Since opening the first store in La Jolla in 1998, Kudler Fine Foods has expanded by opening two additional stores. I was hired in 2001 as the manager of the meat department at the Del Mar store. The meat department manager works directly under the grocery store manager. Recently I have been informed that my team will be restructured. Currently, I supervise three employees – one meat cutter and two meat clerks. The department will have additional responsibilities so there is a need to hire new staff. The company is leading toward a more team based structure. Both the new and current staff will have to be trained. The current method of appraising performance is no longer valid so a new appraisal system has to be created. The following is a proposal which contains recommendations and justifications regarding how this restructure will be designed and implemented.
A. Job Description and Qualification
After conducting a job analysis using the structured questionnaire method I propose to add an additional 4 employees to the current staff of 5. The position titles will include:
(1) one meat department manager, (2) one assistant meat manager, (3) one meat cutter team leader, (4) two meat cutters, (5) one meat clerk team leader, (6) two meat clerks. See table 1 which outline the duties and responsibilities on each staff member.
