    Erickson's Oil Sees 41 Percent Turnover Reduction

    Convenience store operator attributes success to new hiring management system.

    TROY, Mich. -- Erickson Oil made a decision to expand its agreement with JobApp Network for its Web and IVR-based hiring solution for high-volume and hourly employers to include all 65 locations after a very successful initial rollout.

    The company’s wholly owned subsidiary, Freedom Valu Center convenience stores, consists of 65 privately held, family-owned stores located in Minnesota, Wisconsin, South Dakota and Michigan, and during the initial six-month rollout at 40 locations, Freedom Valu stores experienced a 41 percent reduction in turnover. At the 25 stores that weren’t included in the initial rollout, employee turnover slightly increased during the same period.

    "We are extremely excited about the results of the initial roll-out and are looking forward to a strong partnership that will allow us to utilize the efficiencies offered by JobApp within all Freedom Valu stores. The ability for managers to easily view and sort only qualified applicants has proven to be a real time-saver for our store managers. JobApp has also allowed us to standardize our hiring practices at these locations," said Pat Zik, Human Resources coordinator for Erickson Oil/Freedom Valu.

    Erickson Oil selected JobApp Network to reduce turnover and improve both the customer and employee experience and due to the ease of set-up and low cost of implementation. The company also wanted a single partner that would be able to deliver fully integrated assessments, background checks, and employee tax credit screening and processing.

    JobApp Network provides a complete phone and web-based hiring solution for Freedom Valu. By utilizing JobApp, Freedom Valu is able to improve its competitive hiring advantages, screen and score applicants 24/7 by web and phone and streamline its background check and onboarding processes.
