Competent. No one wants the underqualified in a hurry. I warned about the ineffectiveness of doing this from the get go.
Because of the recession, Recruiting current receiving 300 applications per vacancy. Than we told them to do more work in less time. Although KSAS demonstrated that applicants could achieve results, customers complained that it was too hard and took too much time to complete them so they were eliminated. (How long does it take to copy and paste? 30 minutes?) How can Recruiting be expected to handle more applications, in less time, with less information and still perform at the same level/provide the same level of new employee? Additionally the Federal government keeps employees for about three years. That's a long period of underperformance because we hired the wrong person.
