    Cook On Tour Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Cirque du Soleil.

    Interview Details

    Applied on line. Got called immediately. They wouldn't commit to a salary offer in e-mail, only on the phone. Pretty shady. Very limited interview. Didn't ask important questions pertaining to experience.

    Negotiation Details
    They don't like to negotiate. They also don't really know anything about food service so they don't ask the right questions. Many people who got the same job weren't qualified and stayed working for years and years. The interview process was far too simple. They called the last place I worked for a reference and they spoke with the dishwasher. Not a joke. They didn't even know who they were talking to. Good thing the dishwasher liked me a lot :)

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Cirque du Soleil.

    Interview Details

    Initial perception of people was very positive. Everyone seemed so happy to work there at that time in the company's history. Interview process seemed very organized and thorough. Phone interview from HR, then panel interview, then skills testing then another panel interview. By the end though I had enough information to know I would fit well and wanted the job.

    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation was possible but I didn't push enough.
