How to get hired at Mark O’s Bar & Grill with a felony
Mark O’s Bar & Grill takes applicants at all its locations. Their website has a contact us tab that you can use to email them to ask if they have job openings, potentially, but it’s best to go into the bar itself.
With that in mind, here’s our thinking on the best approach to get a job at Mark O’s Bar & Grill with a felony:
Research the restaurant — Read their website and look at customer reviews online. Ask around for someone who works there and find out what it’s like. If you don’t know anyone, drop by for a bite to eat and chat with your bartender or server.
Refresh your resume — Make sure that it’s up-to-date. Describe your experience using words like “fast-paced”, “customer-focused” and “teamwork” where you can. Include any volunteering you’ve done, as well as some good work and character references.
Bring your resume in — Drop by the restaurant when it’s not too busy and ask for the manager. Leave your resume with them and be ready to fill out an application form if they give you one. Be pleasant and professional.
Remain available for a call — Keep your phone handy to be sure you don’t miss an interview opportunity. It’s okay to follow-up in a couple of weeks, too. Being persistent in a respectful way shows your strong desire for a job.
Present your best self — Practice talking about your strengths and why you’d be a good hire. This includes any lessons learned from your criminal past. Whoever sits down to interview you will be asking all about your work history.
And, here’s our list of common interview questions to get you started:
- Why do you want to work for us?
- Tell me about a time when you had to handle a difficult customer.
- What’s your greatest weakness and how are you working on it?
- Explain how you got along with a challenging co-worker.
- Were you ever fired from a job? What happened?
