    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Kabuki Japanese Restaurants.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, got a call about ten days later for an interview. Went in and met the manager. She was VERY unprofessional. She sat me down at a booth in the actual restaurant literally next to a group of people eating. Then she flipped through a stack of 5 or more applications right in front of me while I was answered her questions. First she asked me, "Tell me about your experience." Then she asked immediately afterwards "Tell me about yourself" which is pretty much the same question since employers don't want you to actually talk about yourself, they want your job history/experience.

    As soon as I told her I wasn't available 2 days out the week, her face and friendly behavior dropped, which is frustrating to me since the online application didn't have an area where you could input your availability. She then asked me a couple of questions that I already answered in the application like if "I knew anyone who worked there." At the end of the interview, she kept on repeating "I don't know, I don't know" in front of me and sat there in silence for 5+ seconds while she considered hiring me or not. Then she told me come in for an interview the next day with a different manager. The next day, the other manager immediately offered me the job.

    A very uncomfortable and unprofessional interview experience.

    Inbound Technical Support and Sales Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Kabuki Japanese Restaurants in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    Played the waiting game for around 2 months after initial application submission despite the fact that I had two friends working in the company also trying to help me get an interview. First interview consisted of four tests. If you passed the 126 question test, you were granted a one-on-one interview a week later. 1-on-1 interview was more questions about technical knowledge (which I passed with flying colors). Waited another week and a half to get a 2 sentence email that said that they have chosen to go with another candidate.
