Negotiation Details – they want to people with full available time, or two jobs in the restaurant business, kids, that you really need a job, and your life depend on it, because if you go there and you say something like i live with my parents, i don't have another job, i 'm just studding right now, but i want some extra money to save for a trip or x reason, they will take you as your 2nd choice, people like that usually just work for a few days, then they quit as soon they realize that is not so fun and that the job is hard, and dirty.
