In case lacking of employees, HPC’s departments will fill in the form called “Recruitment request form” (Appendix B) and they send the forms to HR department. After that, this department is going to consider the need of direct labor or indirect personnel of each department to organize and plan to recruit staffs. From here, the HR department is responsible for checking the content of the form and giving additional comments if necessary before submitting to director. Upon presentation on employee demand in accordance with current business situation, the “Job description form (Appendix C)”; a shortlist that describes detailed information about the job and requirement for candidates as follow; will be conducted to prepare for formal recruitment period if everything is approved by the director. Next, the approved documents will be returned to HR department. At this point, the HR department is responsible for finding candidates from internal and external human resources. Internal Human Resources.

Internal recruitment is priority and it is shortened and not carried out in the same order as the basic recruitment process. Recruiter set up internal recruitment information and posts it on the information panel of the company within one week. Members of the company who meet the standards, requirements and accept the salary and benefits of the position may him/herself apply to posted positions.

2.3.1 Preliminary interview

After the head of human resource department sets up the interview list, HPC establishes an interview council whom include head of HR department, chief proposed to increase personnel and may include the director in case of recruiting senior employee. So, the council consists of people who have many years of experience that is the most realistic with the work required to increase staffs so there will be an overview and most accurate for the candidates. Afterwards, they base on the job requirements of the position; based on the results of the study records, on the note of each candidate to prepare the interview questions (Appendix II) for the candidate or for specific members.


In order to have an effective interview process, the interview chairman will inform the candidates about the company’s recruitment process for a metal preparation. With prepared questions, the chairman processes to ask questions for candidates to answer. To reveal candidates’ full potential, personality, cognition and desire, the questions is often open-ended question so that candidates can articulate their own views and opinions. Normally, the questions for candidate are stated on the following aspects: previous job satisfaction, the work that is already done, job motivation, future targets, satisfying job factors, personality life, hobby, personal development, strength…etc. As the chairman carries out the questions, other council members can give additional questions to find out more information and consolidate data. Through this activity, the council can evaluate general factors such as circumstance, character, life style, dynamic and sharp, the striving in the course of work and the capacity to work under high pressure conditions. Immediately after the interview, there is a meeting to get the general evaluation of each council member to select the suitable candidates for next round of interview. HR will notify the applicant to let them know the result. For passed applicants, HR will announce the date and time for second round. During this stage, if insufficient numbers of candidates are selected in the second round as the job requirements and the recruitment plan, the council chooses other records to take place as planned.

Through this step, the employer reduce time, cost considerably for refusing again the incompetent candidates who are lack of experience , qualifications to be able to step forward second interview quickly and save.

2.3.2 Second interview (deep focus on academy)

In this round, the council will base on the result of first interview to prepare academic questions for each candidate. Besides that, there are also some prepared response plans for some situation questions that could be asked by candidates in order to avoid passive situation. By understanding the importance of this step, the council has been very careful, interested in the interview preparation so that it can take place comfortably and effectively. Besides, this also helps the interview avoid a tense atmosphere when the council doesn’t satisfy any wondering of candidates.


As time announced, the board will ask the applicants several questions (Appendix II.2) that relate to intensive work, specific business situation to see the way candidates handle them by showing their knowledge, ability of sharp and experience. By this way, the council can check candidates’ capacity accurately for right choices. Thanks to carry out situation questions, the council could assess objectively on the matter of professional skills, specialization knowledge and actual capacity of each applicant. So, this is the most important and convincing records for council to hire needed staffs. During this round, the candidates can mention their own questions to have a clear understanding about organization and operation of HPC as well as the functions, tasks, benefits if they are employed in the company. After the interview ended, the council will also have a meeting for general comments and agreement for a final result of this work. Next, if the number of retained candidates is not enough for the vacancies, employers shall immediately receive more records and repeat the recruitment process for new candidates.

2.4 Investigation And Curriculum Vitae Verification

The firm has realized that family is an important factor in forming personality and life style of each person so that HR can understand candidates’ behavior through this activity. Complete this stage, the company has enough information to select employee and recruitment process of HPC is finished.

2.4.1 probationary period

HPC Company views probationary work for trainee as an important issue because this is a first step to create premise of job development in advance. Before going on this step, trainee must fill in Receiving Record form (appendix F). During this work; new employees have opportunities to be equipped enough professional knowledge, tasks that need to be done and they can reach big expectations as well as the difficulties via training process, To make new employees familiar with the actual work, companies sends employees to work in teams in which new recruits will be accompanied by one other person with long experience in the work to guide.

Through the process of good training plan, practical work and scientific requirements; new employees quickly become familiar with the work, good integration with the working environment of the company and get tasks which are matched their ability.

During the recruitment period, I noticed some issues:

-job letter offer is a letter written by candidates beside their resume and most of them are prepared carefully at every single word. HR considers this letter is one of factor to choose candidate. But in my opinion, this is a bad case because the candidates can utilize to make this letter perfectly to hide their real ability and personality. It’s not real. Beside personal life, veracity is also very important in working place to avoid fraud.

– Company should ask candidate to check their health before submitting their documents because it would lead to big loss if employee wants to quit the job due to health. Then, company need to do a recruitment process again.

-Alternatively, company can save time and money by implying supplementary quiz tests in the field of personality, skills, hobby…etc. to support interview questions.

-company should prepare an assessment form in which the interview council will depend on candidate performance to mark on it. This method is likely more accurately and quickly.

– company should limit recruitment sources come from introduction of existing staffs because it would cause disagreeing situation with current staffs in case of refusing their friends. They also utilize the relationship to cause risks in the company.

– HPC can save time and recruitment cost by attracting internship students because during 3-6months of internship, the company has enough long time to know clearly students ‘capacity. So, HPC can recruit them immediately if needed.

– In the inspection records recruitment, company should be more closely examined the validity of the certification papers

– the company should have its own recruitment program on the network in order to attract more labor force, less expensive costs and it has an opportunity to promote the brand.
