Recruiting is so much more than pulling resumes off job boards (NOT recruiting but order taking). It has to take into account the person coming to your office or moving into the area and using mass transit to get to work.
It comes as no surprise that the New York Subway System is a huge money pit where even $1 Billion can’t ensure that elevators and escalators can work properly. Just imagine that you have this incredible person on the hook to accept your job offer – and has some kind of physical disability – who will have to use our area’s mass transit system yet will never know when it will work properly.
The lassitude and excuses proffered by the MTA are lame and are another set of reasons why recruiting to NYC Metro is so challenging…it’s more than just salary folks!
