By following interviewing guidelines, Raspberry ensure to have a thorough interview process and have all necessary data to properly evaluate skills and abilities.

Information on employer guidelines set for by the Equal Employment Opportunity Council(EEOC) can be found on the EEOC’S website under Employment Test and Selection Procedures.

Test and the selection tools mentioned above should not be relied upon as the only screening as the only screening mechanism. Interviews and reference check should carry considerable weight in the overall decision process.

Test and the selection tools mentioned above should carry considerable weight in the overall decision process

As an alternative to testing applicants carefully crafted interview questions can be used to gather information on an applicant’s experience and ability to perform certain aspects of the job without the need for testing. Additionally, applicants provide job-related certification of completion for coursework or technical/industry certifications (related to the position) help to provide a measure of skills aptitude to further evaluate qualifications.

The EECO has set the following Employer guidelines when developing and administering tests:

  • An employer should administer tests and other selection procedures without regard to race, color national origin, sex, religion, age (40 or older), or disability.
  • If a selection procedure screens out a protected group, the employer should determine whether there is an equally effective alternative selection procedure that has the less adverse impact and, if so, adopt the alternative procedure. For Example, if the selection procedure is a test, the employer should determine whether another test would predict job performance buy not disproportionately exclude the protected group.
  • To ensure that a test r selection procedure remains predictive of success in a job, employers should keep abreast of changes in job requirements and should update the test specification or selection procedures accordingly. Employers should ensure that tests and selection procedures are not adopted casually by managers who know little about these processes. A test or selection procedure should be implemented without an understanding of its effectiveness and limitation for the organization, its appropriateness for a specific job, and whether it can be appropriately administered or and scored.
  • Employers should ensure that test and selection procedures are properly validated for the position and purposes for which they are used. The test or selection procedure must be job-related and its results appropriate for the employer’s purpose.

Welcoming the interviewee

Interviewing can be a very stressful experience for some and the more at ease an interviewee is, the better you are able to identify true attributes. The following should be considered:

Step 8: Select hired

Final Applicant

Once the Interviews have been completed our committee will meet to discuss the Interviewees. Committee members will need to assess the extent to which each one met their selection criteria.

The search committee evaluation tool will be helpful in justifying decisions and making them as objective as possible.

Your documentation should demonstrate your selection decision. Documentation is required in order to comply with OFCCP requirements. As one of the most critical steps in the process, it is important to keep the following in mind:

  • The best candidate for the position was chosen based on qualifications.
  • The candidate will help to carry out the goal of its department.

Reference checks

The purpose of a reference check is to obtain information about a candidate’s behavior and work performance from prior employers that could be critical to our decision, regardless of their skills, knowledge and abilities. As past performance is the best predictor of future success, it is recommended references be obtained from current and previous supervisors who can speak to the candidates on the job performance. A hiring mistake is costly in time, energy, and money. Failure to check references can have serious legal consequences. If an employee engages in harmful behavior, which would have been revealed in a reference check, Clients can be held legally responsible for “negligent hiring”.

Step 9: Finalize recruitment

Upon completion of the recruitment, we offer to the selected finalist.

Prior to initiating the offer, we do one more check of the selection process as:

  • We review the duties and responsibilities of the position and ensure they were accurately described and reflected in the job description and interview process
  • We review selection criteria used to ensure they were based on the qualification listed for the position.
