2. OMLC Partner - Manpower - Screens and Interviews The Applicants
- First, applicants are initially screened by completing a self-scoring instrument that asks them to respond to very direct questions about things they like to do and activities they were good at doing. All of these questions are directly related to competencies associated with success on the job.
- Second, applicants that pass the first screening are invited to an initial interview that consists only of questions that focus directly on the competencies required to be successful in the job.
- Third, if the applicant passes the initial interview, they move on to a structured interview.
- Fourth, the applicant the completes two objective, focused competency assessment tests.
3. Your Company Interviews The Candidates
Your company interviews the candidate with the aid of the OMLC Interview Guidelines - and shows them around at your facilities.
You will be sent the OMLC Interview Guidelines in advance so you can be prepared for a great interview / discussion with your candidate, to confirm our assessment of the candidate's aptitudes and attitudes.
