Fast Food Restaurant

The owner of a chain of fast-food restaurants was having difficulty hiring quality employees. Employee turnover at his company was approximately two hundred percent, and not improving. On average, his employees lasted only six months.

He heard about our service through another business owner and hired Athena Assessment to help improve his hiring decisions. Unfortunately, his HR manager was resistant to incorporating our recommendations.

The owner required every applicant to complete the assessment, but the HR manager continued to hire individuals he “liked,” regardless of their judgment scores.

The HR manager hired a friend as an Assistant Manager of a busy store. Immediately, problems arose. Customer complaints skyrocketed, sales went down, costs went up, and within a few weeks, several good employees quit.

The owner contacted several employees who quit, and each said the problems were with the new Assistant Manager.

Digging deeper, the owner uncovered further problems with the Assistant Manager and quickly terminated his employment.

The owner reviewed the Assistant Manager’s assessment scores. Immediately, he knew. By the way, he also terminated his HR manager’s employment within a few weeks.

A new HR manager was hired with strong judgment. Within six months, sales were up, costs were down, and turnover was cut in half. The owner’s phone was no longer ringing off the hook from angry customers, and his stress was down.
