Culinaire International Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
Director of Catering Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through other source and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Culinaire International in September 2009.
Interview Details – Initially interviewed, turned down the role, then a year later was contacted again about a different role. The initial contact (second time) was via e-mail, then phone, then in person. Multiple interviews were done which is why it was a two week process before an offer was made. The interviewers were all professional and seemed excited about working for this company.
My advice to anyone interviewing is ask some hard questions. Get to know the company culture to ensure that you fit in. Some people do fit into this corporate or local culture, others will not. Ask a lot of questions and see if you can spend time shadowing the role (or another role) before accepting the position.
Interview Question – Are you willing to work non-traditional hours? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Negotiation was straightforward and fairly easy to navigate through. My advice, go in knowing what your low number is and make sure you stick to it if you know it is fair.
