    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Golden Corral (Chesapeake, VA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    It was very brief and straightforward questions. The manager giving the interview was very polite. The resturant must have been busy that day, because it did take the manager 30 minutes to get to me. After my first interview I had a second that was with a group of other newly hired coworkers and we filled out this large pamphlet which took a little over an hour. And then last but not least, I had to do this computer questionarie that litterally took 4-5 hours to complete, which was so boring.

    Interview Questions
