My Secret Fishing Hole For Hiring the Perfect Restaurant Employee

About two years ago I came up with a brilliant idea (or at least brilliant in my own mind) on how to find amazing restaurant employees for hire at my bar. I’m not sure why I’ve taken so long to share it, but that’s what happens sometimes with a secret fishing hole: you want to keep it all to yourself so it doesn’t become overrun, and so nobody else sneaks in and steals all your fish. But in this case, the fishing hole is massive and running out of fish simply isn’t possible.

In the last post, I described a 5-step process to help guide you in the hiring and training of new restaurant employees so you could eventually replace your dead weight employees with fresh, new, productive rockstar employees. You can check that post out here:

In this post, however, I’m going to share with you a gem-of-secret, which is WHERE to actually find some truly amazing employees for you to hire, in order to save you both time and sanity. I’m like a time-machine psychiatrist all built into one. You’re welcome.

Why am I spending so much time and so many posts on the hiring of restaurant employees? Well for a couple reasons:

  1. Finding quality employees and motivating them is by far the #1 headache that managers have to deal with, so finding and training good ones is a gift, and…
  2. Your staff is the face of your business. They are the ones who have the ability to get your guests to come back again and again, and gaining repeat customers should be your top restaurant marketing strategy, as it provides the best ROI of any other strategy.

For this post, instead of writing about it, I will provide my tasty secret via video format so all you have to do is sit back, relax, empty your mind, watch and drool. Ok, don’t drool, but do relax. And enjoy.
