Human Resource Manager and Co-Owner, JoEllen Smith, shares tips on initial on-boarding & skills testing to verify their new recruit’s capabilities to establish their pay rates along with basic on-job-site training. Learn about the relationships they established with local apartment complexes. 

Pipeline has used H2-B and pride themselves on being a tight knit company that touches base with their employees regularly, no matter where they recruit them from. In fact, some of their new Puerto Rican recruits have already expressed an interest to staying full-time. 

“If you are willing to go through the process of getting the recruits here, meaning assisting them with getting established including the housing and airfare and different things – then do it. They are great guys. We haven’t had any issues. But, it really depends on your bandwidth with that assistance. You do have to pay the fees to get them here, get them acclimated etc. You get most of that back through deductions, but there are costs that you hold onto for awhile or incur, but it’s well worth it for highly qualified staff over the long haul.”
