    A few weeks later, I was called for an interview with the Amusement Manager, which included questions about availability, customer service, and technical knowledge.

    After that interview, I had a second interview with the Asst. General Manager, who briefly went over my availability again, and then paired me up with one of the Senior Game Techs to do a walkthrough of the midway area. Following that, I was offered the position on the spot.

    Catering Sales Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Dave & Buster's in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, both also sought out directly contacting their recruiters with my resume. One (who wasn't handling this market) was very friendly and helpful. The other, who was was cold and painfully disinterested.

    She contacted me about a week later for a phone screen, which lasted less than 15 minutes and her bored disinterest was apparent even over the phone--and even though I have extensive experience in the field and expressed my excitement over their arrival in our market.

    Apparently experience, enthusiasm, creative ideas and flexibility weren't what she felt "worked" because I never heard anything further. Guess where in the position I did get I won't be referring clients? Because her lack of professionalism gave a bad impression of a new to the market business

    Interview Questions
    • Very standard questions. And given how thoroughly detached she seemed, she probably didn't bother to note my answers, anyway   Answer Question

    Server Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Manchester, CT
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Manchester, CT
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Dave & Buster's in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied for a store that was a New Open. The process took about two weeks from the initial application submission. I went to their website, filled out the online application for the server position. I filled out all personal information, and then immediately after I took a questionaire. Two days after the application and question I recieved an email saying I would be able to interview in what would be somewhat of a speed dating setting. I picked a date that fit me best. The day of the interview I went in to a room that was set up with chair and many managers and a closed off section. I was sat down and the first of three interviewers asked typical questions on work ethic and schedule, second interview sat down and asked about my serving abilities and where i've previously work, and third interviewer was more of the fun person, asking what would be the most exciting thing in life I would ever do and how to try to amp up a table and have fun. Each time an interview was over there was a bell that was rang to tell the managers to transition to the next interviewer. When all three interviews were done I sat down with the general manager who told me about the job, the expectations, and told me I was hired right there. I filled out paper work, and payment schedule, and was told when orientation was.

    Interview Questions
    • What is the most excited thing ever if you could that you would do. DON'T CHOOSE SKYDIVING, very none unique answer.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    None just gave the typical low server hourly rate. My focus wasn't the hourly rate though.
