Workforce Challenge

Ashley Furniture Homestores contacted the Southeast LA-Crenshaw WorkSource Center for assistance identifying candidates to fill open positions as Sales Managers, Sales Associates and Customer Service Representatives. The company was hoping for 100 candidates to consider for interviews.

Workforce Solution

WorkSource Center staff offered to host a recruiting event at the WorkSource Center on March 20, 2014, and Ashley Furniture accepted. The Center promoted the event to current job seekers and unemployed workers who were interested in retail positions or careers.

Outcomes & Benefits

The recruiting fair was a success. Ninety-one individuals showed up to interview and twelve of the applicants received job offers after passing background and drug screenings. Ashley Furniture was grateful for the assistance received and sent the Center a letter of appreciation. They also are planning another recruiting event at the Center on April 8, 2014.
