Olive Garden - Poor Management
Application for Employment - Complaint
BIDDEFORD, MAINE -- I recently was eating at this location, when I asked if they were hiring. I was told yes and the manager actually came to table to talk to me. He told me how to apply on line. I went home and applied. I had told The manager that I lived 6 hours away and was currently working and would need to give 2 weeks notice to current job but ....was going to relocate when I had secured a job In the Biddeford area.. I was called in for an interview a week later and drove back..(12 hours) round trip...All went well and I went back to work at present job waiting to hear from Olive Garden. I was called back for a secondary interview ..and again..drove 12 hours round trip.
I know for a fact that I have great references....17 years experience as waitress....manager.....and bartending.
I never got so much as a call as to say they weren't interested. I have since then relocated and we went to the location and one of the "new" in training waitresses, forgot our appetizers...and upset a full glass of soda all over the table...
Kudos to the Manager of the Biddeford Olive Garden...You got a good eye for who you choose to represent the Olive Garden..
I had told the manager to not contact current employer because they didn't know I was looking for another job....and sure enough that's just what he did...I later found out the person he spoke to was upset I was leaving and spoke out of turn....My other references were people I had worked for years and gave me a rave review.....Maybe you need to rethink your current management...
