In addition to organizing and hosting successful open-to-the-community workforce-development events, Business Services Representatives (BSR) of the KRA San Diego Metro Region Career Centers—operated for the San Diego Workforce Partnership—are equally expert in supporting its business-partners with targeted recruitment, screening, and hiring campaigns.
Facilitated by BSR Laura Bowden, the KRA South Metro Career Center hosted a 7-day hiring blitz for dd’s DISCOUNTS—part of the Ross, Inc. retail chain—with the goal of employing a minimum of 50 individuals to staff the operation of its seventh outlet in the San Diego area.
Exceptional barely describes the results! Sixty-one applicants were hired as Retail Associates (cashiers, inventory, sales, and stocking) and Store Protection Associates (loss prevention and security), well in time for the store’s September Grand Opening.
Alden Gold, Zone Director, wrote, “Our ongoing partnership with the KRA Career Centers has been nothing short of amazing. The coordination and logistics have been extremely accommodating and the candidate flow has allowed dd’s to cover the initial staffing needs with provision to cover additional staffing headed into the Holidays.
Our special thanks to Laura and the staff for working us into the schedule during a busy time of year. Thanks to their support, we were able to open our highest volume store of the season!”
