    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at 99 Restaurant & Pub.

    Interview

    The interview process was very simple. They mostly focused on what the job itself is like and will not make a case if you have little to no job experience. They inquire about your availability and make it simple to get hired. Very simple, very quick. I wish every interview was like this one.

    I applied online and within a few days they called me in for an in-person interview. The general manager and the manager both interviewed me back to back. They asked me questions on why I was applying and if I wanted to grow with the company. The process was fairly easy, just basic questions about time commitment and background.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at 99 Restaurant & Pub (Springfield, MA) in February 2011.

    Interview

    I walked into the Ninety-Nine in desperate need for a job. I requested an application and begin filling it out. Once complete, I requested the General Manager, so that I may turn in my application. As I was waiting for the GM, the District Manager enters the restaurant and strikes up a conversation with me. The DM asked me a few questions, about why I wanted to work at the Ninety-Nine and my experience working in the food industry. A few days later, I received a call from the GM, asking to come in for an interview. I went in the following day and the interview was conducted. I was asked several questions, most of which have slipped my mind at this point, however, I do recall the basic questions and the question of what was my favorite thing about the Ninety-Nine.

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at 99 Restaurant & Pub (Fall River, MA) in June 2009.

    Interview

    I worked at another location and I was moving back to the area, I was worried about finding a job so I asked my manager if it would be possible to transfer to another store location. He got in contact with the manager of the new store I would be applying to, and I was set to have an interview. The general manager at the time sat down with me and ask me very personal questions. She asked me so why are you moving back home. I answered that I lived in the ___ for about 1 year and I just wanted to move back, and she said well why that really doesnt make sense so I HAD to tell her I could not afford to live in my apartment where I was at anymore so I was moving into a more affordable house. She then asked me what my plans were going to be with my career and if I was going to be with the 99 for many years to come. She asked me what I was going to school for and when I would be going back. She also asked me if I got along with the employees at the other location. She was very rude and judgmental.

    Negotiation

    Just be yourself, dont take anything the manager may say to personally, you have to remember they will be working with that company for the rest of their life.
