The hiring process can take from 1 day to 2 weeks. It depends on the availability of the candidate and how fast management is hiring as well. Typically the steps are: application is filled out, the candidate is called, the interview, the hire. When we have job fairs, candidates are sometimes hired on the spot and then the process is even faster. The technology we have allows us to hire and train new people very quickly.

Answered by Caribou Coffee

Be honest with them. Provide better training for them. Gossip kills a workplace. Talking about someone behind their back is not good in any business. If something needs to be improved tell them. If you don’t like them, suck it up, because you hired them.
