Hiring great employees for your Mississauga cab company is one of the most important things you can do for your business. Everything else, you can borrow or tweak by looking at what other companies are doing, and make it fit your company. In selecting your employees, however, you’re going to have to do it on your own.
Obviously, when you’re hiring drivers and dispatchers, you want to make sure that they’re honest and reliable. So, how are you going to be sure? It’s not as though you can just ask them if they possess those qualities and take the answer they give you on faith. No, you’re going to have to check references.If your potential employee has never worked before, as is often the case with new taxi drivers, you’ll have to rely on personal references, and you can be sure that no one is ever going to give you the name of someone who doesn’t much like them. So take it a step further – call the references, but ask each reference if they can offer a couple more references who also know the person you’re thinking of hiring. Be sure to follow up. This way, you’ll have a much better chance of actually getting the truth about the applicant. Also, make sure to do a criminal background check and ask for a drivers’ abstract.
Obviously, you want people who are going to represent your Mississauga cab company cheerfully and professionally, so have a good chat with your prospective employee and try to get a good fit for the type of service you offer. If the applicant is friendly and courteous with you, chances are he or she will be the same way with your customers, and will reflect well on your business.
