I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Carino's Italian Grill in May 2012.

Interview Details – Very informal; the manager didn't even check my references. walked up to me before I was even finished with the app and hired me on the spot, after asking me why i thought I'd be good at the job and some questions about my personality. It was surprising as I have no food service experience, or even experience at a real job. They just had me watch a few videos then bs a food preparation quiz. It took probably 2.5 hours and I start work the next day. My guess is that they are rather understaffed.
It seems really informal. I have no idea if it's gonna be great or awful. The management is all girls and they seem both really into it and really casual at the same time.

Interview Questions

Negotiation Details – I did no negotiating; i just wanted the job. I don't think the pay rate is very negotiable. It's just an hourly rate that depends on your state [ridiculously low; in texas it's $2.13] plus tips.
