Recruiting, Selection, and Retention 2 Recruiting, Selection, and Retention: Outback Steakhouse Employee selection is a very important process in making an organization successful. Choosing the right employee can enhance other human resource functions within an organization . Because Outback Steakhouse has been very successful in hiring the right people it is now a $3.25 billion company with 1,100 restaurants worldwide that employee over 65,000 employees. In this paper I will discuss how the employee selection methods at Outback Steakhouse help the organization achieve a competitive advantage. I will also discuss the importance of fit to Outback Steakhouse. Then, I will evaluate Outback’s selection process including the order of selection methods such that applicants first complete an application then complete test, and then participate in interviews. Last, I will evaluate whether or not these selection methods are valid (Stewart & Brown, 2010). The employee selection process method at Outback Steakhouse helps the organization to achieve a competitive advantage because the process sends a realistic message to the individuals that are applying for the job. Applicants are given a complete picture of what to expect while being employed at Outback through a realistic job preview and a document called a Dimension of Performance. Outback’s realistic job preview provides applicants with details of the benefits and responsibilities of working in its organization. It also informs the applicant that once they are employed by Outback they are expected to take excellent care of others and how they will be held accountable for these actions (Stewart & Brown, 2010).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
