    Pros

    Making money is never really an issue, especially once you are seasoned. Many people that come through the doors are regulars and know what to expect when they come in to eat. The managers really show concern for the staff and the guests and will do whatever they feel is right, always showing integrity. The potential to grow is always there as there are so many positions, from managers to corporate trainers, and even Vice Presidents. The VP started as a manager, and many GM's started as dish washers. ITS A GREAT PLACE.

    Cons

    Non that I can think of. Some people find it a negative that we cater to families, which means that we have a lot of children come in, especially on nights and weekends. However, in my opinion, if you are going to serve the public, you have to be able to handle most people and age groups.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Silver Diner (Waldorf, MD) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Saw an ad that they were hiring, I applied online. Got a call within a week for an interview. Went in the next day, sat down with the manager and he told me they had a test that I need to take. Asked me a few questions and wrote down some things, then he told me I passed the test. Then I interviewed with the GM and he hired me on the spot.

This company offers something nostalgic for dinner. Silver Diner owns and operates about 15 restaurants in the Washington, DC/Baltimore metropolitan area that recreate the look and feel of a 1950s diner. The eateries, appointed with polished stainless steel, glass blocks, and tabletop jukeboxes, offer such time-honored diner fare as buttermilk pancakes, meatloaf, and apple pie. Silver Diner locations are typically open for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and late-night meals. CEO Bob Giaimo and executive chef Ype Von Hengst started the company in 1989.
