The Origins of Brookdale started in the late 1970s with the focus of Large Upscale Urban Retirement communities located in large cities Like Chicago, New York, and Miami.

4. Selection process:
Selection process is also the part of staffing. Bank have four step selection process
1. CV screening
2. written entry test
4. selection and offer
1) CV screening:
In this step HR department discourage those candidate who do not meet the criteria of job and encourage those who meet with job criteria. HR department also take screening interview with the help of which
CV screening easily skipped the candidate who do not fit so the less time consumed for selecting desired employee
CV screening can reduce the overall selection process cost
CV shows qualifaction , experience, achievement etc of the candidate have which predict the future performance of candidate
CV have referances with the help of which bank investigate the information mentioned so bank trun away from the candidate who’s information is wrong
NIB bank collect paper CV’s the reason is that it does not advertise vacant job on net and also not collect mail CV so screening step become prolonged. As software timely recognize fitted the candidate but in other case candidate waite number of days for the call of interview and test.
Second negative point of paper CV screening of NIB bank is that its not fair because HR manager can perfer those candidate who have good interpersonal realations. So later on when employment tests and interview are taken, the candidate do not show satisfactory result, the time and selection process cost will be highly effected. Suppose, if by chance the candidate become employee of the bank through unfair selection process, the bank will not achive its goals.
Paper CV can lost or missplace easily.
