Server/Dishwasher Interview

Server/Dishwasher
Rockford, IL

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Compass Group in April 2009.

Interview Details – Be open to working weekends and holidays. They are vey safety oriented-keep that in mind. One interview. 30 minutes. Be neat! This is a company that cares about the color of your socks-even if you work in the kitchen-so pay attention to your apperance.

My backgroud check took two months! But I think that's a record. I didn't mind, but it is unusual because I don't move around or had ever changed my name.

Interview Question – Why do you want to work here? Do you have any problem working with a racialy diverse team? Do you understand the importance of confidentiality?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was told the job paid $8.50/hr (min wage?) like negotiation was out of the question.
