Manager Interview

Interview Details

interviewed with other GMs and an HR person. I was promoted from within and knew the right people. Outsiders don't fit in very well when they are hired. You should really understand all of the positions before you should manage here. Outside managers are not as successful. Even though I would love to see outside influence within the company.

    first some calls you and interviews you. then you interview with the district manager. Then the person that originally interviewed you over the phone calls you back and offers you a job. IF you don't get a call they decided not to hire you. Easy questions on the phone most are common sense

    The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Darden in May 2008.

    Interview Details

    The sent me to home office in Orlando after I had an interview with the local director of operations. I met one on one with higher management and they asked me about what I could bring to the company if I was accepted as a manager to their team and I told them how Iong I have been with the company and how passionate I am about the company's core values and what the company has done for me. I said what I learned over the years on my own and what knowledge I gained from working with other managers and GMs that I l would be easily transitioned into becoming a manager for this company because it was like second nature to me already.
