Why would someone want to work at Legal Sea Foods?
The attraction to Legal Sea Foods is quality, being
a part of something that you can be proud of. The
thing with us is that you matter, you are heard. And
that goes through the whole organization. Quality
of the product AND the people.
What is your biggest recruiting challenge?
Finding quality people from the mass of applicants.
What is the future of the company?
We have two restaurant openings – one in
Long Island at the end of March/beginning of April
and then one in White Plains, NY. We are looking at
numerous other sites in other markets too. Our plan
is to open 3-5 restaurants a year.
Your advice for jobseekers?
I’m a restaurant person. I have ADD. I
need quick results, I need them fast, I need them
now! When I get these very long cover letters and
three-page resumes, I’m not going to spend the
time reading through them. I look for longevity, people
who have been loyal to an organization, and people
who show progression and development in their careers.
