    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Centerplate.

    Interview Details

    Met with two managers and the HR manager for an interview that lasted about 30-40 minutes. From there had a final interview with the GM who offered me a job. There was about a week between the two. Initially was told job was salary by HR but when met with GM was told job was hourly. Be aware that this seems to be SOP.
