    I worked at Silver Diner full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Really great managers who are personable and friendly, food was delicious and you got a 15% off discount. Our training program was extensive so i felt prepared to work.

    Cons

    Uniform is a bit old school with the checkered apron, kitchen wasn't always staffed sufficiently, and the company had some weird script we had to stick to when talk about the food. The worse thing was probably how often customers modified their orders, you literally had to modify everything yet still get people their food in 15 minutes or less.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Silver Diner (Baltimore, MD) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Interview was short and easy although I feel as if they discriminated towards race. The interviewer asked if I was hispanic and began speaking to me in spanish - I am brown skin but not hispanic. It was then awkward.
