Just wondering as to how recruitment works. Like if you have two candidates applying for a job. Let's say a managerial position for example within a restaurant - like Supervisor.

Candidate A has X years experience within the company with little to none of the managerial experience. However has been trained in all of the restaurant operations, and previous managers felt as though the candidate was ready for the next stage - of taking on a Supervisor position.

And candidate B is an external candidate. With absolutely no knowledge/experience within the company, however, has experience in being a Supervisor within past restaurants.

Who would you go with and why?

A : Lack of management exp isn't so much of an issue if me and others already think they have the potential. The outside candidate might bring management exp but totally the wrong kind.

So would you say, it would come down to the personality of the candidates?

I'd want someone who had the potential to be a leader. If I felt the experienced candidate wouldn't be a good fit for the staff team in place and for the business as I whole she wouldn't be appointed.

Experience is important, but not the most important thing imo. Potential is.

Not so much, more the skills. I already know the employee that works for me has the exact skills I want, the candidate from the outside is a bigger gamble, i'm relying on 3rd hand information about them really. I would only be seeking outside management candidates if I had no choice.
