Workpop and the California Restaurant Association launched RestaurantJobs.com nationwide. Using Workpop’s proprietary technology, RestaurantJobs.com automates and simplifies the entire recruiting process, while delivering the best candidate experience required to win the best industry talent in today’s competitive market.

Today’s restaurants and jobseekers shouldn’t have to rely on pen and paper, broken job boards, and frustrating applicant tracking systems. RestaurantJobs.com’s user-friendly, paperless solution saves managers countless wasted hours and helps to identify and onboard the right hire quickly and easily on any connected device. The best part: a portion of revenues generated go to funding advocacy for the restaurant industry.

“RestaurantJobs.com is a dynamic new tool that addresses key pain points in the hiring process, for both restaurateurs and candidates,” says Jot Condie, president and CEO of the California Restaurant Association. In today’s economy, with low unemployment, hiring is harder than ever; it takes longer and costs more. A poor candidate experience costs restaurants the best hires.

RestaurantJobs.com offers a mobile-friendly, easy, modern application process, so candidates get a great first impression. And its chat-based messaging system reflects how today’s talent prefers to interact.

“The applicant experience is just as important as the customer experience to the health of brands and businesses today,” says Reed Shaffner, co-CEO of Workpop. “Yet the process remains incredibly inefficient and frustrating. Sixty percent of job seekers quit in the middle of filling out online applications because of their length or complexity. RestaurantJobs.com was developed with the mission of delivering the best candidate experience in the industry.

  • RestaurantJobs.com empowers recruiters, operators, and managers with the tools to source, engage, screen, and hire the best talent faster and more efficiently.
  • Advanced technology automates sourcing, removes friction, and engages candidates from the moment they see the job post.
  • User-friendly screening tools empower managers and collaborators to meaningfully communicate with applicants and make thoughtful decisions faster.
  • Paperless onboarding drastically reduces costs while allowing new hires to contribute immediately on day one of the job.

“We’re incredibly proud to be launching RestaurantJobs.com with the California Restaurant Association,” says Chris Ovitz, co-CEO of Workpop. “Over the past three years, the Workpop hiring platform has found great success with customers in the restaurant industry. With this partnership, we’re able to bring Workpop’s modern, time-saving tools to many more restaurants with an industry-specific solution.”

Workpop has seen subscriber growth of more than 2,550 percent over the past year, and expects continued growth with partnerships like RestaurantJobs.com.

“Revenues from this partnership will be dedicated to improving the business environment for all restaurant owners,” Condie says. “We’re excited to be providing a technologically advanced tool to help restaurateurs that will benefit the industry.”
