Very Easy Interview
I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Joey Restaurants in December 2013.
Interview Details – Walked into JOEY Markville with a well written cover letter and resume. Told the guest service members at the front of the desk that I was applying for a back of the house job (kitchen, etc). They sat me down and I waited for 15 minutes because of the busy service. Two head chefs came and spoke to me, asked me questions about my resume and why I wanted to work there. Got hired on the spot :)
Interview Question – No difficult questions. Sound enthusiastic and smile if you want this job real bad. Provide answers that show you care, and show that you are really determined to growth and have a passion for working there. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – You start off at 10.50 + 1 (tips) , so 11.50 on start. As you progress and learn how the kitchen works, progressively you will be able to earn more.

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Joey Restaurants in April 2011.
Interview Details – -Come into the restaurant and are handed an application
-If you come in during slow times in the middle of the week (between 2 and 4) you are more likely to get an interview right away
-Sometimes a lower manager (called "leaders") interview you first. They ask about prior experience, if you've been on any teams, what your biggest weakness is and how you plan to overcome it, ect. They love to here that you are "coachable" / "moldable" / can take direction well.
-If they like you they will schedule you with a higher manager, sometimes right away if they are in the restaurant at the time.
-Similar questions as the first manager. They are looking for: charisma, creative answers, and confidence. They don't worry if you haven't had prior experience.
-Word of caution: I have heard that they are now requiring that all Hostesses be first trained as waitresses, so if you're under 18, you're unlikely to get a job as a hostess.
-If you get the job they will call you that night. If not, you didn't get it.
-If you aren't the brightest bulb I wouldn't worry, they seem to care more about charisma and looks.

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Joey Restaurants in May 2013.
Interview Details – I found the ad online and sent an email responding to it. A few hours later I was emailed by the owner and sent a questionnaire to fill out and email back. Typical interview questions "why do you want to work here?"; "What skills and assets would you bring to the company?" I replied and within a few minutes they had emailed me back looking to set up an interview. I was unable to at the time that they wanted me to come in but they were very helpful and rescheduled me. The actual interview was about 40 minutes long. The owner was incredibly nice, and friendly! Made me feel very welcome. At the end of the interview he said that they don't offer jobs on the spot, but gave me a card and told me the times to reach him if I didn't hear back from him after a week. But I got the job!!
Interview Question – They had a bunch of papers with different things on them (good wages, management, interesting work, etc) on it and said to pick the top 3 that are the most important, and then to pick 2 more. Other than that there weren't too many weird questions. Were really persistent in you asking them questions though! Answer Question
Negotiation Details – There wasn't much of a negotiation phase. I told them my wage expectations and that I was looking for full time work, and they accepted.

I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Joey Restaurants in February 2009.
Interview Details – Joey Restaurants is all about the people. My interview process was informal but I was expected to be very personable with everyone I met. In the service industry, especially a company that is so high-energy, it pays off to know about the business and its target clients as well as have a big smile all the time.
