Very Easy Interview
I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Cheesecake Factory in June 2010.
Interview Details – Came in and applied and they interviewed me the same day. One of the managers asked me around 20 question, to see how I would react on certain scenarios. After the interview they told me to show up for orientation the next day.
Negotiation Details – The General Manager offered me an hourly rate and since it was my first job and I was naive I accepted.
The process took 1 week - interviewed at Cheesecake Factory in April 2011.
Interview Details – When into apply and got an interview with one of the managers right there. The interview went really well, he was an extremely nice guy and made me feel really comfortable asked me questions like; how would you provide customer service? what would you do if a customer freaked out on you?. Then I was told to come in for another interview, so I came in and they didn't have enough time for me so I have to come back in a few days. Come back and I met with another manager this time a woman, extremely nice and she gave me a personality test. It was so easy just questions like; are you detailed oriented? do you believe you learn something new each day and if so what?. The interview when well then I had to wait an hour for the GM to come in. The GM's interview was extremely hard he asked questions like; have you ever done something wrong and got away with it? what do you know about the cheesecake factory? why do you want to work in hospitality? why do you want to work here? what do you aspect from us if you were hired? (this one caught me so off guard). He was really formal and not very friendly unlike the other interviews.
Interview Question – Why do you want to work here? Answer Question
The process took 3 days - interviewed at Cheesecake Factory in May 2010.
Interview Details – There were three seperate days for this interview. The first day was with one of the managers who just talked to you about your resume and what position(s) you were applying for. If he liked you enough he would invite you back for a second day. On the second day you met with him again and answered questions about how you work in different environments and how you would handle situations. This was an hour long interview. After the interview he would write up an assessment about what kind of worker you would be and take it to the rest of the managers and the GM. If they approved you would then meet with the GM to again go over your resume and the kind of work that would be best suited for you. At the conclusion of this interview they will tell you what position they're considering you for (I interviewed for one but was offered another) and that they will call you in a few days.
