Attendants- A Posting Option- Facebook

Attendants- A Posting Option- Facebook     

     I have a only a few Likes on my store Facebook pages but as I have found out I really don’t need thousands as it’s my customers and their friends that I am looking for.

Let’s take my current hiring plan.

  I have decided to use a Staffing Agency for a few reasons I’ll cover in another post. This post is about how to get more applicants.[read more=”Click here to Read More” less=”Read Less”]

    Previously I just posted a sign on the store window and interviewed people based on the applications that were submitted. I have found over the past few years that this has found less and less applicants and a limited hiring pool.

     Today I put a post together on the store’s Facebook Page

         Here are all the details. Feel free to cut and paste for your own use.

      If you read this far things are looking good. One last thing to clear up is that we are not looking for someone that “needs a job”, expects to spend time on their phone while at work or is just looking for a paycheck.
     Our customers expect quality and friendliness and trust us to launder their clothes professionally and on time, every time. Cleaning is ongoing throughout the day as our first customer and 20th customer deserve the same respect.

    If you feel you are ready for a position that you never expected would be so interesting ……

We have positions available right now for the right people.

  I have decided to take the step that I address the phone issue right from the very start. I understand the culture and use of Cell Phones but I leave mine out of the way when I work at the store and expect my employees to do the same. 

                 The picture I used was made in PowerPoint and saved as a .jpeg. The clothes pictures are from a Royalty-Free Picture Website. These pictures are offered for free download with unlimited use. You can make a donation to the photographer (which I almost always do- $5 or $10) and also see pictures they have available for sale. Other photos in the picture are from my store.

            TIP: Facebook only allows 20% text on boosted posts.

        Once posted it was Boosted for $10 over 7 days. The target audience was people that like my Page and Their friends within 15 miles of the store.

        It was also posted and Boosted on the Facebook pages of my two other stores. 

And as expected within a few minutes I had a message ” Do I apply online or at the store?”

       Our Store runs efficiently due to a set of Operation Standards that all employees are required to review and follow.  This very clearly explains, with words and pictures, step by step how to do each part of the job.

       Take a minute to scroll back up and review the Job Posting. Notice how it lists the requirements and how to apply.

      I’m expecting the ad itself may screen out some of the potential applicants.

Within an hour of the post there was a comment “I am interested”.  

We will see how many actually follow the directions and let’s hope the staffing company will be busy on Monday.
