Full Time Recruiters, what do you do to ensure that your candidate has arrived at their destination on their first day?
1. Pick them up and drive them there?
2. Call the hiring manager half hour after start time?
3. Call the candidate half hour after start time?
4. Do nothing and figure someone will call if there's a problem?
Interested in your protocol.
Thanks, Sandra. When I was in temp staffing, it was common place to do morning calls for each new start. heck, we even offered wake up calls. But when you are dealing with VP's and execs, it seems a little out of place. I usually do what you do, minus the HR. (Mostly because 99% of my clients don't have HR- and in this case, I'm placing the HR director).
But I also have a candidate who needs the constant hand holding through the resignation process. My lady is ready to wring his neck because he called 4 times this weekend. And each call is a soap opera. I won't be smoking cigar on that one for a while.
