For every organization, department of human resource plays very important role as it can select right personnel who can render quality service to the clients of organization thereby giving competitive advantage to it. Hence selection process should be designed by considering various criteria as per choice of employer for selecting best employee for particular post in an organization. In this paper, various selection criteria have been decided for the post of manager and cashier in private bank with the integration of AHP methodology and fuzzy multi-objective linear programming model; selection of best employee for these posts has been made. It was observed that AHP-FLP model is more relevant than AHP method for the selection of employee in bank.
