    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Dave & Buster's (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Filled out an online application, called in for an interview. The guy that was supposed to interview never showed up, so I had to be interviewed randomly by a different manager. Interview went great and said he would contact me to see if we can get a second interview with the other managers. Never gave me a call back, but I called over and over until I got a hold of someone...eventually leading me down.

    Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Dave & Buster's (Clackamas, OR) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online received an email within a few days to set up a phone interview with a recruiter. The interview went good and once I had filled out the assessment test online, I received another email with a day and time to meet in store with the store manager. The manager seemed nice, informative and I thought the interview went great. I really liked the environment, i was introduced to everyone on staff that day. I feel like the only things i didn't like about my interview was when I asked about the hours, how it worked, etc. I was told that I would be hired as a 50 hour a week manager, but I would be working at least 60 and upwards of 70 hours a week. That a lot of hours to work in a week with so many managers working in the location in my opinion, and a lot of managers come in on their days off to do five hours of admin work to catch up. I thought this was an excessive amount of hours, to work regularly. I didn't say I couldn't do this but I honestly think I blew the interview by mentioning at the end in conversation that I have a toddler who would be in day care. While I am more than qualified for the position since I have similar work history as a general manager, I was not hired and no one has yet to fill the spot. I was a little disappointed because I feel in my heart this was the reason I wasn't selected, because the manager kept saying how this is the perfect job for single people, or with no children at home.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked about my work history, what I did, what my role was, etc. I was then asked questions related to P&L since I was a store manager before. I was asked training questions as well, my style, etc.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Dave & Buster's (Grand Rapids, MI) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The interview went GREAT! The mangers were super nice. They actually talked more about the company rather than ask me questions. Dave and Busters is new in the area so most people don't know much about it. Once I got to interview with the gm he actually talked me into being a waitress instead of a host!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Dave & Buster's (Grand Rapids, MI) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and went into the hiring site. They held speed interviews with various managers then they made a job offer. I've been offered other employment and decided that would be a better fit due to higher pay and when the other job would be able to have me start. Also, as part of employment with Dave and Buster's your not allowed to drink there on days you do not work there. It's understandable but kinda disappointing and make it's better to visit then work at.
