    Executive Chef Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Landry's (New York, NY) in July 2015.

    Interview

    The process took about a month. I interviewed with 3 different concepts with probably close to a dozen different people after all was said and done. 2 of the locations I interviewed for already had someone in house or local that was going for the same position. Everyone I spoke with at Landrys was very nice and easy to talk to. Professional without losing that personal touch. It was a very enjoyable experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Landry's.

    Interview

    I met the HR reps at a job fair and had a good rapport with them. I gave them a resume and was contacted shortly afterwards, within a few days. I interviewed within a week and went through a few phases over 2 days. I met with the restaurant manager, then then regional manager right afterwards. The interviews were not extensive, maybe half an hour.

    Interview Questions

    • I don't recall a specific question. But during my second interview, I was placed with two higher level managers. Not sure if it was to intimidate or to assess my comfort level with a more than one person. Both were asking questions back to back.   Answer Question

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Landry's (Port St Lucie, FL) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Easy, talked about people we knew. Very informal, very unprofessional, and very fast. Obviously need people because of being a terrible corporation to work for. The people I met were awesome, but at least 80% were not willing to do a single thing extra and it condoned laziness like the plague.

    Travel Counselor Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Landry's (Houston, TX) in September 2014.

    Interview

    1.5 hr chat. Processes not up to industry standard. Spoke w/ Travel Manager who didn't seem to want to change (Been there 18 yrs, she said). 4 person operation including manager. Increased automation seemed to be out of the question. Talked a bit down to me. See this position advertised almost every 2 months, so something is wrong. My opinion is not the agent but management. Think my experience scared her. 20+ years on Sabre/ Sabre RED but still needed to take a test. WHAT?

    Server Interview

    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Landry's.

    Interview

    Interviewing to be a server at Landry's is very similar to most restaurant interviews. The GM of the restaurant will sit with you to discuss the applicant's previous experience and expected wages. Landry's is a corporation that wishes to provide each guest with the same experience every time that a guest patronizes one of their locations. The applicant will receive a handbook and all necessary starting paperwork. From there, a starting training day will be negotiated and the employee will be handed their apron.
