Smart & Final - TORRANCE

Workforce History:

Grocery retailer Smart and Final contacted the Torrance One-Stop for staffing assistance for the opening of a brand new store, as well as to expand staff at a Redondo Beach location. In all, Smart and Final was looking to fill 95 job positions ranging from cashiers, to service clerks, load crew members to department clerks.

South Bay Partnership:

Torrance One-Stop staff quickly arranged a recruitment event promotions flyer and conducted an email and social media campaign to get the word out. The first of two recruitments was held at the Torrance One-Stop location with more than 300 people showing up looking for jobs. For the second recruitment event, the Torrance One-Stop staff needed to find a larger venue for the anticipated crowd and partnered with the City of Torrance, which allowed for the use of meeting rooms at their much larger location.

Outcome and Benefits:

The email and social media campaigns were successful in getting the word out on the recruitments as evidenced by the online interactions and numbers of participants. Smart and Final was extremely happy with the outcome as it hired for 85 of the 95 available positions.
