Pollo Tropical

Even though it’s out of my experience and comfort zone I have applied to various restaurants and fast food businesses for jobs such as cashier, kitchen prep and such.  While I appreciate the difficulty of my getting such a job, I was not prepared for Pollo Tropical.

I received an e-mail telling me that there was a “job fair” at their new location which was quite a drive since I was taking care of a friend’s house for that month.  I got dressed up and made sure I was there early.  Unfortunately, there was no job fair.  In fact there wasn’t a restaurant.  Just a billboard on the highway and the shell of a building.  In a mailbox around the back was a mailbox with applications and a lockbox in which to put them.

I started calling numbers listed on the billboard and eventually got someone at corporate who informed me that there couldn’t be a job fair at that site – “The restaurant isn’t even built yet!”  Really?  And I was about to go into the half built shell for lunch.  I filled out an application and left.
