Q: How do you evaluate a job candidate who has no previous foodservice experience?
Attitude, attitude, attitude. "I am always eager to invest my time in training someone who is willing to work and anxious to learn. I en-courage applicants who don't have previous foodservice work experience because they can learn from my experience. When I advertise for job openings, I always include 'will train' in the ad.
