3 Signs Your Food Truck Employee is Not Trainable
Training a staff member who doesn’t want to be trained is frustrating at best and futile at worst. Don’t invest the time in someone who simply can’t be trained. Look for these three signs that someone is not trainable:
- They have no problem. If they don’t want to change, he won’t be able to. Don’t waste your time trying to force him to see the error of his ways.
- They’re in the wrong job. Ask them, “If the truck shut down today, would you be relieved, surprised, or sad?” If they say “relieved,” help them to figure out what’s next. There is no use in training someone who is truly unhappy about his job.
- Everyone else is the problem. It’s impossible to help train someone who feels they don’t need the training. Move on — find someone who is ready to admit their problematic behaviors and accept your help.
