy led to a 15-fold increase in completed applications.
