Mahaffey Fabric Structures is a leading provider of industrial tent rentals in North America and the Caribbean. Its versatile inventory allows customers to choose a sensible economic alternative to conventional buildings. Mahaffey has continued to grow and expand, and as a result, the company needed additional leadership to manage and lead its field teams. Therefore, Mahaffey recently turned to BIC Recruiting to find a new operations/ construction manager. BIC Recruiting placed Andre Pinto in the position.

According to Dave Rech, director of operations for Mahaffey, BIC Recruiting was chosen because Mahaffey was looking for a reputable organization to screen and review qualified candidates with some previous experience in construction or installing/dismantling fabric structures.

“I worked with BIC Recruiting’s Sam Puente and Hazel Kassu,” Rech said. “We worked together on the front end to thoroughly assess what Mahaffey’s expectations were for this position. Both of them asked me several questions to develop a profile of what I was looking for in qualified candidates. I was impressed with Sam and Hazel taking that information and translating it into good, qualified candidates. It really helped make the recruiting process easy! The thing that really impressed me was the lower-than-expected number of interviews to find the right individual for the position.”

Pinto said Mahaffey had everything he was looking for, and BIC Recruiting listened to his needs.

“I wanted to find a position at a company that was expanding, where the employee has the opportunity to build a career over time and grow with the company,” Pinto said. “The interview process with BIC Recruiting was simple and straightforward. I interviewed with Sam via Skype, and then I flew to the company’s headquarters for the second interview. Sam did a great job explaining the company’s needs and asked the right questions to understand if I would be a good fit.”

According to Pinto, the best part of the whole recruiting process was being able to match a company’s needs with his background.

“Mahaffey specializes in a very specific type of construction in which there are not many experienced professionals,” he said. “I believe Sam quickly understood this position had my name on it.

“I would definitely recommend BIC Recruiting to anyone seeking a job opportunity in his or her area of expertise. The whole process was fast, efficient and straightforward. Also, all my questions and/or concerns were quickly taken care of throughout the process.”

BIC Recruiting understands the uniqueness of each client’s needs, and its goal is to place candidates who not only meet those needs but will also grow with the company.

“Through in-depth discussions with both the client and the candidate, our recruiters ensure a strong fit with the company’s culture,” said Hazel Kassu, president of recruiting for BIC Recruiting. “We’re so pleased that we were able to match Andre with Mahaffey.”

“I believe the biggest benefit of using BIC Recruiting is the savings of valuable time,” Rech said. “I did not have to spend time reviewing multiple résumés to find possible candidates. BIC Recruiting is very easy to work with and very professional. BIC will do all the leg work to find you the best qualified candidates for the positions you need.”
