    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Famous Dave's.

    Interview Details

    The interview lasted no more than 15 minutes, the same questions were asked you get at every interview. The interviewer was very nice and friendly. I got to the interview, met with the manager in a back room, cracked jokes and made her laugh. Had the interview, 3 days later got a call, and offered the job. I applied for the job on a Friday, got a call on a Monday asking for an interview, went in on a Wednesday for the interview. Then got a call the next Monday with a job offer. The process didn't take long at all.
