    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Joe's Crab Shack in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had 2 interviews. First one was just a basic interview, asked about work experience and why you think you would be a good fit. They invited me back for a second interview. They asked me to be able to tell them a little about the history of joes crab shack, be able to tell them what PRIDE stands for, and sell them 3 appetizers, 3 entrees, and 3 drinks. The second interview it's really just making sure your personality fits. The person who interviewed me the 2nd time was a different person, so she asked a couple brief questions about my work experience. She was really just looking at how confident you were answering the questions. Overall a fairly easy interview process.
    Also, this is my first serving job, so they really do hire off personality.

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Joe's Crab Shack in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was called by a host and asked to come in for an interview that day, which was perfect! I met with the host/hostess manager and we sat outside and he gave me three scenarios and asked me how I would deal with them. They questions were tough, but I apparently did well. When on this interview, think about some of your best and worst experiences and remember to keep the customers happy.
