The new generation at the beginning of their careers is rarely tied to one place of employment. However, there are some young people who are immediately committed to their jobs and loyal to their employers. There is no single ready recipe for hiring a good employee. However, the most important criterion in evaluating a candidate is his/her attitude towards the client, communicativeness, personal culture and activity. Openness to others also guarantees a good atmosphere in a team, which is one of the most important elements in this business. When it comes to people in managerial positions, in addition to the qualities mentioned above, managers must have the ability to organize work well and to lead and motivate a team. Shift managers are usually chosen from the best people in the team, which makes it easier to avoid the wrong choice. Internal recruitment gives employees a chance for development and promotion, and for the employer – a choice of proven and committed people.
