Carl Robins was hired on as the new campus recruiter for ABC, Inc. Due to a multitude of errors on his part, he appeared to underestimate the job description and the duties involved. Apparently Carl Robins was hired for a position with excessive responsibilities for him to manage. As a result, Carl’s lack of organization, preparation, and attention to detail became obvious. Although he was successful in hiring fifteen new recruits, he does not possess the necessary organizational nor time-management skills to complete the hiring process required of him. Mr. Robins recruited the new trainees in the beginning of April to work for the Operation Supervisor, Monica Carrolls. After hiring the new employees he scheduled a new orientation for June 15th without checking to see if the space he reserved was already booked. On May 15th, Monica reminded Carl of the training schedule, orientation, manuals, policy booklets, drug tests, and all of the other issues he was to have coordinated by the June 15th deadline. During his contact with Ms. Carrolls, he assured her that the specified issues would be in order on time. Unfortunately Mr. Robins did not follow through in concluding the hiring process correctly. While Mr. Robins was able to successfully recruit several new hires, he lacked in following hiring procedures correctly. In retrospect, consideration should have been made on Mr. Robins’ behalf to look into what may have caused his lapse in judgment. Did the manual given to Mr. Robins at the time of his hire, clearly specify the protocols put in place by ABC, Inc. on new hire procedures. Perhaps his supervisor needed to check in with him periodically to ensure he had a good grasp of the hiring process. It is unclear as to whether or not Mr. Robins was supposed to be in charge of the screening process; however, this could have also been allocated to HR to follow up with as well....
