    Interview Details

    Filled out the application online and got called the next day for an interview. When I got there for the interview there were a lot of ppl there for different positions at different stores. I was interview by the food and beverage manager. Pretty much a basic interview for your typical restaurant. I was hired on the spot. Filled out some paper work and came in a week later for my orientation.

    Application Details

    interviewed at HMSHost in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    i applied online a few days later got a job interview call. they sat me down in the food court area and went over a sheet of questions. stuff like " what did you learn most from your previous work experience". and "tell me the last time you had good/bad customer service".
    got a call to be hired 2 hours later.

    they set up an orientation, which we went over company policies and then i went to get my security badge and put in my fingerprints. im still waiting on this. my next step is to go to training after i get cleared.

    they said they drug test theyre employees but it doesnt make sense to wait after training to do it.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at HMSHost in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interview seemed to go well. I talked to a hiring manager on the phone and then had an in store interview at the travel plaza. She said she thought I was qualified for the position and told me that I would get a call for the next interview, as the next person doing the interview had a busy work load. That call never came.

    Interview Questions
    • My personal most difficult question was what I wanted to do in the future, as I have a degree in something completely different than what I was applying for.   Answer Question
