7 Simple Ways To Streamline Your Interview Process

When it comes to recruiting, time is of the essence. When someone leaves, it can take a long time to find a replacement. Here are some ways you can fine tune your interview process.

1) Start with an accurate job description. Make sure your job title is clear and contains keywords ideal candidates would search for.

2) Make Your Job Postings Easy To Find. Be sure to regularly update your company’s website and Linked/Facebook profiles so both candidates and recruiters know exactly what you’re looking for.

3) Prepare! Be sure to prepare interview questions ahead of time. Use your job description to draft interview questions, but also refer to the candidate’s CV for more questions like why did they leave the previous company after only 6 months?

4) Connect with candidates before in-person interviews. It’s OK to reach out to candidates prior to their in-person interviews with questions via phone, email, or even LinkedIn.

5) Get logistics in order. Book the place where you intend to do the interview. Plan a private space for the entire duration of the interview and add on an extra 30 minutes in case it goes long. And, be sure to check that everyone, even the candidate’s, calendars are clear during that time for the interview.

6) Select the right interviewers. Make sure you have key team members, who will be working alongside this employee, in the first (and hopefully only) in-person interview.

7) Don’t waste time with your decision. If your team knows they want this candidate, it’s OK to offer the job on the spot. Don’t dwell or you could lose them, it is an ideal candidate market right now!

5 Tips For Working Remotely While Traveling

Sloane Staffing has gone remote for the summer, and we are learning a thing or two about work/life balance while abroad. Wanting to escape the summer heat in South Florida, we have come across some challenges of working remotely (like being 7+ hours ahead of our clients and candidates!). For every challenge, however, there’s a solution! Here are our ten best tips for how to work remotely and be successful.

  • Adjust to your client’s time zone. Just because you’re lying on a beach somewhere in Europe, doesn’t mean your clients are. Trust us when we say, 3pm is the new 9am.

  • Join a co-working space. In almost every city we’ve been to, there has been co-working spaces for digital nomads who need a work environment that’s more set up for productivity than a cafe or restaurant. Or, a great free option, is checking out your local library for a nice quiet space to get some work done.

  • Find the fastest Wi-Fi. There’s nothing worse than sitting in your comfy hotel room, but not being able to get an email out. Ask around, or visit an internet cafe to pick up on the best wi-fi.

  • Create and stick to a remote work routine. Routine’s help keep you organized at home and in the office, so why not have one while abroad? Distractions are all around you when traveling, so try and carve out those two hours a day to answer emails and make phone calls.

  • Enjoy the adventure! If you’re like us, and love what you do, it’s hard to peel yourself away from your laptop. Remind yourself, that this time off is also a vacation for you, so do your best to balance work and life! Figure out what works best for you.

If you’re traveling and working remotely at the same time, these tips will help you get the most of your remote work. If you have any questions, feel free to call us! 561-512-8989.

Are You Including Your Temporary Employees in Your Company Culture Enough? | Staffing Delray Beach

We know from personal experience and through staffing Delray Beach that more often than not, companies do not include their temporary employees enough in their company culture enough. This can be a huge issue because if your want to get the most out of your temporary workforce, you and your team should make every effort to include temporary employees in your company culture. Your temp workers will not only feel more included and integrated into your company, but they will gain respect for their management and the company as a whole. Think about it: if you expect your temp employees to be as integrated as you perm employees, than you should be treating them all the same. Also, temporary employees often turn into full-time employees anyway! Set a good example for your full time workers, and be sure to include temp workers in any company wide meetings, town halls, happy hours, etc. Also, ask your full time employees how the teams might better include the temp workers. It might not hurt to check reviews of your company on sites such as Glassdoor to see what your temporary employees are saying about you. Word about an employer spreads fast these days, especially with social media and employer review sites. If you make your temporary employees feel like outsiders, they may be quick to share their experience through anonymous posts and reviews. Make it a habit to read through your reviews, you might learn a thing or two!

Partner with Sloane Staffing today! Call us at 561.512.8989 to find out how we can help your company. We’ve been staffing Delray Beach for quite some time now and would love to help you and your company include your temporary workers more into your company culture.

  2. Adjust your work hours. Ask to work flexible hours (i.e. shift your schedule to go in earlier and leave earlier so you can be home when the gets get there) or if possible, remote for a few days.
  3. Organize the night before. Pack lunches and and backpacks and leave them near the door for the next day. Pick out outfits and take showers and baths the night before so you are not rushing in the morning before work.
  4. Make a calendar and set a schedule. Calendar’s can be extremely efficient for all members of the family.

As a hiring agency in Delray Beach, we hear it all the time – and we get it. Mustering up the courage to tell your current employer you are leaving can be nerve-wracking. It can be exciting to receive a job offer from a new company, but scary to tell your boss you’re leaving. To lessen the fear that goes along with giving your notice, you must first remember that you are not letting anyone down. It can be very common to feel like you are disappointing your manager or co-workers, but this simply is not the case. Don’t let them pressure you into feeling this way, they should be proud of you and excited for your new opportunity.  Also, be sure to give your notice the proper way, at least two weeks in advanced. Tell them you will be with the company for the next two weeks and will be happy to wrap up any projects you are working on or train a new hire if they replace you. Don’t forget to thank your employer for all they have done for you. We recommend a simple hand written note. Even if you did not like your job, chances are you still learned something and those skills helped you land this new, these can go a long way. And you never know, you may cross paths with these people again so it’s important to leave on a good note.  It should be exciting that you are taking on a new role. And be just that –excited! It is a great accomplishment to land a job and beat out other qualified candidates. You should be proud of yourself. We know that leaving a position can be uncomfortable or even awkward, but amazing things can happen when you try something new. Contact us anytime at Sloane Staffing, 561-512-8989.

How To Make The Most Of Your Interview When Hiring | Now Hiring Delray Beach

Now hiring in Delray Beach? If so, it can benefit your organization to creatively assess your prospective new hires, rather than asking the typical interview questions. An interview is your opportunity to get to know your potential new hires on a more personal level. Try switching up your normal interview routine. For instance, it can be extremely telling, and a little fun, to ask an out-of-the box interview question. It’s also a good way to loosen up the interview process. For example, try asking something like “If you were to get rid of one state in the U.S., which would it be and why?” Or, “A penguin walks through that door right now wearing a sombrero. What does he say and why is he here?” These off the wall interview questions will force the candidate to think creatively on their feet, and might even get a laugh out of them. Another, more difficult to answer question that will reveal how much your candidate knows about your company, is to ask “If you were the CEO here, what would you do differently if you ran the company?” This will ensure if your candidate has done their homework and research on your organization, and if they might be a good fit or not in your office. You may also ask “What has our company/what is our company doing wrong” or “what can we change here.” Who knows, you might learn something your business could benefit from. The end goal of every interview process is to find the perfect new hire for your particular organization. If you are now hiring in Delray Beach, reach out to us at Sloane Staffing to help with all of your hiring needs. Call 561.512.8989 today!

How to overcome tricky interview questions | Employ South Florida

The best way to properly answer crafty interview questions is to be prepared. Quite often, hiring managers trying to employ South Florida will throw off the wall questions your way to see how you respond and if you can think on your toes. Be sure to practice for your phone, skype, or in-person interviews prior to them actually happening. One of the most common interview questions your potential new boss might ask you is: “tell me about yourself.” This easy enough sounding question can surprisingly get candidates into trouble. Trust us when we say that they don't want to hear about your dating life or hobbies! Don’t take up too much time with your response. Practice your elevator speech before hand. It is important to spend time reviewing the job description before any interview. What you don’t want to do is go rambling on about your personal life.
