I have just joined a hotel based in Goa. Its been one month. From the day I have come the management has been troubling me to get employees for various departments right from the front office receptionist to the F&B manager.

I have advertised in papers local and other states, I have spread the word amongst our internal employees, I have advertised on various job sites.They dont want me to use recruitment agencies because they have to pay. In one month a received some really good candidates and around 100 resumes.

My problem is that the management do not want to pay the required salary. Thier pay scale is extremely low for a 4 star resort. Thier main reason for not paying is because they are a startup company and dont have the required finances.

What do I do? There is a huge man power problem here. Cheap labour with the required experience is difficult to get. To the management it looks like I am not doing my job.

The employees who are currently here too are unhappy and want to start leaving. They are not interested in even improving the conditions of those who are here.

Any advice?

You can’t do much when the management is not prepared to pay the going rate? Are they paying you the going rate? You also find another job and quit.
No my salary too is really Low considering I have done my MBA. But this is my first actual HR job and so I am taking this as a learning experience here just till I get the feel of how HR departments work.
You can take fresher from a small Hotel management institutes......If you are paying less then u can provide them with the sharing accomodation plus all four meals which way they can save there money also .....
I have tried that.
The problem is that institutes have a certain period during which the training goes on. So far of 7 institutes that I called all are saying that either exams are going on or the training period starts in May- June.

Hi anu,
There are some consultants who charge only the candidates and not form the company, you need to source only such consultants to full fill your hotel requirements. Also, thre are free lancers available for placing candidates you can source them in your area is not a problem. Even we do requirement from such agencies may a times, really good candidates we can screen form these agencies, it is only a matter of time once you stream line then every thing will fall in line.
Thanks & Regards
