Hi, I am a student researcher interested in gathering primary research from small business hiring managers on their current hiring process. I was curious, out of the following issues that small business hiring managers face, which would you say is the most painful? And why?

A. Difficulty in Finding Qualified Candidates
B. Unclear Definition of Job’s Description
C. Lack of Time and Money to Spend on Recruiting
D. Mistakes Made by Hiring Staff
E. Unstructured Hiring Process
F. Employees Not Living Up to Expectations

Additionally, it would also be very helpful if you would rank the above issues in the order, starting with the issue which has caused you the greatest pain and finishing with the least painful.

Any and all responses from experienced small business hiring managers would be very helpful towards my research and greatly appreciated.

Thank you

When the hiring process is through a reputed consulting company as Piterion, the risks or worries in hiring people can be completely left at bay. The systematic process in hiring involves understanding the job profiles, matching the experience and the pay, setting guidelines for the interview questions, analyzing the performance and allocating the income. Shifting your focus to positive hiring will help a great deal.

Finding qualified people can be very hard. Putting a classified ad in the paper or online for hiring generates Soooooo many useless resumes.
So time consuming to weed through.

Personally, mistakes by the hiring staff not finding the right employee for the job can be impactful to the company. Not only did you waste time and money to hire the wrong person, the motivation of your hiring staff can go down as well. They should be equipped with the proper training and skills to give you the right candidates fit for the position you seek. - Paul Savramis (http://oceans2003.org/paul-savramis/)
