    I have been working at Koto Japanese Steak House part-time (more than 3 years)


    Management sometime lenient about schedule.
    If you prove them that you are a hard worker, they will show their appreciation


    Some workers are:
    not well trained, yet are already hired, hence, causes slowing down the other workers
    kind of lazy - doing things just enough to get by, sometimes not even enough to be called done.
    individualistic (not willing to help, even though they know you need help)
    not able to speak English well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train the workers better before hiring them.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Koto Japanese Steak House in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    One-page written application. The manager selected my app based on my neat handwriting, she later told me. She called me for an interview a few months after I originally applied, and I waited a week after the interview to hear back from anyone. Koto does actually check your references (last two jobs you worked) before officially hiring you. The interview itself was simple, manager was surprised that I actually came "dressed professionally" (?). I was wearing a knee length skirt, panty hose, flats and a blouse. Beware that if you are hired there is a 60-day "at will" employment period where they can choose to fire you at any time, for absolutely no reason. I have seen this happen multiple times.

    Negotiation Details
    Be mindful of the 60 day probationary period. Don't get too cozy with your co-workers, they can use your words against you. The Koto menu is extensive and the Hibachi chefs speak poor English. The learning curve is steep, but if you can "catch on" quickly you will have yourself a decent job with good tips.
