    Submitted my application about 3 days before I was called. Went to the interview and was sat down inside at a table to wait for the manager. Very casual interview. Asked me questions about my passions in life and weaknesses and strengths. Questions seemed a bit repetitive.

    Line Server Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Cafe Zupas in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    They will ask you to come in for a 3:00pm interview. As good as it is showing up 10+ minutes before hand, it isnt necessary for Zupas because the OP/ GM is still trying to rap up the days sales and get ready for the night crew to come in. Make sure you are in the door by 2:55pm, but expect to wait till about 3:30pm for them to give your their undivided attention. the GM will sit down with you and go over your career goals, what you like about working in restaurants and what you dont like, and where you see yourself in the next year.

    SMILE. They are looking for people who can handle high volume, high stress tasks. They want to know that even on your good days, you still reflect a positive attitude. If all goes right, the interview should last about an hour.

    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Cafe Zupas in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    I went into Cafe Zupas on a friday and returned the application on a Saturday and walked away with a job the same day. When you return the application, you automatically receive an interview and might be offered a job if you schedule works for them. Just be outgoing and upbeat, because that is what they want to see. This job requires a high endurance for stress, and physical/mental strength. This job is stressful.
