Manufacturing staffing Support

At AllSearch, each of our Manufacturing Recruiters specializes in a focused niche industry segment.  Some teams focus on the manufacturing of Building Products, others on designing and building HVAC components, still others purely on Plastics, Steel, Metals, or Automotive production needs, another on CNC Machinery, and more. This makes us uniquely equipped to support the hiring needs of Manufacturing Companies across a variety of manufacturing industries and disciplines. 

Our Manufacturing Recruiters possess real expertise within their specialties and have developed extensive networks of industry professionals across the country.  They understand manufacturing processes and systems, and know what separates an ‘average candidate’ from a ‘transformational hire.’  

By leveraging their industry knowledge and connections, our teams are able to understand our clients’ hiring challenges and quickly secure high-quality talent to fulfill priority staffing needs. No matter if your products are mass produced or custom engineered, our sector specific knowledge and expertise gives you a true partner in your corner in their corner when it comes time to finding the right talent for your Manufacturing Team.

Our manufacturing client base uses a vast array of recruiting techniques to find, land, and retain the best possible talent within this highly competitive employee landscape.  The best bet is to approach staffing and recruiting challenges using a wide variety of techniques, and not overly rely on just one avenue.  Our many polls on this subject over the years have cited the following areas to be the most powerful:

  • Networking with existing peers in the manufacturing industry
  • Building a long standing relationship with the right niche manufacturing recruiting firm
  • Manufacturing trade association memberships and sponsorships
  • Employee referral programs
  • Industry specific and general resume boards...if you have the time and to properly search, vet, contact, and follow through with candidates who, remember, are also being contacted by dozens of other companies
  • Job postings, with the same caveat as above, if you have the proper time and expertise to aggressively pursue the respondents to your Ad, with the understanding that they also applied to a dozen other similar Ads that same day.
  • College and/or trade school internship programs, heavy on your time investment up front, but can be a great way to land talent early in their path

We use a variety of platforms to find talented manufacturing specialists in your area of focus. Typically we'll begin the search within our unique internal database of Manufacturing talent that has been grown and carefully curated over the last 20+ years.   We also subscribe to and expertly use the most premium versions of every single modern job board, tool, website, medium that you could possibly think of. 

By working with the right manufacturing recruiters, you too will "have access" to all of that power.  A good recruiter will also post your jobs online, but not in the way most companies and agencies will.  Instead, having invested FAR more in the process than most, your Manufacturing job will show up near or at the very top search spot for any candidates who are seeking the type of job you are offering.   

Your Manufacturing Recruiter will research, locate, contact, build a relationship with the right talent, help them understand the nuances and benefits of potentially joining your company.  At the same time helping you to see through the abstract, and genuinely understand what the candidate you are considering is capable of, how they compare to other peers, and if they are really the right match for you. 

A good Manufacturing Recruiter will conduct very thorough research, screenings, and comparative analysis prior to introducing any interested candidates to you.   The goal during those conversations is to get to know the candidate, insure that their skillset is a match, determine exactly why they are looking for a new opportunity, confirm salary expectations, and often most importantly determine if they'd be a culture fit.  This is what we do for a living, all day, every day.  We know what to ask, what to look for, we know what the red flags are, we've seen what works and what doesn't.  If the candidate checks most or all of the boxes, we will send them your way for consideration. 

We typically allow at least 7-10 business days for the recruiter to get the message about your hiring need into the Manufacturing market and gain traction.  During the search process the recruiter will provide weekly check in’s to provide timely market feedback as to what we’re seeing and any challenges we’re facing.   In some cases we may need to adjust the parameters of a search in order to open up the candidate pool and have a better chance in finding talent.  We will be upfront and transparent if we are unable to identify any candidates for your role.

The typical hiring timeline to place a Manufacturing candidate depends on several variables, but if you assume that there will be two weeks of sourcing qualified candidates, roughly two weeks of interviewing, at which point the candidate submits their two weeks’ notice at their current employer, the process is likely to take roughly 6 weeks.  The timeframe could be shorter or longer, but we find 6 weeks to be our average.  A good recruiter will keep you well informed throughout the course of the search, as we are well aware that your teams success can often be dependent upon finding, landing, and bringing your new hire up to speed as quickly as possible.
