Restaurant Hiring Patterns

Portland Daily Sun columnist Natalie Ladd has published some observations on recent hiring patterns at Portland area restaurants.

So, out we went this past Sunday and I look at these mini-adventures as research/business mixed with pleasure, while my BFF feels like she’s out on furlough. Mindset aside, what really struck me on our three-stop outing is how many brand new faces are working in old familiar haunts. I found this a bit disconcerting and struck up a conversation with a bartender who has landed a killer full time job in a well known, upscale Old Port hot spot that features a great cheese list, accompanied by an overpriced yet well designed and crafted extensive cocktail and wine list.
