Hiring The Right Bar Staff
July 30, 2016
A bartender’s role is customer-facing, so it’s detrimental that you hire the right team. Otherwise, profits can flummox and customers become unsatisfied.
We help bars all around the world to advertise for bar staff. The bar industry is bigger than ever, so it can be intimidating to get your vacancy out there.
But don’t worry, because we have you covered with tips on employing the right staff.
Advertising For Bar Staff
…It’s easy once you know how to advertise your vacancy and interview candidates. Firstly, the vacancy itself has to lure appropriate people in.
For example, let’s say you’re a fun and vibrant bar and want a young and energetic team to be the face of your business. You’ll need to keep the posting fun and edgy.
So instead of a mundane description like “We are looking for experienced bar staff who are comfortable with customers”, switch it to “Calling young and fun bar staff who are ready for a challenge and have a witty personality”.
Consequently, you won’t attract as many unsuitable candidates.
Hiring Bar Staff At The Interview Stage
In order to know enough about a candidate to judge wherever they’re right for the job, you need to ask the right questions.
Here are a few examples:
- Describe your personality
- Why do you want to work here?
- Where do you see yourself in five years?
- What’s the best part of being a bartender?
- What improvements do you think we could make?
Hiring bar staff isn’t as perplex as many might think. Got some top-secret interview questions? Break out and share with the world.
