Pubstaff Interview

Interviewed at McMenamins

Interview Details – Best way is to fill out the application on the site. You'll get a call from HR, with a pretty lengthy interview, and if it goes well you'll get another interview with the manager of the pub you'll work at.

Interview Question – Not so much a question as a requirement. Know your specs early. They'll send you home with some, you need to know them when you come in.   Answer Question

Server Interview

McMinnville, OR

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at McMenamins in July 2011.

Interview Details – I applied online and was called back within a few hours and offered a phone interview. They asked some basic customer service experience questions and told me about their company in general. I was then offered a one on one interview which was bascially a longer version of the phone interview. Overall, it was a pretty easy process and the people I talked to were nice.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time when you dealt with an upset customer and how you handled it.   Answer Question
