Marathon Petroleum Company

Workforce Challenge

In July 2010, Marathon Petroleum Company's Canton, Ohio, refinery needed to hire a class of 14 operators/technicians. According to Josh Horstman, Human Resource Consultant for Marathon, this class marked the first time the refinery used the company's online application process. The company needed help in recruiting applicants and making sure that potential employees were able to successfully apply through online system.

Workforce Solution

During the application period, The Employment Source, a local one-stop center, helped candidates apply who either did not have access to the Internet at home, or who were not comfortable with the online application process. "Though this was a major undertaking for our refinery, everything went smoothly due to the help of the recruiting staff at The Employment Source," stated Horstman. Over 1,000 applicants applied for the 14 open positions in the class.

Outcomes & Benefits

"The Employment Source was very responsive to our needs and requests," stated Horstman. "We were also able to utilize Project Hire for one of our new employees that helped to cover some of the costs to train this individual. We are very happy with our new employees, and look forward to working with The Employment Source again when we recruit our next class of operators/technicians," he added.
