    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Newk's Eatery (Baton Rouge, LA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The day after I filled in the application, I got a text and an email from the manager. I came in, was seated at a table and waited for about 10 minutes for the manager to come out. He was very loud and humorous, purposefully messing up my name when he introduced himself. He asked me 10 questions, most of them about a passion of mine that I'd mentioned and what I planned to do after high school. Also asked what my favorite place to eat at was, didn't want to hear Newk's as the location I interviewed at had only been open a couple of weeks. After he finished asking his questions, he said he liked me and wanted to hire me as a counter person and explained the job duties and that I would start off at $8.00/h. Then he brought out the GM for the store and explained that he was the GM for another location and was just helping out. It was very laid back.

    Interview

    Very basic process, the restaurant had not opened yet and they were still adding the finishing touches. I went inside and filled out an application on the spot, handed them my resume, and sat there while the manager read it. We then had a short conversation about my extra-curricular activities, things like that, and I got hired on the spot.

    Interview Questions

    • Most of the questions were very informal and basic, and they had to do with explaining things on my resume, things like that.   Answer Question

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty simple. I first met with an assistant manager and he was nice. Asked you typical questions about how your past skills will apply to working there. He also asked a little about my personal life and how it would affect me working there. The next interview I did was with the manager. He found out a little more about me and described the tasks of the job to me. After the interview I was offered the job. This is a good place for high school and college aged children to work. Very friendly environment.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Newk's Eatery in May 2013.

    Interview

    Submit an online application through a jobsite page. Called in for an interview with a manager and then called back for another interview. Both times the managers asked the same questions and were generally more concerned with availability and whether I had a car than anything else. It took about 2 weeks for them to call me in for the first interview, then they asked me to come back the next day for the 2nd interview. They told me I got the job and needed to come back the next day for orientation. All in all it seems that they only hire at the last minute when they need someone immediately instead of hiring qualified people on a regular basis.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a time when you went above and beyond in your last job.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They told me when to show up for orientation. They told me what my wage would be. There wasn't any negotiation.
