    Restaurant Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Carrabba's Italian Grill.

    Interview Details

    Wasted time Over a two week period, emailing, calls, and phone interviews, just to be told they wanted someone with more casual dining experience. My experience is mostly military, but food service is food service. If you intend to provide all the necessary training then my background should not be that big of an issue. The recruiter I spoke with basically said that she thought the job would be difficult for me to handle, even before my actual interview. I hate for someone to tell me what I can't do. BUT!, in the end I was offered a job as a server��yay.. thanks for telling me what you think I'm worth. Pretty sure I won't be eating there anymore.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Carrabba's Italian Grill in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Called in for interview after applying online. Took about one week. Met with the general manger, waited about 10 minutes after interview time. Started with small talk and then asked mostly general interview questions. Why do you want to work for Carrabba'ss? How would you handle the stress of being a server? The total interview was about an hour, nothing too challenging and I was offered a job on the spot.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and got a call about a week and a half later to come in for an interview. I had my first interview with a manager on a Tuesday and he asked me basic interview questions like tell me about yourself, what do you like to do, why do you want to work here, what days/hours, job experience and things like that. He then asked me what day i could come back and meet with another manager.
    I came back two days later and met with a second manager who again asked me why i wanted to work here, my age, my job experience. we talked about problems at my other job, what he expects of me, what the job basically does.
    I got the job and will be going back in on Monday for a what i think he called an "on morning" im not sure.

    Interview Questions
    • They were all basic questions but when i told him about problems at my other job he asked "Give me an example of when a manager has been disrespectful"   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    We were able to negotiate my piercings. You can't negotiate hostess wages.
