On February 28, the St. Louis Agency on Training and Employment’s downtown Missouri Career Center hosted a recruitment event for the St. Louis Parking Company and Ambassador Valet. They needed to fill 50 positions with a short turnaround, a much greater number than they typically handle, and turned to SLATE for assistance. SLATE promoted and coordinated this one-day special event with Jason Kelley, their Director of HR, Darren Egan, Clint Auxier, Brian Clark, Andrew Cummins and Eddie Pohrer.
Six staff from both SLATE’s Business Development and Adult Services departments prepared to handle the 59 job candidates who attended. All of the candidates were pre-screened, and 50 were provided with preliminary interviews; up to 23 have been offered positions contingent on a background check. The openings in question were for Valet Drivers and Garage Attendants/Cashiers.
“Our entire team was extremely impressed. The whole process exceeded my expectations. The quantity and quality of candidates was superb, and your facilities are outstanding,” Eddie Pohrer remarked on his experience with SLATE.
St. Louis Parking Company, which manages over 100 facilities, is a third generation, privately owned company celebrating 80 years in business. The process of screening and interviewing this many job candidates would have cost them at least a full day’s worth of staff time; instead St. Louis Parking Company and Ambassador Valet took advantage of the no-cost services available to all businesses here at SLATE.
