Hire by Google, enables Trader Interactive to grow the company while saving the recruiting team time.
Headquartered in Norfolk, VA, Trader Interactive provides advertising and digital services to the powersports, recreational vehicle, commercial truck and equipment industries. Trader had more than 300 employees at the end of 2017, and is planning to add another 65 in 2018.
Hiring the right people is pivotal to the company’s success but the small recruiting team found itself stretched because the tools they were using could not keep up. The applicant tracking system (ATS) in place felt clunky and time consuming, and as a result recruiters were the only people at the company who could figure out how to use it.
Instead of sourcing candidates and building relationships with them, the recruiters were spending a ton of time tracking down hiring managers and interviewers to get feedback on candidates, and even more time compiling that feedback.
