Background

ABC Inc. had a new recruiter named Carl Robins who had only been on the job for six months, yet in that short amount of time he had already recruited several potential new employees, and were getting them ready for orientation. Of the new hires, 15 were trainees brought in to work in Operations for Operations Supervisor Monica Carrolls. In order to facilitate ABC’s on boarding process, and get these new recruits ready to work for ABC, Carl was to facilitate all new hire applications, and plan a new hire orientation prior to July.
