05/06/2017Barcelona Tapas Restaurant
This review is about Barcelona Tapas' disorganized, unprofessional management.Mike, the GM, had set up an interview with me.I was eager for this job, nervous, dressed up of course, parked in what had to be Barcelona Tapas parking lot.My dress clothes were a bit wet when I walked into Barcelona Tapasbecause it was pouring rain, but aside from that I think I was presentable.Eventually, finally, I talk with Michael (the Assistant General Manager who is running the show at this day and time), and Assistant General Manager Michael tells me that neither Mike nor Frank are ever here on this day at this time.That's right. Mike--the GM who had set up my interview--was not there. Frank--the owner--was not there (when I talked with Mike previously, he had even mentioned to me that Frank would be there as well... I remember my conversation with Mike the week before, "...if Frank says 'Yes' then you're definitely in." or words to that effect).After waiting at least ten minutes for Michael (Assistant General Manager) to get to the bottom of this by phoning Mike GM, Mike told me, "He completely forget, but you can come back some time next week [and work for free for a couple hours to see how it goes]." (I'm not 100% certain that last part was what he meant, but in our conversation the previous week that's what Mike GM asked me to do for the first interview day, which I was okay with since he wanted to see how I would do).No apology from Assistant GM Michael. He just relayed the message, "He completely forgot, but you can come in next week some day if you want."This really rubbed me the wrong way. In the rain I walked back to my car which was parked in the only lot that could've been Barcelona Tapas. A parking ticket on my windshield. Perfect.Of course after this experience I'm never returning to Barcelona Tapas, and to be honest I'm now motivated to work at one of its competitors and actively promote other eateries and restaurants near me.
