Luby's Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
Very Easy Interview
Cook Interview (Positive Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Luby's in February 2013.
Interview Details – A manager sits down with you and asks you about yourself, your hobbies, your work experience, your background, your education and what you want to get out of working here. After that, if the manager thinks you're a good enough fit, he'll grab another manager to conduct the second interview which consists of the same material. If you're lucky enough for the General Manager to interview you the first time, he can hire you on the spot, but associate and assistant managers need another manager's approval. After you've been told that they believe you're going to be a good fit, you discuss pay rate and how to finish out the pre-hiring process online by completing slide shows about food safety and come into work on the first day they tell you with the ID you receive after completing the slides.
Interview Question – Why do you want to work here? View Answer
Negotiation Details – I was able to talk my way into an extra .50 an hour.
Assistant Manager Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and interviewed at Luby's.
Interview Details – Went through a recruiter, which was a new experience. He was able to get me an interview with the head of HR Hiring Department. Interviewed this individual in person days later. A regional president also joined in the interview about halfway through. The hiring process was fine. The GM at my training location was also incredible. It was working for my GM at my assigned location that was a nightmare. I wonder how many great, solid young managers have left and exceled at other concepts because of him. I know I'm living proof as one of them!
