Carrabba’s has one of the most applicant-friendly job applications in the restaurant industry. If you already have your resume prepared, you should be able to complete the application in less than 20 minutes.
Before you can apply to a job at Carrabba’s, you will need to create an account on their hiring site. Creating an account is very quick and very easy. You will only need to provide your name, email address, and the last four digits of your social security number.
Once your account is created, you will be provided with a password. This will be the password for your account, and you can also use it to access your application if you don’t have time to complete it in one sitting. Carrabba’s will save all of your application information every few minutes, so you will never have to worry about your application timing out and losing everything. Also, if you decide to apply for a different position with Carrabba’s (or one of their other companies like Bonefish Grill or Outback Steakhouse), they will save all of your application data for you, so you can apply with only one click. This is a really great feature, and we hope to see more employers implement it in the future.
At this point, it is time to fill out the application itself. You will need to provide your name, address, phone number, email address, the position that you’re applying for, your scheduling preferences, salary expectations, education, work history, and references. We highly recommend that you take the time to make sure that you have all of this information on hand before you start the application. Being organized and prepared can really help you speed up the application process, enabling you to make the most of your time.
During the application, you will have the opportunity to upload your resume. While uploading your resume is not required, you should definitely take advantage of the opportunity if you have one available. Your application may look a little incomplete without your resume. Additionally, a resume is a great way for you to demonstrate exactly how your skills and experiences have prepared you for the job that you’re applying for. A standardized job application doesn’t really give you that chance.
When you use your StartWire account to apply for a job at Carrabba’s, we’ll provide you with instant application updates. This way, you will always be able to tell if your application has been read and if you’re still being considered for the position you’ve applied for. Sign up now
