    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your lower level management needs some serious guidance as they are wasting much time and money doing constant interviewing hiring of both regular and contract employees. I have seen whole departments tied up for weeks, sometimes over a month performing interviews, then the hiring manager has a hard time making a decision. This process could ultimately scare potential good candidates away. You are not effectively using the many contract agencies to your advantage in order to save valuable man hours, time and money. Why not allow the agencies to do the HR interviews and choosing of people rather than by many managers who have no clue or simply don't really want to? After all, these are contractors and you can send them back any time you feel they are not working out for you. Agencies are there to help you and help you cut costs. The interview process in place defeats the whole purpose.
