After a successful job fair in Springfield last month, BarryStaff will be holding another at its Dayton headquarters on July 19.
Available positions include warehouse associates, clerical workers and positions on an inside sales team. Several positions – many of them centered on plastic injection molding – will need filled immediately.
All shifts are available. Most positions pay between $9 and $12 an hour.
“Our Springfield office was brand new and had never held a job fair before,” said President Doug Barry. “The turnout was outstanding. We hope to keep that going in Dayton and put even more people back to work.”
The Dayton event will be held at the company’s facility (230 Webster Street) from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. A local bakery will provide snacks. Juice and punch will also be provided.
Although candidates are free to bring resumes, they are not required. Experience in light industrial work will be an asset.
Candidates will be subject to a background check. A drug screen will be administered at the time of placement.
Call it a milestone in BarryStaff’s commitment to the downtown Dayton area.
The company’s brand new 13,000-square-foot facility opened June 1, 2015 on Webster Street. One year later, BarryStaff continues to work with local companies to supply industrial, clerical and permanent job placements.
BarryStaff is also the only business in Dayton licensed to screen travelers for the TSA Pre-Check program.
“Our new facility has allowed us the space to better serve our applicants and expand our services to our clients,” said President Doug Barry.
The Pam and Warren Barry Community Room also opened in 2015. To date, more than 50 businesses and organizations have requested to utilize the room for off-site meetings. With enough space for 80 people, white boards and an exquisite view of downtown Dayton, BarryStaff is proud to serve business professionals on its home turf.
The company has operated from three other downtown locations since 1982.
Employee Spotlight: Kaytee Ryan of Active Electric
Last year Kaytee Ryan moved from Denver to Dayton. She needed a job, but application after application went unnoticed for some reason.
Her online pursuit led her to BarryStaff, and the staffing agency became one of her first stops once she got to Dayton.
“I got a good vibe from everyone,” she recalled.
Ryan now works as an administrative assistant with Active Electric in Moraine. She was full-time after 90 days and she’s been with the company over a year.
“I’m definitely staying here,” she said. “This will be my second home for a while.”
At a time when so many job seekers struggle to stand out above hordes of other applicants, Ryan said she felt relieved when BarryStaff offered to send a video resume to clients. Videos are kept short – 60 seconds.
“I think it sped up the hiring process,” Ryan said. “Everything seemed seamless.”
Waynesville native Steve Jones has been with ASPM for 18 years. He now serves as the plant manager in Vandalia.
Roughly 100 BarryStaff employees work under him. What’s more, a BarryStaff recruiter has remained on site for a handful of years. The goal is to ensure immediate communication with one of the company’s longtime partners.
What makes BarryStaff different, according to Jones, is the longevity of BarryStaff employees.
And longevity is important to Jones. Eighty percent of upper-level employees at ASPM held entry-level positions at one time.
That means current employees should take note.
“We want them to understand the opportunities at ASPM,” he said. “It’s easy to get wrapped up in leaving for a quarter raise. But if they stay, they’ll find themselves promoted to different positions.
“Stay with us and we’ll give you a career,” he said.
