    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Cheesecake Factory (Oklahoma City, OK) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online and this man named Joe called me the next day! I was so excited to have an interview with them because I had heard so many amazing stories about the place. I went into the cheesecake factory and waited an hour and 30 minutes but eventually I had to leave. They had another girl applying for my spot as well and a lot of the employees had already known her so they would talk to her and continue to reassure her that she was getting it and that it was just fine.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Cheesecake Factory (Tukwila, WA).

    Interview

    Applied online and got a call for an interview. Went in and had a very short and easy interview, he basically just explained the position. He set me up with a second interview, went in, and waited with other interviewees. He came in and notified us that all of our interviews got cancelled. So, got set up for another interview on the same day of the next week. Got a call the day before and got cancelled again claiming that everyone was on holiday. Never heard back.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Cheesecake Factory (Henderson, NV) in September 2013.

    Interview

    I filled out an application online that was very confusing and has tests that have nothing to do with the job. I then got a call and was interviewed over the phone and then asked to come in for another interview. I went to the interview and the person that was supposed to be interviewing me wasn't even there. I waited and was then interviewed by another manager and asked to come back for another interview. Finally i was offered the job.

    Interview Questions

    • There was a lot of mathematical testing. It was unexpected because I am a host and don;t have to use math at all.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I tried negotiating but there wasn't even a discussion.

    Interview

    Application process is long. You apply online and someone will call you if they are interested. First, I went in and they manager was extremely nice and seemed like she wanted to help me get the job right away. They told me to apply online and call their hiring manager. They scheduled an interview for the next day. I ended up waiting for about an hour before they found time to interview me. But, the servers, hosts, and other managers were extremely nice and continued to ask me if I wanted anything to eat or drink. I was finally interviewed. It was pretty standard. They scheduled a second interview on the spot, but I ended up declining the next day.

Describe a time when you had to handle a conflict/disagreement in a group work setting.).

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Cheesecake Factory (Friendswood, TX) in October 2012.

    Interview

    Fill out an application. They will call you and interview you on the telephone. If they like you, they will ask you to come in for an interview. After the face-to-face interview (if they are still considering you for the position), you will have one more final interview with the boss. At that time, he should let you know if you are hired. If he says that he will call you and let you know, you more than likely didn't get the job.

    Negotiation

    I was asked what I wanted to earn. No negotiation.
