"Workstream has not just helped automate the entire tedious process of hiring, they have also helped me cut down on my expenses."


Jacob Reitzin, Founder of Dude I Need A Truck

Background

Dude I Need A Truck

Headquartered in Los Angeles, Dude I Need A Truck is a fast-growing logistics company that hires hundreds of drivers and movers who own trucks. The company was created out of the increasing demand of people who need assistance with a one-off transport of a large item that was too big to fit in a car, but found typical transport services too much of a hassle. The company connects customers to a DUDE who helps them move their items. 

Though initially plagued with issues with their hiring process, with Workstream’s help they experienced an increase in quality applicants and reduced hiring expenses. What did they do to achieve this?

Problem

Tedious Recruitment 

Hiring drivers and movers is one of the most important components of the service that Dude I Need A Truck offers to all its customers. However, their recruitment process was time-consuming, and they needed to hire a large volume of people. The turnover rate among drivers in the industry was also high.

Furthermore, they used Typeform to gather information and manually send out forms whenever they needed to collect information or screen applicants. Given the rapid rate by which the team was growing, this process was incredibly inefficient.
