NEW YORK -- Love’s Travel Stops & Country Stores, SAPP Bros. Travel Centers and Tesoro Petroleum recently chose Kronos Inc.’s selection and hiring solutions, the company reported.
Built upon client-specific success criteria based on industry, company and job requirements, behavioral assessments developed specifically for the hourly workforce, and easy-to-use behavioral interview tools, the Kronos solution is designed to consistently improve the quality of hires, according to the company.
Love’s Travel Stops & Country Stores recently selected the Kronos solution for effective selection and hiring to improve retention for its more than 200 locations in more than 30 states.
"For long term success, we picked Kronos to help us make a difference in our selection of best-fit candidates," Matt Thompson, director of recruiting at Love’s, said in a statement. "We expect to improve retention as well."
SAPP Bros. Travel Centers, operating 16 travel centers across eight states, noticed a surge in the number of candidates looking for work this year, which made the selection process more challenging.
"With the Kronos solution already implemented, we had access to superior selection tools to face the enhanced challenges this year," said Mary Eriksen, human resources/safety manager at SAPP Bros. Travel Centers. "We are receiving significantly higher numbers of applications this season representing a wide range of experience and qualifications. However, our mission is clear -- we need people who understand customer service -- but without Kronos, it would have been a much more difficult challenge to navigate through this extensive applicant pool to select and hire the best associates that can deliver superior service."
Tesoro Petroleum Corp. wanted a solution to reduce inefficiencies associated with a manual selection and hiring processes for its 275 stores, primarily in Alaska, California, Hawaii and several other Western states.
"Automating with the Kronos system has enabled job seekers to have access to 24/7 online applications," said Patrick Chalfin, retail human resource manager at Tesoro. "We quickly realized the benefits of the greater efficiency in our application management and hiring process with Kronos. Also, an easy hiring tool that helps to select and hire only the best available candidates is an added bonus."
