    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orlando, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Darden in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was pretty straight forward – two phone interviews, a personality/aptitude test and then a on-site interview. The in person interview was about 6 hours starting at 10am and ending at 4pm. I had one-on-one sessions with 5 different interviewers that currently held similar roles at Daren.

    Most of the questions revolved around my background and questions about their restaurants current positioning.

    Brand Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Orlando, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orlando, FL
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Darden in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview with HR manager, followed by phone interview with Brand Director. Then a skills assessment online. Then onsite interviews in Orlando - I believe it was a total of 6 interviews (Brand Director level and up) plus lunch with a Brand Manager (for a peer perspective).

    Interview questions were primarily behavioral based - typical CPG-style interview.

    Server Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Orlando, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orlando, FL
    Application Details

    The process took 2 days - interviewed at Darden in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the position online and received an email saying they'd like to meet me and gave me a number to call. I called and was able to set up a one on one interview for the next day. The interview was extremely easy asking basic questions such as "Why do you want to work here?". They called me later that day saying they wanted me to come back for a second interview. They asked personal questions to get to know about me in this interview, still very basic. I received an email only hours later saying they were not interested in employing me.

    Hostess Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Orlando, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orlando, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Darden in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    I underwent 2 separate interviews with the bar manager and the general manager. I was told that I was interviewing for a bartending position. However, I was told at the end of the second interview that the whole process was actually for a server, not a bar tending position. It would have been more professional and considerate to inform the interviewee that they were changing the job title before the second interview occurred.

    • What would you do if the POS system broke down and no payments we're able to be completed?   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I was under the impression that I was interviewing for a bartender position but they informed me at the time of the offer that it was changed to a server position without informing me prior to the interviews.

    The process took a day - interviewed at Darden in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview consisted of 4 back to back interviews and an assessment test. Most of the interview questions were very general and it was more of a tell me about yourself type of thing. Overall, it was a good experience even though it did not result in a job offer.
