Waitress Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Bob Evans in March 2012.
Interview Details – I had two interviews with Bob Evans. The first one was a lot more easier than the second one. I applied in person and gave my app to one of the managers. He started to go over it with me and asked me to come in for an interview on a friday. The manager that interviewed me exuded positive energy and was constantly smiling, making me feel more comfortable and relaxed. He asked basic questions (I believe only 3 questions were asked in total). He then told me to come in for another interview. I felt confident that I had gotten the job and the second interview would be twice as easy. Well I was wrong! I came unprepared and often tripped on my words. The man who interviewed me the second time was stiff and everything seemed scripted which made me a little uncomfortable. I guess he had gotten bored and talked to another manager that made her way over and started interviewing me. I finally noticed that it was open-house for more potential employees and decided to step up my game!
