    Thankful Turkeys

    Thankful Turkeys

    It ain’t cool being a jive turkey so close to Thanksgiving, but it's definitely cool listening to the Thanksgiving Day episode of The Chad & Cheese Podcast. Again this year, the boys are talkin’ turkey with the queen of chatbots, the one, the only, Quincy Valencia from Hourly. The crew goes through six 'Thankfuls' and three 'Turkeys'. Yummy! Pass the green bean casserole and turn it up to 11.

    High Volume Hiring Report w/ Madeline Laurano

    High Volume Hiring Report w/ Madeline Laurano

    What exactly is High Volume Hiring? 
    Is high volume different than a gig? 
    Do I need a different system or will my ATS adapt?
    Why are applicants dropping out at such a high rate? 
    ... and much much more... 
    Cheese takes a nap and Madeline Laurano, Founder of Aptitude Research steps up to the mic to talk about her newest High Volume Hiring research. 
    Quit rates are at an all-time high, 4.4m quit last month alone, and nearly a third of women have left or are contemplating leaving the workforce - reported by McKinsey. Let's face it the workforce, almost in its entirety, is just exhausted.

    Indeed? Where we're going, we don't need Indeed.

    Indeed? Where we're going, we don't need Indeed.

    Tiger King is back on Netflix, which makes the fact there's even an episode this week pretty amazing, but as much as we're junkies for Joe Exotic, we're more committed to opening HR's lizard brain on a weekly basis.
    So, here we go: This week, the boys cover news out of Indeed and Glassdoor, as well as funding rounds for Rippling and Workato.
    Then it's on to The Great Resignation, covering news and commentary around Amazon fines, trucker shortage myths, a-hole CEOs and working for multiple employers, compliments of WFH. We even throw in a Britney reference, 'cause she's free now and all that. Enjoy.

    It's Mr. ATS

    It's Mr. ATS

    The world knows Mr. Rogers. Mr. T. And even Mr. Mister if you're of a certain age. But Mr. ATS? Yes, industry veteran Peter Gold has taken up a moniker that a certain podcast cohost dubbed "Mr. VHS" because it seemed so outdated. Well, Gold is on the podcast after that remark and after writing a recent article titled, "Let Them Eat AI," where he decries the trend of artificial intelligence making its way into recruitment technology. If you're on the team that thinks AI is a bunch of malarkey, love a good chat about the past, present, and future of the ATS, and adore a British accent, then this episode is for you.

    cube 19 Feels Horny

    Have you hugged a veteran today? As we record on Veterans Day, Drill Sergeant Sowash breaks down ways to go beyond "Thank you for your service" and personally honoring vets you know.
    Reality check over ... On this week's show, the boys dig into:

    Bullhorn's wallet share acquisition with cube19

    HUGE funding round of Fountain

    Buy or sell? w/ Mogul, Seasoned, and Hirewell

    Walmart shows us that truck driving may not be a long-term career choice

    The show ends on a high note - pun intended - with the GOP apparently leading the charge on the legalization of marijuana.


    Profits over politics, kids! Just so No was so '80s anyway. Like, gag me with a spoon.

Sorry I’m late

Love these guys. Been hearing about them and now I’m in, sorry I’m late. Been in TA for 26 years and seems we subscribe to a similar mantra: while I take my craft very seriously, I never take myself too seriously! Got to laugh everyday!!!
