Growth underscores the increasing ranks of the hourly workforce.
May 02, 2012 // Franchising.com // Richmond, Va. – Snagajob, the largest hourly employment network for job seekers and employers, today welcomed Jayne of Kokomo, Ind., as its 35 millionth member. As the only company completely devoted to the hourly space, Snagajob has experienced significant growth, increasing membership by 700 percent in just six years.
Created in 2000 to help hourly job seekers find open hourly positions, Snagajob has grown exponentially over the last decade into an hourly employment network that offers job postings for open hourly positions, talent management solutions for hourly employers and job search advice for job seekers.
Snagajob’s singular position in the hourly space has made the employment network the go-to partner for hourly job seekers.
“Job seekers looking for jobs in restaurant, retail, hospitality, healthcare or any industry dominated by hourly employees know to come to Snagajob to find work,” said Rick Parker, senior vice president of marketing for Snagajob. “When they visit our site, job seekers find that we offer more than just open positions. Our website offers job search tips and advice, and our highly engaged social network encourages job seekers to interact with us and each other to help make their job searches successful.”
Snagajob’s membership growth coincides with the rising influence of the hourly workforce. More than 73 million Americans are paid by the hour, representing almost 60 percent of the U.S. workforce. And while the economy recovers, employers in industries largely comprised of hourly employees continue to add jobs. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, over the last year, manufacturing has added 238,000 jobs, hospitality has added 328,000 jobs, healthcare has added 337,700 jobs and retail has added 130,800 jobs.
Snagajob Talent Sourcing helps employers in these, and other, hourly industries meet consumer demand by connecting with candidates through job postings on Snagajob.com.
“We struggled for years to find qualified team members,” said Mack Landthrip, operations director for M&G Pizza, a Domino’s franchisee. “Then we tried Snagajob and that all changed. We get qualified applicants almost daily, which helps us staff and upgrade our team.”
“I signed up and applied to some jobs on a Wednesday, got called for an interview on Thursday and got hired at Target on Friday, ” said Daniel Navarro, Snagajob member. “Thank you, Snagajob, for helping me get hired and getting me back up and on my two feet. If I become the person I want to be in the future, I will never forget who helped me open doors.”
