Hiring Process

Will Talks Biz Episode 17 Hiring ProcessRecently Cassie applied for a position for one of my businesses to see how I have set up my hiring process. As much as I would love to hire her, we are instead using her experience to talk about the reasoning behind the system I set up for positions that come available

Key Takeaways:

{1:56}By asking more detailed questions about someone’s motivation or their responses to video clips I include allows me to see who is really serious about the opportunity.

{4:07} The application process lays out very clear expectations, including the requirement to read Customer Rules. It paints a clear picture so people understand what they should except by stepping into this role that they are applying for.

{6:43} If people put in the time and effort to go beyond basic details I learn a lot about them before we even schedule an interview. It saves time for everyone.

{8:20} When an applicant submits their application they are sent a Calendly link to schedule an interview. By the time they get that link I know they have put in the effort to complete all the required application steps and have clarity on the expectations if they end up working for me. By sending a link for them to schedule it creates a much more efficient system for scheduling.

{10:32} There is a trial and error to hiring. The important thing is to remember to acknowledge the team you have without spending too much time worrying about searching for an employee you want.

{13:07} There have been a number of people that read Customer Rules before they even get to the interview. So whether or not I end up hiring them, they have now become connected to a valuable tool that will improve their customer service no matter where they end up.
