    I worked at Elmer's Restaurants full-time (More than a year)


    Wonderful guidance from corporate office, staff is all around top to top, and I enjoyed the environment!


    The restaurant should have longer hours of operation and the lottery facilities in the lounge area seemed to attract a rather rough crowd at times.

    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Elmer's Restaurants (Gresham, OR) in January 2017.


    They called me within 2 weeks of applying online and the lady was very nice she left me a voicemail to call back to set up an interview. But waited 20 min for a 5 min interview
