-- Select International processed 6,000 online applications for GE’s Appliance Park facility on the morning of September 28, fulfilling its quota in under an hour. GE began accepting applications for the Louisville, Kentucky plant at 6:30 a.m. and received its limit by 7:20 a.m., averaging 120 applications a minute.
The company had previously communicated that it would take applications through 4 p.m. on Friday, September 30, or until 6,000 applications were received.
To process this large volume of applications, GE utilized EZ App®, Select International’
s automated application tool. Designed to handle large volumes of candidates, EZ App® automatically determines which candidates qualify for the next step in the hiring process.
“This scenario illustrates the importance of using an efficient and consistent screening tool,” said Brian Dishman, Select International Senior Consultant. “GE’
s hiring managers saved significant hours of processing and scheduling, and they will ultimately be able to bring the best candidates on-board sooner.”
The Appliance Park facility currently employs approximately 4,000 workers, and GE will add 480 new factory positions, the first of which will begin work in February 2012.About Select International
