I experienced Vita with my friend and his family over a month ago. My friend was doing research on different restaurants trying to decide where to apply as a server. I thought Vita was fine, it didn't knock my socks off, but I'm not that picky of a person. However, I enjoyed the establishment itself and felt that it's location would prove to be busy even in our current economy. So, my friend applied. After having spoken to ""the manager"" and being interviewed a couple of times in person, my friend felt that this just might be a good fit. However, after the final interview, a call back was promised for the next day and we all eagerly awaited the decision. The next day, no call. My friend did call back to check the status and left a message. Apparently that night ""the manager"" left a message on my friends cell phone and a text message. That was my first clue....how professional was it that this ""manager"" called my friend from his cell phone and also sent a text saying ""sorry, forgot to call..will get in touch with you tomorrow"". Let's jump ahead...2 weeks later..still no call, but not a definate ""no"" because this ""manager"" went on vacation before calling my friend back. During these 2 weeks, my friend didn't know that this ""manager"" was on vacation, and left a message usually every other day. At this point in time, I think we all knew the answer was going to be a ""no"", but it had now come down to professionalism and following through on what you say you will do. My friend also left a message at the number that the ""manager"" had called him from. Turns out it was the ""manager's"" personal cell phone. Then, last week, my friend was FINALLY able to speak with this ""manager"" the conversation took an ugly turn. After getting the ""manager"" on the phone, this ""manager"" proceeded to rail at my friend saying that leaving so many messages and ANY on his cell phone was ""offensive"" and then hung up. My feeling is this: For someone in ""management"" the failure to follow up after having said he would within a day is unforgivable...especially in our current economic climate, when people are trying to find decent jobs. And calling my friend ""offensive"" for leaving messages and using his cell phone...well, sir, if you don't want anyone calling you on your PRIVATE number, don't use it to follow up with potential employees...and a text message is NEVER a PROFESSIONAL way to communicate. I think Vita's owner or owners need to take a good look at who they have running their establishment and evaluate the professional practices of the person who makes make or break decisions. No one deserves to be treated that way, and after reading some of the reviews regarding this ""manager"" I'm so happy that my friend wasn't chosen to work here...obviously this ""manager"" treats his staff and customers worse than he treats potential employees. How disappointing.
Pros: Very nice wait staff
