    Host Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Max & Erma's Restaurants in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    Sat down with General Manager and discussed experience and the best position for me to work in. Relaxed and informal. I had not experience other than coaching youth soccer and stocking shelves at a gas station so I was having a lot of trouble getting hired in the city. The manager noticed my leadership and coaching experience and we discussed how that is relevant to working on a team and with the general public. I could see that he really valued team-players and that impressed me. Once he saw that I could communicate in a friendly and effective manner I was offered a position.
