Do you HAVE to speak Spanish fluently to live in Puerto Rico?

I am considering moving to Puerto Rico in the future. I have visited there twice, loved it, and i had no problems communicating with the locals, as most of them seemed bilingual. I know some basic Spanish such as, "Como Estas?" "Muchos Gracias" "Por Favor" etc. But is speaking Spanish fluently a requirement to get hired at a job? I have experience in the restaurant business as a chef and my "kitchen spanish" is decent. I was planning on taking Spanish classes to become more fluent once i moved there. Any info would be helpful.
