Company dating find hire new tactic use
When the work hours are so variable that the employer is not certain whether an employee qualifies, they can elect to determine eligibility by measuring hours during a period of up to 12 months, a strategy Wal-Mart said it plans to use.
Temp workers may therefore have to wait a year - provided they are still employed at the company - to find out if they are eligible.
Hiring temps is “one strategy” that retailers could use to mitigate the potential rise in healthcare costs due to the new healthcare care law, said Neil Trautwein, a healthcare lobbyist for the National Retail Federation.
“Another strategy could be employing more part-time employees.” Wal-Mart already has begun to change the healthcare plans it provides workers. employees also faced an 8-36 percent increase in premiums in 2013, the company said at the time, prompting some workers to forego insurance.
“I don’t know about others’ practices or philosophies, but I can say that Costco’s general hope and expectation when hiring an employee is to make it a long-term relationship,” said Patrick Callans, vice president for human resources and risk management at Costco.
Only discount chain Dollar General Corp told Reuters it does hire temp workers year-round but declined to comment on the reasons.
(Reuters) - Wal-Mart Stores Inc has in recent months been only hiring temporary workers at many of its U. stores, the first time the world’s largest retailer has done so outside of the holiday shopping season.
A Reuters survey of 52 stores run by the largest U. private employer in the past month, including one in every U. state, showed that 27 were hiring only temps, 20 were hiring a combination of regular full, part-time and temp jobs, and five were not hiring at all.
The new hiring policy is to ensure “we are staffed appropriately,” when the stores are busiest and is not a cost-cutting move, said company spokesman David Tovar.If they like you, they look for reasons to like you more.If they don’t like your handshake or the awkward introduction, then the interview is essentially over because they spend the rest of the meeting looking for reasons to reject you.It unfortunately encapsulates how most interviews work.There have been volumes written about how “the first five minutes” of an interview are what really matter, describing how interviewers make initial assessments and spend the rest of the interview working to confirm those assessments.
