    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Cheddar's in June 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was pretty easy. We sat down in the restaurant and I was basically asked a bunch of questions about my character, and what I thought about the restaurant. I was even asked about my favorite food there, so just keep that in mind. The manager was very friendly and I didn't have any problems.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Cheddar's.

    Interview

    Easy & Manager was very friendly. You may have to go in for several interviews. Manager states its sometimes best when the applicant does not have server experience that way you learn Cheddars way of doing business and not get it crossed with other restaurants way.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Cheddar's.

    Interview

    Phone interview, in-person interview, hired. The GM will interview you if he cares. The other management doesn't really do anything in-depth. They just hire bodies. At the end of the day this company is horrible to work for. It is for people that don't know any better, and those who've burned every bridge with society. Look somewhere else for employment.

    Negotiation

    They tell you what they'll give you. Good luck getting a raise.

    Assistant General Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Cheddar's (Orlando, FL) in October 2014.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter to apply with Cheddar's. The process started off great. However due to the holidays things kept getting moved around. I had an interview on phone and in person at a location several hours away. I was called and offered a position in an area I was not interested in. They then took almost another month to schedule an interview in another location which the interview went very well. I was told I would make you an offer today but your money is too high so we have to discuss it. Then almost another month later I get turned down because "I was not a good fit" You cant figure that out for almost 3 months when everyone you interview with tells you they want you on the team. Very disappointing.

    Servers make a base pay of $2.13/hr so there was no negotiation. He did however let me know in the beginning while you are still learning the money isn't that good but once you're comfortable with the job and menu tips increase.
