The greatest asset a restaurant has is its employees.
From the job hunter’s perspective, from time to time it seems as if restaurants never seem to be hiring. Further, anxiety surrounding the job hunt is exacerbated the longer it takes for a hiring manager to respond to the applicant’s resume. In a recent survey
, 85% of applicants stated they expect to receive confirmation of their application within two days.
Although, there may be good reason well-qualified applicants expect to hear back from prospective employers so quickly.

must be “excellent multitaskers, be humble yet affable, efficient yet fastidious, astute but fast, energetic but organized, delicate but durable, be knowledgeable about food and wine and etiquette and society, and also be well-groomed and tireless on top of all that.“
