Server Interview

I applied in-person and the process took 6 days - interviewed at Hilton Garden Inn.

Interview Details – I had an interview with the Restaurant Manager. It went great, I felt like he was more nervous that i was. He called me back a few days later telling me that he would like to hire me if I was still interested. I went in and signed what seemed like a million papers. After I did that, I started working/training a couple days later. The process speed was good. I did not have to wait forever for a phone call.

Interview Question – Why should I hire you and not the last person that I interviewed?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I needed a job so I did not negotiate, just accepted it. I think the hourly rate should be at least minimum wage due to the fact that the restaurant is not that busy to live off tips.

Breakfast Attendant Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Sarasota, FL

I applied in-person and interviewed at Hilton Garden Inn.

Interview Details – Answered an ad on Craigslist for the Hilton Garden Inn in Sarasota, FL. I went in and filled out the application and asked to talk to the Food and Beverage Manager. Met with the Manager, he seemed evasive and was not able to describe the job very well. Claimed they split gratuities for functions but could not give a ballpark figure on what that might look like. Since he had apparently been there for years, it seems strange he mentioned it and then could not provide details. F&B Manager seemed to be lost in a fog. Tried to follow up with him and the GM and never heard back. Since then there have been numerous postings for the same job; obviously turn over is a problem there. Was not impressed at all with this place or the person interviewing me.

Interview Question – No difficult questions for this position; it is a relatively low level position where the duties are pretty self explanatory and anyone with any food service experience could figure it out.   Answer Question
