First Post—Module 1
Step 1) Read the following and report in full below:
You are a newly hired HR professional now working for Jeans, Inc. Jeans does not have a formal wage structure, rate ranges and does not use compensable factors. Wages are basically set on prevailing wages in surrounding communities coupled with some attempt for internal equity among workers.
Jeans does not participate in formal pay surveys. Instead, the President’s Assistant routinely looks over online job openings and conducts informal surveys among her friends in local organizations. Jeans has always followed a policy of paying employees about 10% above what the Assistant feels are the prevailing rates. She thinks this reduces turnover and fosters employee loyalty. The practice is to pay men about 20% more than women for the same job. The Assistant explains, “When we hire males, they have families, and they are stronger and can work harder for longer hours.”
Step 2) Answer the following 4 questions below. Use question and answer (Q&A) format; in other words, include the original question along with your response. Within your post support your responses with information from at least two reputable sources (library and/or web-based), and provide the full citation at the end. Use APA format for your references. Bring in your own personal experiences, readings, and research, where applicable.
- Compare and contrast the following methods of job evaluation: ranking, classification, factor comparison and point method. Which method (if any) do you recommend for the Jeans company? Why?
- Is the Jeans company to a point where it should set up a formal salary structure based on a complete job evaluation? Why?

- What would you do now with respect to a pay plan process at Jeans? Why?
