Bookmark this category
Troy, Mich. — February 24, 2010 — TravelCenters of America (TA), the Fortune 500 operator of industry leading national travel center brands, TA and Petro, implemented JobApp’s talent acquisition platform in 2008. Their goal was to improve hiring results across their 200 locations, reduce turnover and improve customer service.

Committed to a safe and drug-free workplace, TA also implemented JobApp’s one-click integrated background screening solution. To slash administrative costs, JobApp has also integrated with TA’s implementation of PeopleSoft to streamline HR and payroll processes and eliminate duplicate data entry.

“After merely 6 months of utilizing JobApp across 20% of our largest locations nationally we were able to statistically confirm that the JobApp process reduced 21-day termination ratios by over 40%. For our leadership team, it was pretty clear that the JobApp process was in fact significantly reducing what I would call hiring issues,” stated TA Vice President of Human Resources, Bruce Sebera.

In contrast to the vast majority of players involved with talent acquisition technology and content, JobApp’s solution was built specifically for the radically different needs of decentralized and often predominantly hourly or field-based hiring organizations.

According to Tom Maren, Director of Recruiting, “JobApp has transformed our hiring culture, we have been able to better control the hiring process across the country and improve new employee performance and retention.” Maren added that, “JobApp is unusual among HR technology vendors in that the product performs exactly like they say it will in their sales presentations.”
