    Hostess Interview

    Interview Details

    Applied online and was asked to come in for an interview a week or two later. There were about 10 other people who were also going to be interviewed, and you are called based on who gets there first. The interview was extremely laid back and he asked a few open ended questions. If they like you you'll most likely be hired on the spot and asked to go to orientation later that week.

They realize you do not have to be a rocket scientist to work there----though they do expect punctuality and hard work.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Buffalo Wild Wings in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    I went through 2 interviews, one with the house manager and another with the General Manager. They were both pretty short, about 10 and 20 minutes each. Really nice people, after my second interview, they said they needed to call both my references and they did just that. so make sure you have great references. The references can make or break you.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and went up to the restaurant asking if they received my application. I got an interview on the spot after they pulled my app. The interview was really casual. He asked what my favorite sport and sports teams were, my availability, and gave a few "if this happened, what would you do" type scenarios. Asked why I wanted to work there, etc. I came for a 2nd interview 2 days later and we negotiated my salary and discussed what I would be doing. Also set up a time for orientation.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    Salary. I would recommend looking up what the average salary is before you go. I was surprised when he asked and settled for 8. I looked it up after, and the average for GEC is 12.
