One of their secrets to all this success? Recruiting the best talent, quickly.
"Our talent philosophy at Ocean Spray is about getting the right people into the right positions,” says Martin Mitchell, senior manager of talent and diversity. When Ocean Spray posts a job opening, the company often receives 100-150 applications for the position.
Due to time constraints, hiring managers had to limit their selections to five candidates and would conduct two rounds of phone screens per candidate. The process took about two weeks to complete. “We were looking for an alternative to speed up that process,” says Mitchell, “How could we get candidates through the pipeline quicker, engage them, and then show them a little bit about Ocean Spray and how we are an innovative organization?”
