    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurants in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Two interviews and I was offered the job about halfway through the 2nd interview. Both interviews were behavior based and "Give me an example of when you worked as part of a great team and what made it great." Don't be expecting a traditional interview where you talk about each previous job, why you left, etc.

    Interview Questions
    • I would say just the fact that I didn't have to talk about previous jobs was unexpected.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    They asked what I was looking for and I was offered what I asked for because it was in their average range.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurants.

    Interview Details

    All 3 interviews went well and everyone I interviewed with seemed really nice. After my 3rd interview which was with the COO I was told by their secretary that I passed all the interviews and I will be getting an offer as soon as they know when the restaurant is opening for sure. She also said she will call me every week just to touch base which she never did. I called and asked her a month later how everything was coming along and she said everything was great and to not feel like I am being strung along. I said ok, just give me a call when you are ready. I called again a month later because their secretary never called again and she told me that she is sorry she hasn't called and to not feel like I am being strung along. I found this really weird so I called the area supervisor who I interviewed with and he told me to call him back in a week and he will give me some info as to when the offer is coming. I called a week later and he told me that I never made the cut. I was very confused and upset especially since their secretary told me that I passed my 3rd interview and to expect an offer soon. I then called the COO and spoke to him and explained to him what happened. He told me that he was going to research it and call me back. It has been a month and he never called. Pretty sad when there is no clear communication within the organization and nobody even cares to call me back and explain. Their restaurant concept is really cool and I was really looking forward to working for them but after this experience I guess i'm glad that I won't be there working for them.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurants in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was referred by a friend and the interview was not a rigid as I expected. The manager was very upfront about expectations and standards, including the requirement of inviting guests into the wine club. She was honest about the hours and side work and even though so nights would be long, they would be well worth it.

    Interview Questions
    • Questions were very run of the mill. I believe they are looking more for attitude and presentation than technical answers. They want someone who genuinely cares about the work they do and how it effects guest service.   Answer Question
