      Pros

      Once an organization identifies a hiring need, it should begin recruitment. In the case of newly formed positions, organizations should clearly identify how the new role aligns with its goals and business plan. Organizations should also keep relevant internal teams and employees apprised of the new position at each stage of the hiring process. It’s important that all those involved in the hiring decision agree to the hiring process, steps, and appropriate communication channels. Recruitment also includes strategizing how to publicize the new position, both internally and externally; criteria for initial candidate screening; what the interview process will look like; and who will conduct interviews.

      Pros

      Mostly autonomous depending where you land. If you push, you will get. Education, mostly, paid for, but you have to got after it!! Free train, bus (also a con, see below)

      Cons

      Nepotism (constant) Denigration is a constant Lower educated people telling you what to do and acting out toward you when you speak the King's English. Absolutely no safety if you are a bus driver or rail operator (the homeless and degenerates run the system after 8 p.m. and NO ONE does a GD thing about it including law enforcement, because their wings have been shattered by upper "management" and beyond.) Labyrinth when it comes to finding anything in particular and no one takes on responsibility when you have to get paperwork or etc.
