Hostess Interview

Hostess
Las Vegas, NV

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Maggiano's in June 2014.

Interview Details – I applied online and a week later I got an email saying to make an appointment for my interview. The next few days after making my appointment was my first interview. This lady asked me questions such as what makes you qualified out of all the other applicants. She asked few more question. Asked a couple questions based off my resume. She told me what some of the host do. Interview short and simple. Two days after my interview I got call for another interview for the next day. The second interview was super easy compared to the first one. A guy interviewed me and gave my scenarios, and asked questions about my previous jobs. I got the job right on the spot. Definitely ask questions and make sure to tell them your not afraid of big parties and standing on your feet for a while. Super easy and short interview I have ever done.

Interview Question – If they give you scenarios on what would you do if you were on a wait time and a angry guest comes up saying he has been waiting for 25 minutes and you told him it would be a 20 minute wait how would you handle it?
Another question would be if there was an intoxicated person acting up that came in how would you handle that?
What does being a host mean to you?

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at Maggiano's in July 2011.

Interview Details – Came in and filled out a paper application, next day called me in to interview, sat down and spoke to the asst gm and then took personality quiz/iq test, after that was scored we talked a little more, I spoke to the gm and then they asked me to start the following Monday after the usual ID and shot records on file as required by missouri.

Negotiation Details – I applied as a kitchen person but only position available at that time was the banquet server position, I agreed to start there just to get in and then when spots became available in the kitchen they moved me in there.

Server Interview

Server
San Antonio, TX

I applied in-person and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Maggiano's in September 2010.

Interview Details – I had a personality test followed by a phone call a couple of days later. I think i had a personality test, anyway. i mostly remember being called in for an interview and the GM and i talked for a while about how i viewed customer care, the importance of people. the basic run down is "do you care about people or are you a sociopath?" If you truly care about people and great customer service, the hiring process is easy.
