    Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Famous Dave's.

    Interview

    Easy process, but not very professional. Director looked hungover. The manager was late to the interview, even though the restaurant was not open for business during the interview. Tour of the kitchen was not impressive. Not well kept. They took over two weeks to get back to me, at which time, I had already accepted another position at an upscale restaurant.

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.
