Hard work pays off

Just ask our employees: Seventy-eight percent of crew members and 82 percent of dishwashers/bus persons say restaurants provide an opportunity for people who want to succeed based on their own hard work. Restaurant jobs allow employees to dictate how much or how little they work and have control over their earnings and schedules.

Part-time, entry-level work is important and fills a critical need in the workforce. It provides additional income and flexibility for people trying to balance their careers with family responsibilities, or as a way to remain involved in their communities.

Most hourly employees are students with irregular schedules, teenagers saving for school, or parents and caregivers who need a job with flexible hours that fit their busy lives. Overall in the restaurant industry, 28 percent of employees are students.
