    Phone interview, followed up with an in person interview with managers. I was terrified because it was my first interview and would be my first job, but once I got there they made me feel relaxed. After it was done, I took a tour of the restaurant. Employees were very nice and professional.

    Server/Hostess Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  California, MD
    Anonymous Employee in California, MD
    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Golden Corral in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    At first the people were very nice and considerate the first interview, they made me think that I had a chance to be considered for the job, and then I find myself disappointed and unsure what had went wrong. I drive by a few weeks later and they had decided to only hire certain minorities. People were saying they are treating all their employees like crap.. And take advantage of them. But this is only my golden corral, I highly doubt all of them are this way. Sometimes you get the short end of the stick and some businesses are like that.

    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person. 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.
