How to Get Hired
We asked DVL Group, Inc. for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.
What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?
The 5 key characteristics we look for in our applicants are the DVL Core Values all 83 of us already share. Demonstrated behaviors or experience with collaborating with a customer, showing care for internal and external customers, professionalism in both appearance and manners, integrity even when the customer is not looking and showing creativity in problem solving. What is even better is when the potential applicant mentions any of these values before they are addressed during the interview process. That is how we really know that he/she will fit into our customer satisfaction culture. We have customers who have been with us for over 30 years so a prospective applicant- regardless of the position - must also be passionate about providing GREAT customer satisfaction.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Applicants get our attention by demonstrating key behaviors for the job description. We spend a lot of time in discovering what will make the best applicant for a position. Once we create that job description, competencies and desired behaviors? If an applicant demonstrates them during the interview we know we have found the right one. For example, we had a position open recently. Previous experience is a must but we also were looking for someone who genuinely cared about retaining customers and working in a team environment. When the applicant unprompted - relayed a story about caring for a new customer during a project and taking initiative to do an ill coworker's part of the process that wasn’t her responsibility to keep it moving? We knew we found the right person. The applicant showed care for the customer and compassion for her coworker.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
We are focused on Technicians this year. We have two Power Technician openings now due to growth, and 2 HVAC Technician positions opening in the spring. We have two Senior HVAC Technicians retiring at the end of this year so we want to get the new HVAC associates up and running before the other two retire. It’s more expensive to do business that way but it comes with a lot of perks. Happier HVAC associates, who are not stressed due to being shorthanded, is the main perk! We always try to hire to build the bench, it’s another reason why we are a great place to work. We don’t wait until teams are stressed out because they are shorthanded. We do our best to stay ahead of the recruiting game.
What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?
Our website is the best place to learn about us and our careers www.dvlnet.com We are also on all the major Social Media sites. But I strongly recommend to our Technician applicants to just seek out a current Technician. Or if they are still in school, speak to their professors. We have a great reputation at all the local Tech Schools as being a Great Place to Work!
