Case Study

The Challenge

A global leader in heavy industry technology was seeking a Senior Manufacturing Engineer who would be responsible for the technical leadership, planning, development, and hands-on implementation of Lean manufacturing, supply chain concepts and processes at the client’s manufacturing facilities domestically and internationally. To increase the difficulty, this role would start in a rural location and would require heavy travel.

The Solution

180 Engineering held a detailed intake meeting with senior leadership, including the COO, in order to capture the most essential skills such as continuous improvement expertise with Lean Six Sigma, experience working in metal fabrication manufacturing environment, and change management. Our recruitment team then went off to work searching our talent network, connecting with passive candidates, and following up on referrals until we felt we had the right batch of candidates who possessed the skills needed and excited at the prospect of traveling to be a change agent at different manufacturing sites.

The Outcome

After multiple conversations with only candidates who matched the criteria needed, a recruiter on our team found a manufacturing engineer with the right experince and who was thrilled about the opportunity to lead continuous improvement projects across multiple sites. The candidate readily accepted the offer after several interviews with the client and felt this opportunity was a great advancement for him while our client had finally found the right person to take on an important role within their organization.

I had a wonderful experience working with 180 Engineering, specifically with Dana Straple. The position was a government job in the IT dept. Dana reached out to me to with the job description and mentioned that my experience would be a good fit. She got me an interview with the hiring managers and the decision makers. Each step of the way, she was in constant communication as to what was going on and what the decision makers were thinking. Due to the nature of some/most or at least this specific government position, the hiring process took about 6-8weeks. During that waiting time, Dana was in constant communication with me and ensured that I was going to get hired for the position but the approval process had several steps. Once I received the official offer, she walked me through that process and was still in constant communication even after the HR process, which was also a pleasant experience.I would recommend 180 Engineering since my experience with Dana was a positive one!
As a new graduate, I am very appreciative of 180 Engineering because they helped me land my first full-time position as an Application Engineer. The recruiter I worked with is TJ Gervino, and he reached out, informing me about a new opening that was quickly expanding. TJ helped me prepare for my interview, and I can honestly say that his suggestions with questions, emails, and mock interview topics made a world of difference compared to my previous experiences that I had alone. This was the calmest I've ever been in an actual interview, and I credit that a lot to TJ. Every step of the way, due to his connection with the company, he was able to give me their positive feedback. Going into each phase of the interviewing process, I felt better knowing I truly made a good impression. The entire process was really smooth and quick. We stayed in contact constantly, and I felt like I had someone truly in my corner pulling for me to succeed.
Best experience I've ever had with a recruiting firm! Adam was very knowledgeable and responsive. They helped me land a position that was exactly what I was looking for.
I had a great experience with 180 engineering team members and Chris Petkus during the whole process of interview scheduling and onboarding.
Working with 180 Engineering was a great experience from start to finish. My recruiter TJ was very knowledgeable and was able to find a great employer to match my skills and experience. The interview prep was solid and I got great insights to help me feel confident before going into my first interview. This organization is very holistic where they demonstrate they care for you as a whole person. After every interview the recruiters make sure the follow up and connect with you to debrief and provide any feedback. I would definitely recommend anyone looking to make a career move to consider partnering up with this organization.
My recruiter, Patrick Brigman, put my wants and needs in a job first. He connected me with a role that would be a good fit, then walked me through the entire process. He helped me not only with interview preparation but also with navigating the mental/emotional struggles that come with getting a new role, or in my case, my first role out of college. He was able to provide me information about the company, and he kept in contact with the company and gave me updates at each step of the way. Overall, this was a very pleasant experience and I felt like I had someone on my team the whole step of the way. I am very happy with the role I now have and am so glad I worked with Patrick at 180 Engineering.
Excellent experience from start to finish. Recruiters were very nice and helped me to prepare for my interviews. They did an excellent job keeping me updated on every step of the process. This is the best experience I've had with a recruiting company by far.
Julie from 180 engineering was very helpful throughout the process of the interview. She helped me for interview preparation and also helped in accommodating virtual and on site interviews according to my availability from the work. 180 engineering is genuine and honest recruitment agency.
My recruiter TJ spent more time helping me prepare for my interview than any other recruiter that I have worked with in the past. TJ and 180 Engineering really invested their time in my success. It is very much appreciated.
