    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Joe's Crab Shack.

    Interview Details

    I found a job posting on craigslist directing me to apply online. I filled out the online application, and heard back from the hiring manager two days later. I had my in-person interview a few days later. I just sat down with the general manager of the location in one of the dining room booths. He looked over my copy of my resume and asked why I was looking to serve after just graduating from college. He asked what I would like about working at Joe's specifically (I mentioned the dancing at work and the laid-back "beachy" atmosphere). He then said he'd like to offer me an immediate serving position, and asked when I could start my training. The entire interview took less than fifteen minutes, and seemed as though he was just making sure I could speak coherently and seemed friendly enough to serve people food.

    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.

    Interview Details

    I applied on snagajob on a sunday night, received call to come in for an interview on tuesday. The interview was scheduled for that thursday, it was farely easy. It was a general interview, was scheduled for a second interview that monday. Whole process took a week and a day. Second interview was moreso to see if your personality fit a Joes server and to ensure that Joe's was the right fit for you. Pays $2.13 hourly plus tip. The second interview was with the general manager, it took an hour and then he offered me the position. Seem bubbly/enthusisatic, intelligent, and excited to work at Joe's.

    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.
