Affiliate Spotlight :: Poached Jobs

With a turnover rate of over 70%, employers in the hospitality industry are all too  familiar with the major challenges associated with staffing their restaurants, hotels and bars. Poached Jobs, a job board specifically for the restaurant industry, streamlines the entire hiring process for both restaurateurs and job applicants.

Starting in 2012 in Portland and Seattle, the site saw tremendous success and quickly expanded nationally, arriving in Nashville earlier this year.

By partnering with other job boards like Indeed, Craigslist, Jobs2Careers and ZipRecruiter, Poached ensures that job postings receive maximum visibility. In addition, the company regularly updates their followers on Facebook and Twitter with job postings.

“Poached has the tools and experience to get your business – be it a restaurant, bar or hotel – in front of a large audience of industry professionals,” says Megan Feil, Nashville Market Manager at Poached Jobs. “With the current mix of high turnover and low unemployment, Poached is the go-to site to find the local talent you need to keep your business growing.”

Applicants who use Poached are able to sign up, review and apply for any posted position absolutely free of charge, which increases the size of the applicant pool. In turn, Poached’s “flip book” functionality makes it simple for employers to view, rate and file resumes in order to determine qualified applicants.

Nashville Originals has partnered with Poached to implement the Poached job board on, and we are excited to see the gap bridged between our members and potential employees.
