Cableway hosts 2016 recruitment expo in Cape Town
The Cableway hosted its 2016 recruitment expo at Kenilworth Centre on Monday, 4 July 2016 and welcomed 857 potential seasonal team members.
With palpable excitement in the air, our junior managers and marketing team members processed applications from eager workers before they moved on to the fun part of the interview – a short 30-second video insert where they had to answer the question: “If you could be any superhero, who would you be and why?”
Web slinger Spiderman was a firm favourite with the Man of Steel, Superman, a close second. Applicants, aged between 16 and 49, also loved Wonder Woman and Black Widow.
Our HR manager, Tasneem Rajie is thrilled with the turnout:
“We are extremely pleased with the outcome of our expo! We received an overwhelming response and managed to process more than 800 applications on the day. This allows us to have a sizable database, where we are able to call on applicants should additional seasonal vacancies arise. The next step in our process is for line managers to screen applicants by way of going through each application and watching the video clip, while matching to our criteria. Shortlisted applicants will be invited to participate in a group interview process, where a final selection will be made.”
With eight great departments to choose to work in, our retail sector had the most applicants with more than 20% of our 857 recruits keen to work there.
