Interviewed at HMSHost

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.

I applied in-person and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at HMSHost in April 2009.

Interview Details – I heard of the position through a friend who worked for HMS Host. I went directly to the HR office at Sky Harbor. I filled out my application and had a face to face interview. I was asked about general bartending knowledge even though I was not applying for a bartending position. I was hired. There was a drug test, criminal background check, and training. It took about 3 weeks before I worked my first shift.

Interview Question – I was asked around 10 questions regarding liquor / cocktail mixing.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Base pay + tips. No negotiation. Benefits were good.
