    When hiring for an open position, whether skilled or unskilled, it can be overwhelming to see the vast amount of resumes and applications that you'll likely receive. How do you pick the right candidate? Do you go with the candidate with the most impressive resume? Do you pick the person who has the most years in warehouse and manufacturing experience?
