1. Yours was the first company to make an offer and/or the first job they applied for
  2. Your company was recommended to them
  3. You offer a good work environment and benefits
  4. Your company has a good reputation
  5. The schedule you offer meets their needs

While reasons #2 – 5 are logical, solid reasons to sign on, the #1, most compelling reason doesn’t bode well for the employer because the new hire just needs a job, any job, and isn’t invested in the decision. So, the next time an hourly applicant accepts your job offer, you may save yourself some headaches down the road by saying: “That’s great. Please tell me why you decided to join us.”
