In most forms of government, particularly in a parliamentary form of government, the head of government (e.g., the prime minister or premier) has the sole right to "hire-and-fire" cabinet ministers.

The cabinet secretaries are appointed by the president and confirmed by the senate. How he makes his selections varies with the President but obviously he wants to choose people who will do a good job consistent with the views of the administration. There are also political considerations. Sometimes loyal party members from key states are appointed as a reward for their help. Recent presidents seem to make a point to try for ethnic and gender diversity in their appointments. The secretaries have to administer their respective departments. Secretaries of treasury and defense and the attorney general need to have special expertise and the Secretary of State is highly visible to the world, so these positions are usually carefully chosen.

A good President chooses his cabinet members based on their proven abilities in that field. But every President chooses at least a few cabinet members as a payback for service above and beyond the call during the campaign. It is not unusual for a cabinet member appointed by the new president to be quickly and quietly replaced a year to 18 months after they are appointed because they demonstrate no ability for the job they were given - in fact, it's fairly common - just another fact of life in American politics, regardless of party. A typical example would be Richard Nixon's first secretary of Health, Education and Welfare, Robert Finch. HEW rapidly became a shambles under Finch, and he was "quickly and quietly replaced". (HEW is today called "Health and Human Services").

A new president-elect selects the people he wants in his cabinet he sends his list to the US Senate for their approval. If the Senate approves his choice by a 2/3 favorable vote, the cabinet member is duly appointed. If not, the President has to send in another choice. Each appointment is individually considered. Replacements are filled in the same way.
