Recruitment at Asda - creating a job advert and related documents.

Extracts from this document...


Task 3 Now that I have finished creating all of my documents, I will have to compare my documents with my group members (Ben, Chelsea, Arry) and choose the best final documents for ASDA as a position for Check Out Assistant. I have created my own documents. The documents I created are: - * Job advert. * Job description. * Person specification. * Application form. * Acceptance letter. * Rejection letter. * Invitation letter. * Interview Paperwork My group decided to do a group project on ASDA supermarket. The job vacancy we chose for the position is for Check out Assistance. We believe that this level of position is not a high rank post and it may not require high skills to perform the job. The main job role for the position is to work in tills, have good communication skills and knowledge working in the retail sector. For the vacancy post we decided that the level of job required for the candidates to must have is a basic educational level of minimum GCSE in Maths and English grade C or above. Because these are the main essential skills needed as we fell that candidates main duties are to deal with customers and being at the till area as a result they need to speak English to communicate well with the customers. We thought that a candidate should have a good personalities as it reflects the job that they are doing as they represent the company. So therefore candidate should be approachable, friendly, easy going and mostly flexible. They should be able to know how to handle with aggressive customers and be able to be flexible when changing shifts. We have discussed that the hour of work should be 37 hours per week and the wage should be �5.37 per hour. We think this is the national minimum wage a person is entitle to get as it is set by the law. ...read more.


sections of the application form because it reflects on all of the skills the employee has gained and what he has learned. The more relevant experience the employee has, the more successful he will be in the job role. Comparing all our documents we had all the relevant information but some of us had quite different from one another and it was pretty hard to chose whose document was the Best . Because we thought that everyone's document were equally good, only the layouts and design made us think different as to whose documents meets to a high standard application form. As I personally think that choosing the application form was the hard part as everyone was equally good. The only difference it made us choosing the final document was with the design of the application form as we took in consideration of the design and the layout of the document because it will make the application form more appealing and eye catching as well as understandable for the candidate to fill in the form completely and properly. This is also useful for the candidate as they may not find it boring and make them fell off tack while they fill in the form because of too much and unnecessary information being asked. Finally we decided to choose Arry as his design of the application form was the best among ours. In his document he has included all of information that needs to be in an application form and because of his design and fonts of the form stood out from the rest of ours documents. Also, his form looks more professional and organised as how the information are layout according to its order numbers and position like personal details then vacancy details etc. Making it very organised for candidate to feel in with clear instruction given. In the application form we have included a brief summary of ASDA and followed the law acts. ...read more.


For example I do not have a front cover for the motivational document which now I think it is important to have as it reflects the overall page of the document. I have not stated a brief summary about what benefits candidate can get and how they can apply to. I have just stated some and the very popular benefits. I also haven't included all the benefits that the company offers to the candidate which in result candidate won't be able to know all their benefits which I think it is a very serious matter to take action on to the company if they do not fully explain the benefits. There are many things that I need too improve in order for my document to look professional as good as my group members document. For the motivational package I personally think that I have created the worst document and it is not created to a high standard level among all other previous documents I have produced. I believe that is why for my motivational document it was not chosen by the group members as my documents information were too many missing. So therefore, for the final document we chose Chelsie document. This is because her document is the best among us. Such as she has a massive detail about the motivation as how to encourage staff to work harder to earn the benefits that the company offers to them. We believe that the whole point of the motivational package is to encourage staff to work hard. Her document is well structured in informing the full summary of the benefits the candidate are entitle to which makes it very informative. The use of short and simple paragraph makes it even look better as you can quickly read and get the information fast and its quite straight forward. The rest of our document has also got the relevant information but not that detail like Chelsie. So therefore we chose Chelsie document for the final version of our group document. ?? ?? ?? ?? ...read more.
