    Interview Details

    Easy. However, I believe that I was the only one interviewed by all four managers. Simple questions many seeking employers ask. Have a lot of energy, after all, you're going to need it with all the tables and customers you're going to be touching base with, so you might as well show them what you have to offer, at the least.

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at On The Border in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    Pretty much a standard interviewing process. Face to face interviews are done by current managers and Area Directors. This company is looking to grow, so they want to see if you have some fire and motivation. They are looking for some game changers, not individuals who just maintain. Passion and ability to work hard are key to focus on.
