    I interviewed online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Joe's Crab Shack in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    You have to call them to set up an interview. Put application in online, then call the store. They will not call you. Most jobs you get a call. I called them and had an interview next day. Two days later I had a second interview and was hired on the spot. They are ALWAYS hiring because Dave gets fire happy from time to time. He is ALWAYS understaffed.

    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.

    I interviewed in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at Joe's Crab Shack in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    I walked into Joe's Crab Shack in the summer and filled out an application at the bar and I was hired right on the spot and started work the next day. Best interview process.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult question is why would you want to work here. Since I am so high energy that is an easy answer. Most people would not know what to answer when considering why you want to serve or clean up food. As long as you like being around people and can enjoy yourself then this question will not stump you, but if you are just looking for a job to have a job don't even try Joe's because they dance and have fun. This is a place for upbeat workers.   View Answer

    The only negotiation I have to make was hoping that the restaurant would work with my school schedule.

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Joe's Crab Shack in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    I went in to the Human Resources building of the Kemah Boardwalk, and filled out an application. The application included all of the basics like your work history, hours available, and that sort of thing, as well as the establishments within the boardwalk you would like to work at. Once I turned it in, I was told that Joe's was interviewing at that very moment and to head on over.
    The manager saw me right away and sat down with me at a booth and interviewed me for a total of 5 minutes before "hiring" me on the spot for orientation, which is where most people actually get weeded out. Orientation lasts for 2 weeks and consists of learning the very intricate menu to a T, how the food is prepared, specials, how to sell Landry's cards, uniform etiquette, what is in all of the alcoholic beverages as well as how they are made, the separate Happy Hour menu, how the tables should be set up, as well as memorizing where all of the 111 tables are. There were bi-daily tests that you were given one chance to re-take if you had failed before you were fired. Then there was the big test over everything, which you were also given two opportunities to pass. If you passed, you got the job.

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Joe's Crab Shack in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    I submitted an application online. I called later that day to ask if they were hiring and the hostest told me to apply online then call and ask a manager to review my app. I called back later in the day and asked if someone reviewed my application. The manager said he normally doesnt review them until later in the day but since I called, he did it on the phone. He asked me if I could come in for an interview the following day. I met with the assistant general manager. He reviewed my app with me and asked normal questions. He asked me "what do you bring to the table?" or "why should i hire you?" He then asked if I could come back to speak with the GM.
