Interview

Applied online, got an email the next day to call and set up interview. First interview with manager, than with GM. The GM forgot about the interview, and was busy with something else. Waited an hour, and the kitchen manager asked me a few questions because he felt bad I waited an hour for the Gam. Told me to call but next week if I didn't hear from them.

    Interview

    The interviewing process at yardhouse is very quick, spoke with 4 managers in one interview. The training process is what is extensive. 8 days of training, paid, but it is hardcore! Definitely worth putting the time and effort into learning everything though!

    Interview

    I was applying for a new restaurant opening. Because of that, it was a mass interview with a lot of people going in and out. It began with a small group "peer tour" of the new restaurant. They had the training schedule available. I talked to a manager who ended up only being at that store for 2 months. He asked about previous experience then I was passed off to the store's general manager who asked about my past experience with the company. I was hired offered a job on the spot.

    initially applied online, was asked to fill out a personality quiz online, then went in for a one on one interview with the assistant manager. After that was asked to come back for an interview with the general manager but this was rescheduled 3 times because the general manager kept going out of town for vacation and other personal reasons. After the interview with the general manager, I was asked to fill out paperwork with 4 other hires and was hired that day.

    Interview

    Standard interview. They set a date and time, then just ask you questions. The interview was during lunch hours so don't be surprised if the manager gets called away to take care of another issue

    I applied online and then was emailed when selected for an interview. I called the manager to set up the interview. I went to the interview and she said that she really liked me and thought I would be a great addition to the team and asked me to call on Friday to schedule a 2nd interview with the general manager. I called three times on Friday and the general manager was never available (apparently, they were setting up for an event), but I left a message every time I called. No one ever called me back.
