    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Centerplate (Santa Clara, CA) in July 2014.

    Interview

    July 2014, I applied for the position and got a call an hour later. They asked if I could come in the next day.

    The interview was very casual. We did dress up business casual, but the interview felt like a normal conversation. At one point, we even sidetracked and starting talking about Baseball.

    A lot of the questions were basic. I was asked about my experience, why I think I should be hired over others, do you like the 49ers.

    There I had to answer how I would handles certain scenarios. And I got some common sense scenarios.
