Human Resources Manager Interview

I applied online and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Levy Restaurants.

Interview Details – 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.
