    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at AMF Bowling.

    Interview Details

    Initially had a phone interview with an HR rep that lasted 45 minutes--very standard questioning and it focused primarily on my leadership style and problem solving skills. Followed that up with an interview a week or so later with the DM and a General Manager. Questions here were very standard primarily focusing on my work experience and my perceptions of the bowling industry. Mind you this process was from 2007 and the company has new ownership now!

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at AMF Bowling in August 2009.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed consisted of 2 phone interviews and a 1:1 interview with District Manager. They used a sccripted interview guides were used and centered around inter-personal skills. 1st interview was with AMF recruitor, 2nd was in person, and 3rd interview was on phone with regional HR. Sounds like good training plan, however they stated learning curve was 1 year for industry. Opprotunity for growth in 3-5 years.
    They perform a full criminal back ground check and Choice point Credit Check.
