3 Things I Look for in a Pro Tapes® Candidate

The job market is crazy these days! Employers are finding it difficult to fill open positions with qualified candidates, yet qualified candidates are having a challenging time getting interviews, and everyone is frustrated. 

What do we look for in a candidate at Pro Tapes®?

When I am interviewing a candidate, these are the three things I look for, regardless of the role:

#1: Commitment

Our customers are counting on us, and if we are short-staffed, that means we can’t get product out the door and we are letting them down. 

#2: Motivation

In order to continue to grow our business, we need employees who are self-motivated, excited to learn, and want to grow with us.  We have many advancement opportunities, and I like to see employees who take advantage of that.

#3: Teamwork

There isn’t any role at Pro Tapes that does not require some level of teamwork, so much so that it is one of our Core Values.  If you cannot effectively work with others, then you won’t be successful at Pro Tapes®.

Once I am confident that a candidate demonstrates these qualities, then I explore role-specific skills and accomplishments. After all, a strong foundation is necessary to build and grow successfully!
