Stage.

I would call it a tryout or audition.

 

I think stage is not the right term because a stage is someone who works for free for a period of time (one day to several months) in exchange for a learning opportunity. 

Sometimes "stage" is used to mean a trail or a tryout for a cook's job, though this is (IMO) not a correct term for that.

Agreed. The word we always used for for someone who is being tested for employment is to Trail. Usually during one service. Completely

different then a stage.
