When I first began the process of recruiting an employee for McDonalds, I was looking for an employee to work as a shift manager.

Introduction

Hannah Jackson D2 After the recruitment and selection process and my interview, and the feedback given after the interview, I am know going to evaluate the entire performance of my self and whether I felt that I could have made improvements to the planning process prior to the interview, or whether I used the correct type of methods. I'm also going to discuss whether my experience has enabled me to pick the correct recruit. When I first began the process of recruiting an employee for McDonalds, I was looking for an employee to work as a shift manager. Before I advertised for the job, I had to consider the type of skills required for the job role that I was recruiting for. In each stage of the planning process before a potential employee was recruited I had to start at the beginning of the process. I started of by making an advert that was stood out, and had the basic information for a recruit to know before applying for the job. Therefore I had to consider the hours that I was willing to give the recruit of a shift manager, their basic job role and the skills that was required which was that they needed pass experience of being a shift manager, or something along those lines. I made sure that I put on the closing date of the advert so that people wouldn't apply after the closing date and miss on the chance of being a recruit. ...read more.

Middle

Firstly I am going to look back at the first document that I made, this was my job Advert. Looking back now and comparing my job advert to other ones that I have seen in job shops and online websites, I would give more detail about in the experience required, such as that the needed management qualifications/ already worked within a management based job. I would also make the hours of work a lot clearer due to the hours looking as though the shift manager is expected to work every day on a full day shift. My second document that I am going to evaluate is my job description, I personally don't see that many faults with the job description other than I think it could have been more descriptive of what I expected of the shift managers job role. I would have also changed the qualifications and education part to be a lot more understandable, as not all people have a qualification relating to hospitality and catering because they may be having a change in job role, therefore I would make it more open in future for more people to apply for. I personally believe that this document was effective for its purpose and allowed more information about the job role than the job advert. My final document is my personal specification that allowed member of the public to see what they needed to become a shift manager at McDonalds. ...read more.

Conclusion

A huge change that I would also make would be the questions I asked this is really where I felt it was a downfall on the overall planning and recruitment process, I definitely would consider adding in more questions to make the interview longer and ensure I got the correct answers I needed to help me chosen the correct employee for the job with the help of my results. A final change that I would make would be to change my document on the personal specification, I feel that it needed a lot more information included to ensure that the candidates applying for the job role was confident they fit the specification, by the list required, I think the skills included were very basic and wasn't ideal for the job role of the shift manager and therefore I would make changes on this for the future. To conclude, from this whole experience of the recruitment process I really feel I have gained a lot from it and have the skills needed to help recruit employees. I think from the recruitment progress I had in place, wouldn't necessarily been the best to recruit an employee, but I feel from learning from my mistakes I could now go away and recruit the ideal employee by making small amount of changes to my previous recruitment and planning progress. On the whole I feel as though I have gained a lot from this experience and I have the understanding that from the work that I did, I wouldn't have hired the correct employee for the job role. ...read more.
