How Mission Wrecker is hiring top talent using Whiterail Recruits
Challenges after COVID
After COVID, hiring got tough. Matt Oliver, Operations Manager at the towing company Mission Wrecker, found himself in costant need of capable drivers, mechanics, and dispatchers. Before the pandemic, hiring was less of a problem. He had stacks of applications on his desk.
But post-COVID? Those stacks disappeared.
Traditional job boards didn't work
He gave several hiring platforms a shot: Facebook Ads, LinkedIn, ZipRecruiter… you name it. But he barely got a handful of candidates trained up:
“In a 3 to 4 months span, I would get maybe 2 to 3 drivers actually trained and in a truck, in the dispatch office, or working as a mechanic”, Matt recalls.
The Whiterail solution
In November 2022, Matt found Whiterail Recruits. He’s been working with them to attract top-notch staff ever since.
Within only 30 days, 156 applications rolled in for one of his light-duty drive positions.
And these weren’t just any candidates. They were good ones. Matt quickly filtered through the applicants, narrowed them down, and finally had several good options to choose from.
“I wasn’t just scraping the bottom of the barrel trying to get what I wanted.”
The Whiterail Recruits text message-based system made hiring qualified drivers, dispatchers, or mechanics quick and easy.
Whiterail Recruits uses a text message-based system. it takes candidates two minutes to get their applications in.

Matt started chatting with prospects via text, then called, and met his shortlisted candidates for an interview.
Now Matt wasn't just filling seats. He was picking candidates that were actually qualified and a good fit for his team.
