I applied in-person and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Golden Corral in September 2010.

Interview Details – There were exactly two interviews that I partook in. The first one was in person and the second one was a group panel interview. The managers were all very nice and friendly and actually wanted to see you succeed in life. They hire people with motivation and drive. They don't want their employees to stay there forever. They want it to be a stepping stone to get you to where you want to be.

Interview Question – What are your overall goals and what do you plan to do when you get older?   Answer Question

Cashier Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Golden Corral in August 2013.

Interview Details – Applied online; was called about about a week later for an interview. Spoke with a friendly manager who couldn't locate my online application so I filled out another (more like a questionnaire than an actuall app). She asked me about my work experience; and why I left previous employers. She told me what was expected of me (be nice to coworkers and customers, multi-task, be reliable and on time). Once I agreed she hired me on the spot.

Interview Question – Was asked why I left a job that I particularly hated.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Didn't need to. The pay was 55 cents higher than my last job that had more duties, so I accepted.

I applied online - interviewed at Golden Corral in January 2012.

Interview Details – First I got an email to schedule an interview. Then I went to the local store and had the interview with the DIrector of Operations. He thanked me and called me back and said he wanted to hire me but he needed me to interview with another person. This interview was by phone. I did the interview with her and she called the director of Ops and said I was a good match. He called back with my start date.
