Crew Interview

Crew
Las Vegas, NV

I applied online - interviewed at Jack in the Box in August 2013.

Interview Details – I came in to the interview to find that there were 3 managers hiring from 3 different locations. while waiting for the interview, the managers were very unprofessional. They were yelling across the restaurant, making jokes, and snickering. I was hesitant to work for any of them, but I went up for the interview anyway. It was short and sweet and I think they judged me immediately and I knew that they were not interested when they said they would call me for a second interview when I was seeing people getting hired on the spot. Overall bad experience, probably not going to try my luck with any other Jack in the Box from this day forward.

Interview Details – Cleanliness and personal hygiene is paramount! Good thorough hand washing while handling food is very important just as keeping a work area clean. Sneezing and coughing in your hand spreads germs so hand washing is required. Set a good example and save your money for things you really need...

Interview Question – You will know when it is time to move on and forward. Until then, learn as much as you can about the food, equipment and people skills...   Answer Question
