    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Chartwells.

    Interview Details

    Was an internal posting so I only had one interview. Questions were mostly about how I thought my skills would apply to the job. And what specific experience I had.

    Cook Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Chartwells in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was called in for an initial interview. I met with the Executive Sous Chef, the interviewer was very friendly and easy to talk to at first. Became a bit more uncomfortable when it came to certain questions, he seemed dissatisfied with many of my answers and it clearly showed in his face and tone. I was unsure of his experience at interviewing so I didn't hold it against him.

    Later, after meeting the Executive Chef, I was led to believe that I was to come in for a cooking practical. Which I believed would serve as a second interview. However, I was called a couple days later and offered the position instead. I feel the overall communication during the process could have been better, but it was adequate.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked, "If you were a car, what car would you be?" As well as, "If you were this pen (puts pen in cup) how would you get out of this situation?"   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There wasn't much negotiation, it was more of a take it or leave it kind of situation. I was not even told what I would be paid or my exact title. I also did not get started until almost a month after I was "hired".

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Chartwells.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Phone interview within a few days. Simple background questions and offered a 1:1 interview. In-person interview was much easier. Just talked about job requirements, work samples, and planned schedule. Offer on the spot and allowed me to think about it for a few days. Overall simple interview process.

    Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lookout Mountain, GA
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Chartwells.

    Interview Details

    They had a very informal interviewing process which took place at one of the dining hall tables during a lunch shift in full view of their clients. While the interview wasn't difficult I was slightly put off by the public nature of the interview in a noisy student environment. The general manager was pleasant enough during the interview though seemed constantly distracted by the students in the room as he would as a question then direct his attention elsewhere in the room.

    Interview Questions
    • The most unexpected question was "What do you want to be when you grow up?"   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Unfortunately I undercut myself initially under the pretenses that if I proved myself then my salary would be adjusted accordingly. This turned out not to be the case because of a "pay freeze."

    Interview Details

    Interview was very, very low key. It happened on the spot of requesting an application, and basically because I had prior experience in the industry I was accepted almost immediately. Took about 7 minutes maybe.
