  1. 1. Human Resources (HR)This is the schema that is used in this course. In the Human Resource (HR) records, each employeehas an identification number, email address, job identification code, salary, and manager. Someemployees earn commissions in addition to their salary.The company also tracks information about jobs within the organization. Each job has anidentification code, job title, and a minimum and maximum salary range for the job. Someemployees have been with the company for a long time and have held different positions within thecompany. When an employee resigns, the duration the employee was working for, the jobidentification number, and the department are recorded.The sample company is regionally diverse, so it tracks the locations of its warehouses anddepartments. Each employee is assigned to a department, and each department is identified eitherby a unique department number or a short name. Each department is associated with one location,and each location has a full address that includes the street name, postal code, city, state orprovince, and the country code.In places where the departments and warehouses are located, the company records details such asthe country name, currency symbol, currency name, and the region where the country is locatedgeographically.
