A warehouse recruiter’s role is to match appropriate candidates to job opportunities on behalf of industry employers. Warehouse recruiters work for industry employers who need employees rather than for job seekers. They are committed to the employer and what’s best for the company. Not all warehouse recruiters work the same way. Some are in-house recruiters for one company. They may focus on referrals from current employees or the people who apply directly to the company.
Large warehousing and distribution companies might have full-time recruiters. Smaller companies sometimes contract with independent warehouse recruiters to work in-house temporarily. External warehouse recruiters work for recruiting firms that specialize in finding candidates, and these recruiters have contacts with many different employers.
Warehouse recruiters help industry employers find the best candidates.
At the heart of the warehouse, a recruiter job description is to find qualified candidates. Warehouse recruiters help employers fill open positions, and that can only happen with a pool of talented job seekers. Recruiters usually already have a pool of potential candidates, but they may actively seek out fresh candidates by utilizing online sources to recruit individuals who are a good fit. When a vacancy is open, the warehouse recruiter searches through the potential candidates to find a good match based on skills, qualifications and other traits identified as required for the position.
Warehouse recruiters help industry employers, screen applicants.
A warehouse recruiter might have access to a substantial pool of candidates, but only a few of those job seekers will be a good match for a given position. Warehouse recruiter responsibilities include sifting through the available candidates to find the top picks to send on to the employer. A screening interview is often used to discover candidates who aren’t qualified. Finding the best options takes knowledge of the industry as a whole and the specific needs for this position. Warehouse recruiters understand what industry employers want and need.
Warehouse recruiters act as a liaison between talents and industry employers
Warehouse recruiters help keep the candidate and employer connected throughout the recruiting, interviewing and hiring process. That may mean acting as a liaison between the two parties. The recruiter may also help with the negotiation phase after the job offer is extended.
Following up with all parties
After the job offers have been made and accepted; and the recruited candidate is at work for a new company, a warehouse recruiter can follow up with both the chosen candidate and the employer to make sure everything is right.
