    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Abuelo's Mexican Restaurant.

    Interview Details

    They placed an advertisement on Craigslist for a job working at Abuelo's. A manager asked me a bunch of questions about why I wanted to be a server. Then I took an exam that lasted about two hours, and the manager told me to wait a while before they got back to me. They called me like a week later, and I got the job.

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Abuelo's Mexican Restaurant in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    The staff seemed very friendly. They set up the interview right away. When I came in for the interview they asked a little about my work history. They then set up a test for you to take testing your iq and your personality. The test was easy enough but it takes a really long time. If you can pass the test then you will probably get hired.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Abuelo's Mexican Restaurant in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    Found job online and was impressed by the hiring process. They were thorough in introducing the company to me and very nice. It was like a family environment but still professional. The environment of the restaurant is very elegant but not stuffy. Interviewer was on time and they were ready for me. Not all restaurants do this. In fact, most don't.

    Interview Questions
    • Just about customer service. If you are in this field, you better be ready and willing to deal with silliness from the customers and employee. The most unexpected questions were about employee relations.   View Answer

    Interview Details

    Applied online and was called the next day to interview. Went to interview with assistant GM. Filled out written application and took personality test. Test a little lengthy but easy. AGM was friendly with just a few basic questions about my background, what hours/days I was available, ect. There was only the one interview and was offered the position on the spot. Training started that Saturday. Easy process and a pretty fun place to work too.

    Server Interview

    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Abuelo's Mexican Restaurant in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview was really awkward. We sat in a booth face to face and he asked my questions from the test I had to take to even be considered. I had to pass the test of course to even be interviewed. The test took about 30 minutes, it was pretty pointless. You could pretty much tell which answer to choose to make yourself look good. He seemed like he was pretty desperate for servers.

    Reasons for Declining

    Creepy dude, and I had to have over 2 weeks of training. I also had to serve the manager before I was even considered to go on my own...
