I have participated in many interviews during my 20-plus years in the world of hospitality, and it’s not always easy to determine if someone is going to be a great addition to your team. Based on my experiences, however, I do know that using the seven interviewing strategies below will help you find the best possible employees to represent your brand.

And remember, not everyone can work for you, but they can all be potential guests. Give candidates your full attention, be respectful, and always ask what they think about your property and what could be improved upon.
