Grocery Outlet (GO) is a chain of 340+ supermarkets that offers discounted, overstocked, and closeout products from name brand and private label suppliers.
GO Ventura started working with Landed in mid-2020 after experiencing challenges with sourcing high-quality candidates quickly enough. Experiencing rapid growth, GO needed a time-efficient way to access a higher volume of A+ candidates, and other recruiting platforms weren’t cutting it.
5 hires in first couple weeks in Ventura store
50% interviewed are hired
4X fewer candidate interview no-shows
10+ hours saved on hiring each week
As a high-volume business, GO always has hiring needs for front-of-house and back-of-house roles like cashiers and stockers to ensure a clean shopping environment and top-notch customer service. This means hiring hard- workers who have great attitudes and can work in a fast-paced environment.
As the Owner/Operator, Eric was not receiving enough high-quality candidates and was spending excessive time on hiring. This took time away from improving supermarket operational excellence. Existing platforms weren’t cutting it. Only 25% of people showed up for interviews after having to screen hundreds of resumes, wasting Eric’s time and giving him even more manual work.
GO needed a solution to source and vet candidates quickly to fill the talent pipeline. That’s when Landed got in touch with GO.
50% of Interviewed Candidates are Hired
95% Matching Accuracy – Using Technology to Measure 100+ Data Points
3x Quality Improvement in Applications for Hard-to-Fill FOH/BOH Positions
Landed’s intelligent matching™ ensures hiring managers connect with top candidates who suit their needs.
Within 1 week on our platform, we screened thousands of applicants to provide GO Ventura with 96 vetted matches.
We don’t rely on resumes. Resumes alone are not sufficient in assessing candidates on what Eric wanted: great customer service, hard-working attitude, and attention to detail.
Rather, Landed candidates submit four 15 second videos answering introductory questions. Landed intelligent matching™ then assesses candidate videos on 100+ data points to accurately match candidates. This eliminated dozens of hours of work for Eric.
With Landed, 85% of Candidates Show Up to Interviews
4X more Landed Candidates Show Up for Interviews
Landed sends calendar invites to candidates and an automated confirmation once the interview has been scheduled. We also automatically send 1-day prior and day-of reminders to candidates via push notifications, email, and SMS. This helped Eric save hours of time organizing interviews and improved the rate of interview attendance to 4X more than existing platforms.
