Episode 1140 – The Step-by-Step Guide to Group Interviews

Mike and Lindsay kicked off this podcast episode with a warm welcome and a festive spirit. They gave a shout-out for the Fourth of July, wishing everyone a fantastic holiday. They reminded listeners to connect with them on Facebook or visit their website for any questions.

Let's Talk Hiring

This week’s hot topic was hiring, inspired by the flood of questions from their community. Mike and Lindsay decided to dive deeper into group interviews, especially since Rachel from Lemur Cleaning had some detailed queries about how to conduct them effectively.

The Magic of Group Interviews

Mike explained the pain points of traditional hiring – sifting through resumes, making endless calls, and dealing with no-shows. Group interviews, he said, streamline this process by bringing all candidates together at once. This way, they can quickly gauge who’s serious and who’s not, based on their punctuality and behavior during the interview.

Conducting the Interview

For Rachel and others wondering, Mike broke down the group interview process. He suggested having cleaners run these interviews to improve their skills and show potential hires the demand for the job. They discussed asking core values-based questions to learn about candidates’ real attitudes and compatibility with the company culture.

Legal and Practical Tips

Lindsay raised a common concern about verifying qualifications like reliable transportation. Mike advised handling these checks in follow-up one-on-one interviews to avoid wasting time. They also touched on background checks, with Mike expressing caution due to legal complexities and limited usefulness in truly assessing a candidate’s fit.

Wrapping Up

The episode wrapped up with Mike offering help through their website for those needing personalized advice on hiring or other business challenges. He emphasized the importance of clear communication and consistent processes to make hiring less stressful and more effective.

So, if you’re in the cleaning business and struggling with hiring, take these tips from Mike and Lindsay to heart. And remember, there’s always more help available at Grow My Cleaning Company!
