We opened a new store and it took 5 days of fun training!

Report answer

After the interview I started orientation the next day and my training a day after that. No waiting, No 2 or 3 interviews, No silly videos, and No ridiculous 5 days of training. My trainer noticed I could already take tables my first day, so they fast tracked my training to 2 days. Orientation was a group event, training is 1 on 1.

For a server: Orientation is day one. Then online class and menu test 2 to 4 days. Then 2 classes with a manager and 4 to 5 shifts with different certified trainers. I did my classes on the same days I did my first 2 trainer follows. I was on the floor myself 8 days after orientation. That's with taking no days off.

I started the same week. Had to complete computer training before actual hands on training in the restaurant. The first training was a group classroom, and then each training shift after was one on one with different trainers in the restaurant. I think it was done efficiently
