TEMPE, Ariz. -- For Town & Country Food Stores, the days of job prospects filling out a paper application and hoping it gets to the right hiring manager are over.
The c-store chain, using hardware provided by Tempe, Ariz.-based Phoenix Kiosk Inc., has completed an initial deployment of more than 150 self-service kiosks to its various stores in western Texas and eastern New Mexico.
The units enable job applicants to submit an employment application via the Internet from the store in which they would like to work. The online application is then routed directly to a hiring manager, who can review the application online, according to the vendor. By moving the job application onto an Internet-enabled kiosk, the process can be accelerated with applicants hired more efficiently and without taking time away from the store personnel.
"We shopped around before starting this project and were unable to find any other kiosk vendor who could offer a product as well-built and attractive as Phoenix Kiosk's Sliivr, and certainly not at such a competitive price," Devin Bates, CIO of Town & Country Food Stores, said in a statement. "The kiosks look great in our stores, are attractive to potential applicants, and are built tough -- a must in our store environments."
"We are delighted to be a part of this new endeavor with Town & Country," added Alan Work, CEO of Phoenix Kiosk. "Combining an online application with an in-store, Internet-enabled kiosk has solved the challenge of keeping rural stores adequately staffed in an efficient manner."
Town & Country is a leading convenience store operator in west Texas and eastern New Mexico, with 168 stores, of which 161 operate under the Town & Country banner and seven under the Village Market banner. The company operates restaurants in 110 stores, primarily operating under the Country Cookin' name.
