Host Interview (Positive Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Champps Americana in August 2013.
Interview Details – The interview process has changed since Champp's went bankrupt for the second time and was bought by One Last Call (very ironic right?). I walked in and was hired on the spot now that their desperate since almost 20 servers, bartenders and hosts quit they at first did everything online. Now they have a computer set up with the General Manager desperately looking for anybody.

Server Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Champps Americana in June 2010.
Interview Details – I was wearing a striped button-up and jeans and applied on a whim (I'm female). I brought in my application without a resume and the general manager happened to be standing at the host stand when I walked in. He invited me to come sit down so we could go through the application. I had originally intended to start as a hostess but he said that he had enough and didn't need any, and instead offered me a position as a server. I accepted and was hired on the spot, after talking for roughly 5-8 minutes.
