Frustrated Employee

You’re New. What Would You Do First?

New employees have an expectation of receiving some training for their new position. That makes sense.

After the training point is covered, let’s ask our prospective, new employee a few of these questions:

“Alice, it sounds like you understand what our company’s purpose is. So, if we were to hire you, what would you do first to help contribute to that purpose?”

“Fred, if you’re just getting started with us, what actions would you take with regards to the other employees in your area?”

“Bob, when you get started with a new company, what do you want to get accomplished right out of the gate?”

“Debbie, if we hired you, how soon would you want to make an impact here? And what form would that take?”

On the one hand, it’s not the end of the world if a new employee just wants to settle in, learn the ropes and gradually become a contributing part of the company.

On the other hand, if your applicant has some clear ideas on getting things accomplished right away, let’s hear what they are.

We do like the pro-active types!

As the law varies in each area, please check with an attorney to ensure you are applying these tips within the law.
