excerpt:
“The average employee turnover rate for the food service industry ranges from 45 percent to 63 percent annually, according to the National Restaurant Association. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, turnover within food and drinking services hovers around 20 percent in Montana.

Unfortunately, entry-level employees tend to abandon their jobs at the beginning of the summer, just as restaurants are gearing up for the busy tourist season.

In answer, many restaurants have replaced their career ladders with escalators, offering fast-track training programs and promotions in a bid to earn loyalty from top-level kitchen staff while inspiring those further down the chain.”
