    Why Boston Market is the Best Underrated Fast Food Place

    Everybody has an opinion when it comes to fast food. Either you love it or you hate it. For years, I have vehemently avoided fast food by any means possible. Others make a definitive list of the best and worst and where they draw their "fast food line."

Boston Market – Why Work For Us?


OUR MISSION

To create awesome rotisserie meals, served quickly, by warm and friendly people.

In 1985, Arthur Cores and Steve Kolow took three simple ingredients—fire, a spit, and chicken—and revolutionized the restaurant industry forever. They opened the very first Boston Market, then called Boston Chicken, in Newton, Massachusetts, with a rotisserie and a dream.

Today, there are more than 450 Boston Market locations nationwide, focused on making delicious home-cooked meals for people who don’t have the time to cook at home. Specializing in juicy Rotisserie Chicken and home style favorites, our classic food is a modern hit.

In a world filled with fast food factories focused on making food faster, more portable, and more profitable, Boston Market remains devoted to just one thing: making food good.

SERVED WITH A SMILE

Nothing complements a good meal like great service. Our team members run each restaurant like their own dining room, and anyone who comes to enjoy our food is a welcomed guest.

We may have more than 450 restaurants and 10,000 employees, but it’s a small world at Boston Market.

Don’t be surprised if you’re greeted by name at your neighborhood Boston Market. Or the door is opened for you. Or your food is served on a real plate with a real smile.

We hope every visit, every conversation, and every bite is All Good.

Cooking up quality food you can be proud of and schedules you'll crave.

We’re proud of the great things we’re cooking UP at Boston Market, not only in our wholesome food, but also in our determination for our employees’ personal and professional success.

    Sales Associate/Cashier Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Boston Market (Plano, TX) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I filled out an online application and got a call a few days later. Went over to the restaurant to interview, manager was nice and knew how to properly interview somebody + didn't dismiss me for having no prior job experience. Interview was pretty pleasant but couldn't take the job because I live too far.
