News Flash

The Lone Star Office in Grand Prairie needs your help.


We, the employees at GP, needs 10-12 new service and field technicians.

This is an ALL HANDS priority for Grand Prairie.


Our first Quarter 2022 priority for our Grand Prairie location is to hire 10-12 ‘A ‘ Player** technicians by April 2nd.


Over the past six months, our technician workforce has reduced in number. There are several reasons for the reduction, one being the slow supply chain. Although we have continued to hire a few ‘A’ Player technicians, we have fewer than needed when the material supply chain recovers.


The slow supply chain has reduced the current demand for technician hours. However, when the supply chain flood gates open, Lone Star will need 10-12 technicians just to meet the customer needs.


In preparation of the supply chain recovery, we need to increase the technician workforce.


To date Alatrae, our LSC recruiter, and the hiring managers have carried the burden of finding, screening, and interviewing all possible new hires.


What does this mean to me and my team?

This means we need all Lone Star employees to participate in finding and hiring candidates.



Well, what can I do? Glad you asked.


Here are some ways to help.

The number one way to recruit is to ask for referrals.


“Who are the most talented people you know that Lone Star should hire?”


“Talented people know talented people.”


That question can be asked at the end of a sales call,

when a vendor visits the purchasing agent, or after a professional conference while networking.


How about asking parents after the youth athletic game?


Any social event has an opportunity to ask the question.


“Who are the most talented people you know that Lone Star should hire?”


Try this one when asked what you do, after you explain what you do ask,


“Now that you know what I do, who are the most talented people you know that could be a good fit at Lone Star?”


You know people that know people. Get their contact, get them to us.


ALL HANDS

Sales, accounting, operations, warehouse, engineering, service, CAS, programmers, IT.

Who did I miss?


This is an aggressive campaign. April 2nd will be here in a few weeks.


We are asking for your help. The TEAM needs your help!


PS: All resumes for other positions are welcome for future opportunities.

Send all references and resumes to Alatrae Pruitt for processing. alatrae.pruitt@lonestarcom.com
