Super King started working with Landed in mid-2020, after finding existing platforms were not able to provide the volume and quality of candidates they needed. As an essential grocery business, Super King has experienced fast-growth throughout 2020. They needed a solution to keep up with demand as hiring was taking up too much time for managers.
Super King remained open throughout the pandemic. The influx of customer demand for groceries created staffing shortages, putting pressure on Hiring Managers to hire fast. On top of this, the onset of the pandemic created new positions that needed to be filled; demand for grocery delivery increased 10x and curbside pick-ups became essential.
The average grocery store has a 60% turnover. This means Super King’s Hiring Managers work around the clock to access a high volume of candidates to meet hiring needs, all while accounting for peak seasons.
Super King maintains a high bar for quality talent and needed a solution that could get them in contact with more candidates efficiently across all their locations. Whether it be cashiers, stockers, courtesy clerks, or store-level leadership, Hiring Managers were spending too many hours a week on multiple existing platforms without success. Candidates that were great on paper often didn’t reply or show up to interviews. Processes were manual and tedious, making it difficult to track progress across several hiring platforms. This is when Landed got in touch with Super King to streamline and accelerate their hiring practices.
