Driving Talent to Your Organization

Our Proactive Approach to Hiring Diesel Industry Professionals

Top talent in any industry is rarely unemployed. The challenge for most companies is how to access that talent. Retention studies have consistently shown that a shift towards a proactive recruiting approach greatly enhances a company’s ability to acquire a higher quality of talent. Attempts to fill vacant positions when an employee resigns or is let go is referred to as reactive recruiting. Generally this puts a company in a situation where they must quickly fill the void. Think about it for a moment, you just added talent to your team from the responses of a narrow search with a small window of exposure and only based upon those who responded. Unfortunately this approach greatly limits a company’s potential to acquire the talent needed to build a strong successful team.

  • Find candidates you simply can’t find yourself
  • Expert recruiters in this area of staffing
  • Web sites correctly optimized with keywords for the position you’re trying to fill
  • No ongoing advertising costs
  • Drawing talent from North America’s largest network of Diesel Machinery Professionals
  • Industry leading 100% successful replacement record
  • 100% Contingency-based recruiting
  • Complete Anonymity

Proactive recruiting in its simplest essence means always being on the lookout for talent and being able to engage that said talent when they become available. This same strategy is also used by professional sport teams to win championships. Outsourcing this critical function to a niche agency focused on the position you require, gives you the power to constantly improve your team while focusing on your core competency.

Brands our Candidates Work With

The mechanics that we place not only work with various brands of equipment, they do this across multiple industries. We place specialists who work with everything from combine harvesters, class 8 trucks, to massive mining haul trucks. When it comes to finding the right talent to service, sell or maintain your trucks and equipment, you won’t find a better resource than Maizis & Miller – Recruitment Specialists.

When choosing a recruiting firm, there are some important factors to consider to ensure you get the best result and value for your investment. First off, you want to make sure you are drawing from the largest pool of talent available. That only makes sense. Most agencies don’t want to talk about replacements, but at Maizis & Miller, you can take comfort in knowing that we have a 100% successful replacement record when required. Don’t get frustrated as many have waiting months and months for a suitable replacement when that talent was needed yesterday!

How is Maizis & Miller different from other recruitment firms?

In business since 1988, we are a niche-recruiting firm that has developed North America’s largest network of Diesel Mechanics. We currently service this trade and other closely related positions. We provide skilled professionals to multiple industries such as oil & gas, agriculture, logistics, transportation, construction and mining. Our niches are supported by a high profile marketing campaign in all major industry publications with additional exposure on hundreds of specialized internet sites as well as all relevant social networks and through ongoing SEO. Mechanics Hub helps to differentiate us from the sea of generalist or “full service” agencies that abound. This site is very effective in driving candidates to our jobs as it has become the Internet’s most content rich resource for the trade.

Our recruiting team sets us apart. At Maizis & Miller we have a strategic mix of certified HR professionals and licensed tradesmen who utilize the latest technology and Internet recruiting strategies to maximize our network. Our in house sales team continues to secure relationships with top tier employers throughout North America, thereby ensuring a large selection of employment opportunities for the mechanics we represent. Our goal is to develop career long relationships with our candidates and offer them an unparalleled staffing service that is completely focused on their specific trade. Additionally, we have exposure at all colleges across Canada that offer these journeymen programs. From a Mechanic’s point of view, Maizis & Miller has become an invaluable service to enhance their career options, and all at no cost to them. Ultimately, we offer a great deal of expertise in dealing with these tradesmen, the companies and industries that hire them and clearly understand what a good fit is for both our clients and candidates.

We have an HR department, so why do we need an agency?

Human Resource departments today cover a lot of ground with respect to their scope of responsibilities and it seems these responsibilities are constantly growing. These include contract negotiations, benefits, performance reviews, WSIB issues, unions, health and safety, recruiting, etc. Most HR departments’ method of recruiting, when the need arises, is to search their internal database, public databases, run job ads, place internet postings on their company’s website and wait for suitable candidates to apply. This is considered passive recruiting — a strategy that generally produces (to quote the recruiting guru Steve Finkle) “the best of the unemployed, best of the unhappy and best of the unqualified!” Let’s keep in mind how easy it is to send out a resume today.

Recruiting, in its essence, means contacting top talent – typically, employed professionals who are not actively looking for work. These top tier candidates may be interested and available when approached in the right manner by a professional and credible recruiting firm. Most, if not all, HR departments just don’t have the time or resources to actively work a network within a specific niche. Even if they could, their “candidate attractiveness” is limited by having too few opportunities to offer potential candidates. If your organization requires a professional search company focused on heavy duty truck mechanics, heavy duty equipment mechanics or various types of skilled diesel machinery professionals, then that is where Maizis & Miller comes to the forefront. Our recruiters actively network exclusively with these trade specialists on a full-time basis. They have developed positive relationships with thousands of mechanics who see the value in dealing with an agency dedicated to their trade.

How long will it take for you to find me a candidate?

This depends on a variety of factors such as location, compensation, shifts, demographics, market conditions, working conditions, equipment, company attractiveness to candidates and so on. With that said, our network and technology are in place to ensure our clients get speedy candidate submission.

I Have an agency that I am happy with.

That’s great; however, no one agency can do it all. Be very cautious with agencies that use terms like “Full Service” or “Generalist” when describing their scope of service. Visit their website and browse their job offerings. How many positions do you see that match your requirements? Ask them about their search strategy. It’s very difficult to have expertise in so many areas, which is why a niche firm will always be able to outperform a generalist recruiting firm in attracting strong candidates, and typically will produce results much faster.

Do you have a satisfaction guarantee?

We work on a contingency basis, so our clients are never obligated to pay if we do not find a candidate that meets or exceeds their requirements. All placements come with a 3-month warranty subject to terms and conditions.

How do you attract the top talent in the industry?

Understanding, first and foremost, that we impact people’s lives, we always use a positive and professional manner. We treat our candidates as we would like to be treated, with professionalism and respect. This is the cornerstone of our strong relationships with our candidates.

Maizis & Miller currently facilitates the hiring of more Mechanics than any other company in the world. We have built the largest active network specific to this trade, which covers all facets of the internet. Our job board has a huge selection of employment opportunities for this trade and we offer more employment variety at progressive stages of a candidate’s career.

Our recruiters are experienced, qualified and knowledgeable specialists dedicated to this specific trade. Passive job notification technology ensures our candidates are made instantly aware of all new opportunities in their field of interest. Mobile-optimized websites, as well as iPhone and Android apps called “Mechanic Hub Jobs”, are all designed to make it very easy to apply to our postings. Finally, we built Mechanics Hub, the most content-rich online resource for this trade and a key attractor of talent. The site is a staffing industry first.

How successful are you at replacing candidates?

We are very proud of our successful replacement rate of 100%. This highly revealing number is the most underused marketing statistic and a very important factor to consider when selecting an agency.
