When a small, start-up company intends to grow, it has to hire employees. Because the company requires high quality staff, the employer has to interview a lot of candidates and thus, she may take long time to collect the required staff. Of course, there is another important demand which is the time taken by the hiring process which is required to be as short as possible or the company's rate of growth which is required to go as quickly as possible. So, the company has two main demands and needs to achieve balance between them. This is an intuitive idea about hiring from which this case study problem bears its name.
