    Positive Outlook

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

    Pros

    Room for growth in management and full time work.
    Company holds high values for customer service and guest relations.
    Training protocols mirrors other fine dining establishments (one of the best, in my opinion).
    Stephen Starr and other directors constantly are checking on restaurant progress in person.
    Great pay for a restaurant.

    Cons

    High turnover of staff, which can lead to improper management, partially trained employees, and overall careless staff.
    During high turnovers, management gets desperate to hire new people and often hires duds.

    Advice to Management

    Be cautious in who you hire, because the life of the restaurant depends on your people. If you hire people that aren't loyal, responsible, hardworking adults, you can't expect the restaurant to succeed. The reviews of the restaurant will decline with the lack of quality employees.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Starr Restaurants.

    Interview

    Three rounds of interviews, went to the restaurant twice to meet with management and have informal interviews, and then the corporate office once where I actually met Stephen since he was in the office. All of the interviews were very informal, asked about experience and basically making sure you can hold a conversation.
