    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Darden (Memphis, TN).

    Interview

    Two interviews were required. My first interview was centered on experience. Questions included how to handle difficult guests, examples of up-selling, and drink knowledge for a position behind the bar. Finally, a personality test. Took about 30 minutes, asked the same questions in different ways to see if you're being honest.

    Interview Questions

    • "Sell me a Coke." I can think of great descriptions for lots of dishes, but a beverage? Without alcohol? That was the hardest question.   Answer Question

    Was a straight forward interview.

    Negotiation

    Wasn't much to it, as far as servers go you get your 3 bucks an hour and thats that. I made sure I would get at least 30 hours a week and that was it.
