Convenience Store Operator GasAmerica Focuses on Business Impact of Hiring Quality Employees

Bloomfield Hills, Michigan — May 18, 2011 — Indiana-based, convenience store chain, GasAmerica, knows that the quality of employees has a ripple effect across the entire business. To improve their hiring process, GasAmerica turned to JobApp Network’s automated hiring management solution for C-Stores last summer. They implemented a phased approach and have now completed rolling the solution out across all 86 locations.

With hiring on the upswing following C-store sales growth of 4.4% in 2010, as reported by NACS, – and amid continued optimism for 2011 – the people that service customers are the key to continued growth.

GasAmerica believes hiring success starts with JobApp making it easy for people to apply 24×7. “There is competition for applicants. By allowing people to apply from their phone or the web, we make it easier to apply with us — rather than our competitors,” stated Jim Haddock, COO of GasAmerica. After building the talent pool, they are able to identify the top 20% of their applicants immediately. “This simple-to-use prescreening ensures that we are only interviewing candidates that meet our requirements and can excel in the stores,” added Haddock.

At the store level, the general managers are getting ahead of the hiring curve. “Before JobApp it was hard to catch-up on hiring. Our store is now completely staffed with better than ever employees and if someone leaves, we have a queue of prescreened candidates to call,” stated Corey Barry, store manager of a location in Greenfield, IN.

GasAmerica has plenty of opportunities to expand the impact that automation can have on their operations. JobApp also offers integrated background checks and a paperless onboarding solution. It includes seamlessly integrated electronic I-9 management with over 150 built-in compliance rules, optional E-Verify integration, electronic forms management, Work Opportunity Tax Credit forms management and EEO/OFCCP Reporting, as well as payroll/HRIS integration.
