San Francisco, CA

I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at California Culinary Academy.

Interview Details – First interview with the Executive Chef. Standard questions about past experience were asked. Focus on curriculum development as a new course was being established.Followed by a practical kitchen stage. Then a 45 minutes classroom lecture. Both these were judged by about 5-6 faculty members. Final interview with the Director of education.

Interview Question – No. The interview process was very standard .Questions were about past experience and course related.   Answer Question

Admissions Representative Interview

Admissions Representative

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at California Culinary Academy.

Interview Details – I interviewed with the Director of Admissions and the Preident of the school all in the same day. The next day they offered me the job and I accepted, a decision I will always regret.

Interview Question – The President of the school literally sat there and just asked me general interview questiosn that he was reading off of a script. It is extremely easy to just tell him what he wants to hear. I am pretty sure they would hire a horse if it could talk.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Absolutley no room for negotiations.
