My experience in the restaurant business started when I was about 6 years old. My father owned his own restaurant for about 2 years and during those two years I basically spent every moment there when I wasn't at school.... although I didn't really do anything there. It's hard to motivate a 6 year old to do anything. When I was 16 I got hired to be a server assistant (busser) at Chi Chi's. I worked my way up to Server Assistant trainer after 2 years. Right at the end of my 3rd year at Chi Chi's, that whole dirty green onion's thing happened and the business completely crashed. They had to make alot of cuts to attempted to save the business... Sadly I was one of those cuts.
I applied at Applebee's in Boardman OH to be a dishwasher and at my interview I was asked if I could be a cook. I had no cooking experience at all but I thought I could at least try. I apparently did alright at it because i've now been with Applebee's for 4 years and managed to become a Neighborhood Expert and a Key Employee. My goal now is to become a manager for Thomas & King. I've recently been transferred to the Applebee's in Niles to be a Key and i'm loving every minute of it.
