Restaurant Manager Catches Homeless Woman’s Happy Dance After Job Interview – And Hires Her

She got the job and encourages people to be proud of their accomplishments.

She was apprehensive about her interview.

Kallayah Jones, 21, was homeless for two years. She bounced from one residence to the next, but she couldn’t save up enough money to get her own place.

Finally, she got a job as a waiter at The Spot Sports Bar and Grill in Atlanta, Georgia.

“Before I came to the job interview, I was having anxiety attacks and weak parts,” she told Today. “Hey, chill down, be yourself,” my partner said.

Performing a happy dance
Jones was herself at the time of the job interview. This was noted by Dakara Spence, the restaurant manager, who was impressed by Jones.

“She had a tremendous energy,” Dakara recalled. “I sensed it when she stepped in, and she appeared incredibly optimistic.”

She did a little dance in the parking lot since she was so certain that the interview went well.

She had no idea, however, that her “happy dance” had been captured on the restaurant’s surveillance camera.

“I was ecstatic. I had no idea the cameras had caught me until I went outside.” – KALLAYAH JONES

When Dakara Spence, the manager who interviewed Jones, watched the video, she knew she had to hire him.

“I saw myself in her,” Spence told Today, adding that she had also been homeless at one point.

“She was wearing her scarf when she came in for the interview. “I’ve been there,” she said.

“No one should pass judgment on anyone.” – DAKARA SPENCE

Dakara went on to tell her new hire the good news.

“I called her phone and told her, ‘I’m going to hire you, and I saw your happy dance, so you may keep dancing,’ and she just screamed into the phone.” She told Jones, “It was a lovely time for me.”

Jones was asked how to execute her dance and when people should do it after her video and tale went viral.

“Whenever you’re in a good mood.” Whenever you receive a blessing. Just dance whenever you have a great opportunity and something you’ve been working toward for years, months, or whatever you’ve been praying for. In another interview, she stated, “It doesn’t matter what it is.”

It doesn’t have to be her dance, though.

“Go ahead and do your dance.” Perform the dance. “Are you sure you want to do every dance?”

Jones’ experience serves as a reminder that homelessness can strike anyone (despite the fact that we have the resources to end it!). It’s also a reminder to rejoice in every small win in life, whether it’s a new job, a completed task, or any of life’s many pleasures.
