Selection Tools The three selection tools that I would use for a hiring program in a supermarket are 1. Completing an application. 2. Holding an interview. 3. Providing references. I think that both completing the application and the interview are the most important two out of these three choices. Completing the application proves that the person that you are about to hire is literate, can understand what they are reading, and that they hopefully know the English language or at least enough of it to be able to function in an environment where English is the dominant language. The interview is also very important. It will give you a feel for that person. The interview will show you how they will interact with the public and give you a little insight into their feelings on certain things.

I have never felt that resources were reliable sources of getting information on someone. When interviewing people for this position you want to make sure that you ask them the right questions. You need that person to give you plenty of background information on themselves so that you know the types of jobs that they have held in the past. You can conclude a lot of information just by talking with them. You can tell if they are a sloppy person and if they are excited about the job by interviewing them. You can also tell if they take pride in themselves. If they show up in street clothes that are not pressed or not clean then you know that they will probably not be a good fit for working in a supermarket or anywhere else. If they do not take pride in their own appearance then they are probably not going to take pride in the work that they

Selection Tools 2 will be doing for your company. The interview process can also give you much more insight into this person that you are considering as your supermarket worker. You need to make sure that the person that you are considering at least has all of the basic skills that are needed for working in a supermarket. Depending on which position in the supermarket you are considering them for is what you are going to base your decision off of. If they are working on one of the cash registers then you are going to want to make sure that they not only have good people skills but you are also going to want to make sure that they can count money, do basic math and stand for long
