Meet Michelle

Workforce Challenge

Michelle Carter, V.P. of the Huck Group, a retail fixtures manufacturing company with a plant in Harrison, Ohio, needed to do some quick staffing up. "Thanks to increased work orders, Huck was looking to add more than 30 people in Harrison, from entry level positions to machine operators to supervisors and managers", says Carter. The plant in Harrison produces metal store fixtures and displays, and now employs more than 117 people.

Workforce Solution

Through the One-Stop referrals at the Ohio Means Jobs website, Carter contacted The Business Services team at the SuperJobs Center, for help in setting up a hiring event. The SuperJobs Center sent out flyers on the event to various SuperJobs partners. Other Business Services reps sent out e-mail blasts to their customers. The event also was posted on the Ohio Means Jobs and SuperJobs websites as well. “The Business Services Team helped identify qualified applicants,” says Carter. About 60 people showed up for the hiring event. Members of the Business Services team helped Carter with pre-screening of candidates. They handed out applications and took care of various kinds of paperwork, allowing Carter to focus on interviewing candidates.

Outcomes & Benefits

From the pool of 60 candidates, Carter hired 39 people. SuperJobs has made a convert out of Carter, who says she will use its services in the future. “The professionalism of the Business Services Team was exceptional,” says Carter. “They geared up in a short time to meet our needs and ensure that the Huck Group could make qualified hires for our plant in Harrison.”
