Start+ Canada: Hiring Manager Quick Start Guide

The Hiring Manager role is responsible for adding crew members and creating offers in Start+.

Adding crew members

Click the Manage Crew tab to add new crew members one-by-one or in bulk.

  •  To add a crew member: Enter their first and last name and email address. Click Submit.

  • To Bulk Upload: Download the sample CSV file and enter crew members by first and last names and email addresses. Drag and drop the file in the application.

Creating job offers

Once crew members are added, you can create and send offers to the crew.

1. Click the Create Offer tab at the top of the screen, then select the desired crew member from the list. By selecting multiple crew members, the system will create the same offer for each, instead of you having to create individual offers for each crew member.

Tip: You can see which email address you are sending the offer to by hovering over the employee’s name.

2. Fill out the offer information and Union type. The system will default the scale rate (if available) under terms of employment. Rates can be overridden to pay more than scale.

3. Select Loan-out Employee if the person being hired will be paid through a personal loan-out company.

4. If the employee will be Individual, you'll need to add vacation benefits in the "Additional Deal Notes Box" along with any additional notes payroll needs to be aware of. For example, if an employee wants their wages and allowances paid in two different currencies.

Keep in mind: You're required to add vacation benefits in the "Additional Deal Notes Box" for individual employees only. This is not required for loan-outs, though you can still add them here.

5. Add any reimbursements/allowances provided to the crew member, then select whether it is per day or per week.

Note: To set limits, enter a monetary cap, or choose the number of payments.

6. Select the appropriate documents to send to the crew members. The group of documents includes all necessary documents that would normally comprise a paper new hire start packet.
