Carl Robins and ABC Inc.
Carl Robbins is the new campus recruiter for ABC, Inc. After being on the job for six months Carl recruited several new hires. Carl Robbins was given a big assignment by the Operations Supervisor, Monica Carrolls to schedule a new hire orientation on June 15; with intentions to have them all working by July. Carl gave Monica his word that everything would be taken care of in time. At the time Carl did not realize everything that was involved to proceed and get the job completed. It is obvious that Carl Robbins was not properly trained on how to proceed in the endeavor, thus he encountered some problems that prevented him from doing a good job. He panicked, and was trying to figure out what he was going to do about this, but instead of panicking he should have started thinking of ways to resolve the problem as quickly as possible. One of the things he could have done was to have called Monica right away to let her know of his dilemma. He should have asked for her help to get back on track so that he could get the assignment completed in a timely fashion.
Monica Carrolls should have given Carl Robbins some specific guidelines to follow since he had only been working for ABC Inc. for six months; and this was his first time setting up a training session. Precautions should have been taken to ensure that the process would have worked more smoothly and that these situations do not occur in the future. Carl Robbins should have been provided training in time management, communication and organization.
There were some problems which prohibited Carl Robbins from completing the assignment that Monica Carrolls had given to him. Some of the trainees did not have applications completed on their transcript on file. None of them had been sent to the clinic for drug screening. Carl only had three orientation manuals and several pages were…...

Background Initially after reviewing the case study, it is obvious that ABC, INC. lacks organization. The information in the case study reveals that on multiple occasions employees or better yet the system or strategies existing within the company are unorganized. This I believe is the root of the problems in this study. Organization has been a hindrance to this company long before this situation; I have come to this conclusion because of the occurrence in where the lack of organization was provided. In this study there are instances in which items are lost and incomplete, and rooms are double booked, which shows the negative effects of being unorganized.

Student Analysis Case Study

...Case Study for Student Analysis By Comm 215 Instructor: Introduction Carl Robbins is a new campus recruiter for ABC, Inc. Carl has been at his new job for only six months. This is the first time that he has run a recruitment effort. He was very successful and recruited 15 new employees in early April. The purpose of this analysis is to determine what issues could be improved and create an easier process for the new hire orientation. Background The research suggests that the main issue taking place is a lack of proper planning. There were many aspects of preparation process for the orientation that were overlooked or the amount of time required to completing the tasks was unknown or ignored. It would also appear that the fact that Mr. Robbins is new in his position as recruiter. His lack of “real world” experience could have caused him to under-estimate the amount of time that is required to prepare for orientation. Another issue that this analysis discovered is that Mr. Robbins was not aware of what condition his orientation manuals and that many were missing pages. This also caused Mr. Robbins added stress because he had to take time, which he didn’t have, to locate the missing pages and create new pages to be included in the manuals. Lack of experience and improper planning appears to be the main issues in this case. Key Problems There are some key issues that this case analysis will focus on.

This case Study is an attempt to identify and recommend ways to improve this process. The new campus recruiter for ABC Inc., Carl Robins has displayed poor planning, execution, and follow through with his first recruitment effort. After only six months of experience with the company, Carl hired 15 trainees. Some of Carl’s responsibilities for the new trainees was to; facilitate the new hire applications, plan a training schedule, organize the orientation, put together the necessary documents, arrange for drug tests, and other necessities in the normal recruiting process. Over a month had elapsed, before Carl realized that most of the new hires had incomplete or had not filed their applications, and all of the new hires had not been sent in for the mandatory drug screening. With a mere two weeks to pull everything together, and with few possible and viable solutions, I have determined the best way to work around the problem is for Carl to take action himself and call each new hire individually. By doing this, he can communicate the missing components of their application and make sure to have the new hires bring...
