We believe it is incredibly important to be upfront about our talent discovery process, the characteristics we look for, and the actual process from a candidate’s perspective. The goal is to hire great talent, foster teamwork, and build a happy, healthy, and motivated team.
We discover talent in several ways:
- Referrals from current and former Anderson employees, investors, advisers and customers (employees are eligible for referral bonuses)

- Community involvement through Sector Partnerships and support of local educational providers (high school, trade schools and fast-track programs)
- Recruiters who focus on specific niches. We prefer the first 3 methods, but appreciate the value of recruiters for hard to find positions when needed

Anderson’s Hiring Process & Stages
- Human Resources and Hiring Managers review incoming resumes and applications. We do our best to notify candidates as soon as possible on the status of their application.
Phone Screen (15-20 minutes)
- This is designed to introduce the company, the position, and have the candidate introduce themselves and why they would be a great fit for Anderson. We also establish fit on availability, compensation, and overall interest on both sides.
In Person Meeting (1-2 Hours)
- After the introduction, candidates that move on in the process are scheduled for an in-person meeting. This live interview is typically conducted in one or two sessions at Anderson International Corp. Candidates will meet with HR, the hiring manger and other team members that the position works closely with. A more in-depth review of work history, a deeper dive into their knowledge of the company, the skills needed for the role, and overall cultural fit can be expected here. Examples of work, demonstration of excellence, and enthusiasm for the company and the role will be explored and a tour of the facility will take place.
- Depending on the role, we will present interactive, conference based, or offline assessments to determine competence levels. These are not make or break assessments, they simply give us an idea of the competency level you possess and what skills we may need to help you develop.
- We always like to check a few references from peers or superiors prior to making an offer.
- We review the candidate internally and make a final decision on an offer.
- We then make a formal written offer including an explanation of our benefit package.
We understand that this may seem like a lengthy process but we believe taking the time upfront helps us all make sound decisions, both for the benefit of the candidate and Anderson International.
