Recruiting for Mechanical Engineering


This Northwest based Mechanical Contractor has earned a long standing reputation of excellence through performance.  With approximately 250 employees, their workforce is primarily client facing and dedicated to customer projects, so it was important to find candidates just as talented at people skills as they were with engineering.

The Challenge

When new mechanic positions were created or backfill opportunities presented themselves, the operations team had a strong interview and selection process, but didn’t have dedicated resources in place for attracting and engaging candidates in this highly competitive marketplace. As a result, hiring teams didn’t have depth to their candidate pools, and were paying 20 to 30% of new hires’ salaries to traditional recruiters—which was not a long term solution.

The Solution

When this Mechanical Contractor turned to Another Source, they identified in us a partner that could move at the speed of their business, become part of the organization’s overall recruitment strategy given our budget friendly fee structure, and free them up to concentrate on selecting the best candidate for their team. We integrated with them to get roles filled during multiple times of rapid growth.

The Result

With our sourcing strategy that leverages 30+ distribution points and multiple recruitment channels, including active outreach and engagement, we were able to deliver robust candidate pools meeting the client’s every need. In 2017, they averaged just 4.8 interviews per position, and a project fee of just $3400 per search.
