    Kitchen Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cincinnati, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cincinnati, OH
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Golden Corral in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Very fast (s/b in all caps)!!! Worked with a 3rd party recruiter who was wonderful. She mainstreamed the entire process. The next day the DM called for a phone interview and a one on one interview was scheduled before I was off the phone with him. From initial conversation with recruiter until I signed on the dotted line was only 8 days.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult part of this job was the initial culture shock. The amount of food that people consume from a buffet with 1 flat price compared to a made to order meal is mind boggling. There is so much waste.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They matched the salary of my previous job. There wasn't a lot of negotiation.
