I worked at The Barking Crab part-time (Less than a year)
The atmosphere is top notch, always striving for friendliness and conversation. Music and location with the outdoor patio in the summer make this the best spot for dinner and drinks in a relaxed environment. Be ready to share your table with strangers and make new friends!
Always busy, 2 hour waits are a normalcy on any given summer night.
Advice to Management
Expand the seating.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at The Barking Crab (Boston, MA) in May 2013.
Informal. Sat by the water with music. One on one questions about experience and talent. Was not too stressful at all. Be prepared to show enthusiasm about customer service and the ability to freely make conversation with anyone. Show them that you care and you can almost guarantee they will reciprocate.
