Server Interview

Server

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Landry's.

Interview Details – 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.

Interview Question – What kind of pay do you expect to make?   Answer Question

Restaurant Manager Interview

Restaurant Manager

I applied in-person and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Landry's in October 2013.

Interview Details – I went through 7 people for various stages of the interviewing process & was told an offer letter was coming. My former boss gave me a great recommendation and they called to say I didn't get the job?! As a former Veteran, I'd like to know what happened, but I can't get anyone to return my emails and phone calls. I am frustrated with Landry's entire hiring process & can only assume the recruiter or boss gave the position to a friend or relative. I would like to know what went wrong so I can better prepare for the next job.

Interview Question – They asked for specific instances where I used my knowledge and experience, so the questions weren't difficult.   Answer Question
