In the Staffing Center, your Company is organized in the following hierarchy:
- Departments - Departments are often organized around different operational functions. Common Departments are: Lodging, Food and Beverage, Retail, Guest Services, etc.. Larger organizations may break down their Departments into finer details (e.g. Food & Beverage - Front of House and Food & Beverage - Kitchen).
Note: The Staffing Center allows you to invite members of your team to hire collaboratively, and you can assign permissions based on Department. So for example, if you want to include your head chef on kitchen hiring decisions, you'd create a Department for Kitchen, add all of your back of the house jobs to that Department, and then add your head chef as a Hiring Staff user with access to just the Kitchen Department.
- Jobs - Jobs are nested within departments. For example, within the Retail Department, you could add Retail Clerk, Stockroom Keeper, Inventory Manager, Sales Associate, and other retail jobs.
- Positions - Positions are the number of each individual Job you intend to hire each season. For example, if you hire 6 Front Desk agents, you would create the Job Front Desk Agent once (likely within your Lodging Department), and then you would add 6 Positions within that Job. Positions can have different start and end dates, so if you hire 4 Front Desk agents for the whole season, and 2 agents for the shorter, busier season, you could create positions with different dates and hire applicants who have limited availability (e.g. college students) into the short-season Positions.
