    I worked at Benihana part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    My coworkers there were amazing and always pumped. Cash tips you receive at that restaurant was a BIG plus. Amazing employee discounts at the restaurant, I think I ate there at least twice a week.

    Cons

    Always smelled like food after work. Extremely busy at times.

    Advice to Management

    Management was pretty great.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Benihana (Anaheim, CA).

    Interview

    It was like a 5 to 10 minute interview with a shift supervisor. I got hired at the end of the interview. The person who hired me no longer works there though.
