Washington Farrington


The client is a manufacturer of snack products including potato chips, cheese puffs/curls, popcorn, pork rinds, and sweet and savory biscuits.



As the leading contract manufacturer and private label supplier for the snack industries in North America, Australia, Asia, Central, and South America, the client came to Shaker looking to improve the quality of hires in its warehouse division among the Packaging Team and increase retention after the initial 90-day probationary period.



Modern Hire built a tailored Virtual Job Tryout for the client that incorporated exercises in math, situational judgment, work history, work style, and a custom simulation for pallet counting.



The candidates who performed well on the assessment showed better performance in their new role and were less likely to leave the position after the 90-day trial period. Additionally, candidates appreciated the realistic look at what the job offered, and feedback was overwhelmingly positive.
