Greetings to our new direct placement applicants from GTA.

GTA has been selected by several domestic and foreign automotive OEM’s, multi-billion dollar automotive Tier 1 suppliers and a diverse mix of Tier II automotive suppliers to fill many of their current employment staffing needs.

Under the terms of our supply agreements, we cannot divulge the name of our clients until such time that you are picked for an interview, but we will share ALL company data with you as quickly as you are selected for an interview. Through the use of internet search tools, applicants can likely figure out who our customers are in some cases, as they may have the positions posted on their websites as well as having given them to us. Many firms do this as a tracking mechanism to gage their website volume. However, we would urge you to please apply through GTA as we can guarantee that your resume gets put in front of a hiring manager – and our efforts are all at no cost to you.

IF you apply on line to a customer, your name gets logged into their computer system and then when we submit you, it comes back to us rejected as a duplicate - and there is no guarantee that your online submittal gets reviewed in a timely manner - or at all. It is simply a function of how many human and software resources they have or don’t have to review hundreds of online submittals. That is why firms engage outside staffing suppliers such as GTA in order to help them through the maze of applicants. Stick with GTA and we will get your resume in front of those who can decide. That would include the HR or Recruiting Manager – and more importantly, the hiring manager.

Thank you very much in advance for submitting your resume. When you do submit your resume, there is a section marked “Message”. Please add your answers to our candidate pre-screening questions in this section when you apply. You will find the pre-screening questions at the bottom of the job description.

We will get back to you as soon as the customer provides feedback. Thank you for choosing GTA as your job search partner.
