General Manager Interview

General Manager
Virginia Beach, VA

I applied online and the process took 6 days - interviewed at Denny's.

Interview Details – Felt the person actually hiring me knew their business. However the environment of the interview was poor. Having other managers present in theory maight be a good idea, but their lack of interest in the process was a waste of time

Interview Question – Being asked the identical question by both people present was, again, a waste of time and effort. Following a format, but not listening   Answer Question

General Manager Interview

General Manager

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Denny's in August 2010.

Interview Details – You have to submit a resume. Go through a two interveiw process. Take an online or over the phone questionaire. Then they have to run a background check on you, verify references and require you to take a drug test. If the test comes back good you are offered a job. The process is very easy if you are a restaurant person because the people giving the interveiws are looking for those pat answers that make you seem as if you are the best thing since white bread

Interview Question – If you had a guest that complained about an employee and stated that they would not return if the employee still worked for you would you lose the guest or fire the employee?   Answer Question
