Restaurant job site now in top three Texas markets, eight nationwide

“Poached transformed the way we approach hiring,” says Nate Wales, director of operations at Sway and La Condesa restaurants in Austin. "Highly recommended."

PoachedJobs.com, a national job website dedicated specifically to the food and beverage industry, today introduced new regional sites in Dallas and Houston. Poached launched its Austin site in 2011 and since then has been embraced by popular restaurants such as Uchi, La Condessa, W Hotels, Sway, and Foreign & Domestic to find the most skilled professionals for its staffing needs.

“Poached transformed the way we approach hiring,” says Nate Wales, director of operations at Sway and La Condesa restaurants in Austin. “It gave us the ability to reach and target more appropriately qualified applicants as well as consolidate applications. Most importantly it gave our hiring team the ability to communally screen, review, and rank applicants netting fewer interviews with more job offers. Highly recommended.”

The company also offers posting services for hotels, coffee shops, bars and nightclubs – any place looking for experienced culinary and service workers. As a part of the regional launches, Poached is offering its first job listing for free (promo code: onefreeTX) through the end of April. Single listings are $25, with discount pricing for multiple listings. Applying for a job on Poached is always free.

Poached is unique because of its straightforward “flip book” interface, making it easy to view, rate, annotate and file resumes, all within the site. A hiring manager never has to reveal an email address to a candidate, nor deal with an onslaught of attached resumes. Poached broadcasts new jobs to potential candidates via print and online ads, a vast email newsletter list, and daily updates on Facebook and Twitter.

“We’ve enjoyed great success in Austin, and are excited about growing the business even more within Texas,” says Kirk Thornby, co-founder of PoachedJobs. “The restaurant and hospitality industry are major components of the local economy in Dallas and Houston, and we hope that finding employment in those areas will now be much faster and easier.”
