Let’s say you want to help Bancho with their sushi restaurant. In this case, it’s important to understand how to hire and use employees in Dave the Diver.

Dave and Bancho used to run the sushi bar by alone, but hiring staff can significantly improve the restaurant’s performance. You have to unlock the Staff menu before you can hire people. This will give you access to the hiring option. But there’s no need to worry because our guide shows you step-by-step how to unlock the Staff Menu and hire staff.

When players hire workers, they can give them tasks like helping Dave serve customers, helping Bancho prepare and cook meals, serving drinks, cleaning up after customers, and restocking wasabi paste. This will make sure that the restaurant works well and smoothly.


Unlocking the Bancho’s Staff Menu

Find out the key to Unlock the option to hire workers.

Players must first do what Yoshie asks to Unlock the Bancho’s Staff Menu. The famous chef will ask for a dish made with a shark’s head, and Bancho will give him the ingredients he needs to make it. 


Catching a Shark for Dinner

Learn the thrilling technique to catch a Whitetip Shark.

But sharks are hard to catch because they fight back like bosses in Dave the Diver. Yoshie wants a Whole Roasted Whitetip Shark Head for dinner, which needs a Whitetip Shark head and olive oil.

Whitetip sharks usually live in shallow water, which is usually on the left side of the sea, where you can swim. If you want to catch one, you should wait until it gets ready to charge, then quickly swim out of its way and shoot it with a gun. 

The number of shots needed depends on how many upgrades the gun has, but it’s usually between 3 and 5. When Yoshie gets a shark head, she will add more staffing choices to the restaurant’s menu. Please keep in mind that you can only use this feature in the restaurant, not on the boat or at Dave the Diver Fish Farm.

When the Staff button appears at the bottom of the screen, players can start looking for people to hire. Find the Staff button in the bottom menu of the restaurant and click the control button or the small yellow button next to Yoshie to get to it. Then, the player will have three options to choose from.

  • Flyer ad for 50 coins.
  • TV ad for 150 coins.
  • Internet ad for 400 coins.

Please pick one of the three things that Dave can afford. If you wait until an in-game day, Yoshie will have some candidates for you to choose from. Pick the best person Dave can afford and hire them. This will help players a lot during their time with Dave the Diver.


Train Your Employees

Use Your Employees in Dave the Diver

Here’s a good tip for people who play Dave the Diver: teach your employees how to do their jobs. To start, click on the employee you want to train and press the space bar. You can look at their details, train them, send them to gather ingredients, and more from the menu that appears.

It’s wise to have a few people working in the restaurant and one standing by to get things. At first, you should only need two employees: one to serve and one to get the ingredients. But as the restaurant gets bigger and more people come, you’ll need two more people to help in the kitchen and one more to serve.

By giving employees training opportunities, you can help them learn new skills that can help them do their jobs better. For example, it can make it easier for them to serve drinks in the best way possible. Also, workers can learn other skills, such as:

  • Give out drinks
  • Clear off the tables
  • Find better Tips
  • Bring in more or better customers

Investing in employee development might cost money, but it takes little time. So, spending money wisely is important to get the best help possible to run a successful sushi restaurant.


How to Dispatch Employees

Learn the simple process of dispatching workers to gather ingredients.

Like Auto Supply, Dave the Diver doesn’t have clear instructions for how to send employees out to gather ingredients. Players can find spices, oils, and other cooking ingredients in crock pots under the sea and by completing quests, but they can also send employees to get them. 

Turmeric is one of these ingredients that players will need because it is needed for multiple recipes and one VIP recipe.

In this independent game, you can send out a worker by selecting them and pressing the space bar. Then, click “Dispatch” and choose what they need. The worker will come back the next day with the goods you want.


If players hire workers, they can run their sushi restaurants better and more efficiently in Dave the Diver. By giving workers jobs like serving customers, making food, and cleaning up, players can free up their own time to work on other parts of the business. Training can also help workers learn new skills that can make them more valuable to the restaurant.
