    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Elephant BAR in August 2008.

    Interview Details

    Had a 1:1 interview with one of the managers. Was asked mostly generic questions and how I would handle several different scenarios, mostly having to do with "dissatisfied guests." Afterward, the GM came by to talk (which turned out to be the personality test).
