Angelo’s Pizza Employee Selection Outline
To avoid negligent hiring Angelo should only hire people who have worked and have experience in the pizza industry.

Because Angelo’s is a smaller firm he should also think about acquiring formal testing programs to test his employee candidates.

The Wonderlic Personnel Test
The Predictive Index

After the employee candidates have been filtered through using the formal testing programs, Angelo should then set up a structured interview process.

Three-part interview process
Online application
Phone interview
Face-to-face interview

Once Angelo has chosen and trained the candidates that he wants to hire, he should put them on a two week trial period to determine if he wants to keep them on or not.

Error #1
Angelo hires managers who already work with him and they have not been properly trained
He assumes that since they already work for him they automatically know how to manage the business and how he wants things to be done.

Error #2
Compensation and Benefits
Working for a company that has a high turnover rate, the employees who are skilled have to work harder to keep the company afloat.
Angelo should compensate his staff with a pay raise and/or vacation time
Error #3
Angelo uses application forms and help-wanted ads
He should include the job description and job specifications if he wants to attract a certain type of employee.
Error #4
He hires employees based off of one interview
Working interviews
Error #5
Ethics and Employee Rights
Angelo’s main concern is finding honest employees, but he was so focused on that specific areas he hired the wrong ones

Expand the numbers of store
Eventually franchise
