3 Questions Candidates Should Ask Restaurant Hiring Managers

JobInterview.jpg

Restaurant hiring managers are typically the ones asking the questions during a job interview. It is a nice change when they receive questions from you, since it shows that you are engaged in the conversation and are interested in the job. Here are some questions that restaurant employers like to be asked:

#1: What do you expect from me in the first month of working?

This question may seem like you are jumping the gun, as if you are already hired. However, it is still a great question to ask the hiring manager because it shows that you are thinking ahead. Also, the hiring manager will see that you are goal-oriented and look to succeed in the new role. When working at a restaurant, every employer has different expectations, so it is a good idea to get a feel of what the business particularly looks for from their staff.

#2: How do you measure success?

This is a great follow-up to the previous question. When you ask this, hiring managers again will see that you care about succeeding and want to know how you can achieve that. In addition, it shows that you are responsible and hold yourself accountable to your work. For example, you may want to ask how your performance will graded, whether it be based on number of sales, customer feedback or another factor.

#3: What are some challenges I may face in this role?

A question like this indicates to the hiring manager that you understand the position will have both positives and negatives. Let your interviewer know that you welcome challenges, and are one to find solutions. You not are afraid when you are faced with problems, and can manage difficulties. The hospitality industry itself is full of surprises, so your hiring manager will definitely appreciate that you are able to handle all types of predicaments.

3 Key Things to Research Before Your Job Interview

ResearchJob02.jpg

Before you interview for your next job, be sure to do some prior research. Do not meet with the hiring manager without knowing basic background information about the restaurant or hotel company you hope to work for. Here are three key things to research on and how/where you can find the information:

  • What is the company all about?

Find out what the company does. Is it a restaurant, a bar, a cafe, a hotel restaurant? Make sure you clearly understand what type of business you may potentially be working for. Do thorough research online; visit their Harri company employer page and their company website.

  • What does the company value?

Learn why the business does what it does. What is its mission? See what fuels the employees and employers to work in the hospitality industry, day in and day out. If possible, try to find videos online of the restaurant owner or restaurant manager speaking about the business. With the video, you can hear first hand what the company is like, and why you should be a part of their team. For example, see what it is like working at The Little Beet, which was featured in our Kitchen Culture series. 

  • Is the company being talked about in the news?

This could either be a good sign or a bad sign. Browse through news sites and see what is written about your potential employer. Check out their social medias for hints on what company culture is like. Also, research key people who are part of the business, including owner(s), senior-level managers and decision-makers.

Other important things you may want to research prior to your interview include: 

  • How big is the company?
  • How many employees do they have?
  • Who are their main competitors?
  • What are their goals in the future?
  • Are they a global brand? If not, will they be expanding?
