    Concessions Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Levy Restaurants.

    Interview Details

    I started out as a Supervisor there and worked my way up. On my first interview we mainly focused on what experence I had and what I thuoght of the current operation. They are very interested in how you can keep all controls and if you have a problem with traveling during the off season. after my interview i was told that they would give me an answer in about two weeks then a week later they called me in for a second interview with Regional V.P. This was a little more nerve racking because he drilled me on my experence and staffing. If you tell them how much you would like to change your insulting the way they run their place but if you say your staff is perfect then whats the need for you then.

    The interview process was pretty quick, basic and easy, anyone can go through it. Just make sure your appearance and mannerisms are up to par and you'll get the job.

    Server Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Flushing, NY
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Levy Restaurants in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    A week after completing the application online for a position at the US Open, I was emailed for an in-person interview. The interview was open and there were about 30-40 people there. I filled out the paperwork, they called me into the room to talk to the recruiter, he asked simple questions like "What previous customer service experience do you have?" and "Why do you want to work for Levy."
    Immediately after, I was told I was hired and I would have to attend training in 2 weeks, then start. Also, everyone has to take an online alcohol awareness questionnaire before the class. It's really easy.

    Just dress appropriately (about 15/40 people there were wearing a suit) and have a smile on your face and it should go smoothly. Also, make sure you have at least two relevant experiences for the job you're applying to.

    It is pretty fast to be hired if you are recommended by someone else but im not sure about regular entrees. most of the people are hired by referral. The most difficult part is the drug test and background check but if you are clear you are fine.

    The process started with an email then simple phone interview. I was put through a short in person interview and later offered the job. There was a long wait between the interview and the offer, which I have learned is just normal due to the review process. All of the interview questions were basic and related directly to my experiences.
