The Chad and Cheese have been podcasting since March of 2017 and have published nearly 800 episodes! During that time they have never pulled together a "Best of The Chad and Cheese" compilation, which highlights conversations, topics, and their deeply sarcastic opinions. That's just absurd, ... an oversight, ... and something which needed to be rectified. (Drumroll please) Welcome to the very first "Best of The Chad and Cheese". In this episode, Chad picks his top 5 excerpts from interviews...

Thankful Turkeys

High Volume Hiring Report w/ Madeline Laurano

11/22/2021

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

11/19/2021
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...

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 VHS" because it seemed so outdated.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...

Indeed Tomfuckery

11/5/2021
The industry remains as hot as ever, which is good because there's some Halloween weight I'm trying to burn. Anyway, Indeed leads off the show with the kind of tomfoolery that would even make 2007 Monster blush. (Yes, they're still who we thought they were.) Greenhouse marries a sourcing solution you've likely never heard of, and Fiverr tells LinkedIn and Upwork, "Hold my beer." A scorching round of Buy-or-Sell follows, as well as a look at how Sam's Club is crushing the retention issue...

Workforce Revolution: Anytime, Anyplace, Anywhere!

11/3/2021
We're usually pretty skeptical about company-sponsored surveys. Not surprisingly, the data usually turns out to be a self-serving pile of hot garbage or a half-assed attempt at getting some love from the media. And then there's Talent Alpha's new global talent report, "The A3 Work Revolution: Anytime, Anyplace, Anywhere." We dug it so much, we had to have Talent Alpha CEO (and Firing Squad alum) Prez Berendt on the podcast to highlight some of the survey's finer points and nuances. After...

EEOC Talks A.I. w/ Commissioner Keith Sonderling

10/25/2021
Technology has been a great thing for recruiting, but there's a dark side. Namely, artificial intelligence. A.I. has made companies more efficient and effective, but it's also been a roadblock for job candidates and a hindrance for hidden workers to get ahead. EEOC commissioner Keith Sonderling joins the boys to give a high-level education on the current state of how the government is dealing with the questions around tech and employment.

BetterUp Lands A Great Deel

Stop me if you've heard this one before: HR tech company gets buckets of money. Well, the song remains the same this week, as companies like BetterUp, Deel, and Wonolo keep ringing the register. Also, Cornerstone OnDemand goes private (that always works out well, right?), and a little buy-or-sell with Continuum, Interviewing.io, and Reejig. And if you thought robotic dogs that could open doors were scary, how about ones with guns attached to their backs? Yikes! Listen before civilization...
