    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at P.F. Chang's in August 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online and within 3-4 days they called to set up a date and time for an interview with a manager. Arrived at the interview and was told another manager was going to interview me. Asked basic interview questions like availability, experience, and being in situations. I was told to call and schedule a second interview with the hiring manager but everytime I called they said the hiring manager was on vacation or to call the next day. Applied to another location, walked in to interview, had 2 interviews and got the job on the spot!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at P.F. Chang's (Princeton, NJ) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I had a very short and abrupt interview. They were not prepared for my interview when I arrived at 11 AM (the time they specified) which was the exact time they were opening so it was also uncomfortable with the staff

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at P.F. Chang's (Oklahoma City, OK).

    Interview

    Applied in person between 2 pm and 4 pm on Monday - Thursday. Was called back the next day to set-up a convenient time to come back for an interview. There were two interviews total. The first was with an Assistant Manager where basic questions were asked about past experience with customer service and questions pertaining to ones personality. The second interview was with the General Manager. Most of the questions mirrored those asked in the first interview, in addition to my availability and expectations. Overall, a very easy interview process.

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at P.F. Chang's.

    Interview

    I had formulated a well-written cover letter, which was inherently better than what most people submit. I hadn't had word back in well over a month, but eventually they called me up. I showed up for an interview in business casual attire and was hired on the spot.

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at P.F. Chang's (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    You fill out an application Monday-Thursday from 2-4 pm. They'll have you fill it out in the restaurant and will usually give you an interview right after you submit it back to the hosts. If you pass the initial interview they will set up a second interview with another manager sometime in the future.

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at P.F. Chang's in June 2014.

    Interview

    Had an initial phone screen with HR, a skype interview with the hiring director, and an on-site round of interviews with a half dozen people or so. The interviews were pretty easy. They tell you their background and ask you to walk through your career path making sure to pulse in the things you were most proud of and/or wish you could do over again. They will take you to Pei Wei for lunch. No curve ball questions. The offices are nice but lack a lot of the luxuries of larger businesses (no cafeteria or gym). They are truly business casual so I would be sure to dress up for the interview. If you get to an on site interview, 75% of the decision is personality fit. I think portraying yourself as curious, outgoing, and professional will carry a lot of weight.
