Dallas-based Eyemart Express has been providing customers with designer frames and prescription eyeglasses for more than 30 years. Recently, the retailer seized an opportunity to expand into new markets and looked to Wonolo for help scaling up its temporary workers quickly.
An aggressive growth strategy brought the company’s store count from 10 to 30 within the first year of using the Wonolo platform. Workers exceeded expectations by upholding company values and hitting quality and volume goals in a fast-paced warehouse environment. On top of that, the legwork for filling jobs was reduced from days or weeks to a few minutes.
Finding workers through Wonolo was a welcome relief after enduring the inconsistent quality and long lead times of traditional staffing agencies. With Wonolo, Eyemart Express was able to see the names and photos of background-checked workers before they arrived, trust in their work ethic, and scale up or scale down with ease. Without Wonolo, the company said this exciting growth sprint would not have been possible.
