    Negotiation

    They asked what I wanted. I gave an amount, and they raised that amount. I was quite amazed, but like the KM said, " Dish washers are a valuable asset, and without one, you can't run a restaurant. They chose to pay a higher rate and their turnover is low.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Chili's Grill and Bar (Eatontown, NJ) in August 2016.

    Interview

    The interview took about 20 minutes because I had a strong reference. Everyone was very welcoming and I got hired he same day. I dressed smart and made sure to ask questions about salary and uniform. They gave me a coupon to get 15% off of the required slip resistant shoes which was very helpful (and could be used on insoles!). After the interview I had to fill out some digital forms by Brinker (the company that owns Chili's) and was able to start training the next week.
