"One of my managers told me the other day, 'With Workstream, my hiring organizes itself. It's a dream!' It was then I knew we had made the right choice in partnering with Workstream on this crucial part of our business."

Pieology was created to be more than just another pizza place. It's an experience where guests create their own custom pizza with one of their six signature crusts and limitless topping combinations. It's a place for guests to be creative with their food and enjoy time together with friends and family.

Tara Lindstrom shares how Workstream helped her in streamlining her hiring process.
Employees are vital to Pieology because they guide customers from start to finish in crafting their perfect pizza. As such, they are the face of the brand and are a huge factor in the customer’s overall experience in their store. It takes a lot of employees to keep pizzas flowing smoothly through the line, and because of this Pieology has to hire a lot of people to make sure they are always adequately staffed.
Hiring is by far their top challenge. One of the issues they face is recruiting qualified applicants quickly before they sign on for another position elsewhere.
Pieology's managers do all their own hiring, but they are often working the line as well, so they are unable to get back to the applicants right away. Once they do, it can be a game of phone tag - and they often have to use their personal phones to text applicants since most younger applicants do not check email anymore.
The manual interviewing and hiring process they had was time-consuming, tedious, and not getting the desired results.
