Application Details

I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at P.F. Chang's.

Interview Details

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 went in for a server position but was told they weren't hiring for anything for host. It was pretty basic. Tell me about qualities, etc. What restaurants have you worked in? What capacity? How did you hear about P.F. Chang's? What type of hours are you expecting? Are you able to work full weekends?

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at P.F. Chang's in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    It was pretty easy for me. They ask you pretty standard questions, what would you do if you were in this situation? How would you handle a disgruntled guest? What was your last serving job like and why did you like it? It was easy because I had dealt with all of the situations before so I could answer them with experience. They are pretty picky about who they hire. They want people with personalities, who are outgoing, charismatic and confident.

    Interview Questions
    • There wasn't a difficult question but for someone who does not have a lot of service experience some of the situational questions might trip you up. Just think of the most reasonable solution and if you can't just say you would grab a manager to figure out what to do next.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation, servers make the same no matter what.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at P.F. Chang's in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    Interview was easy, since i was recommended by someone, it wasn't a formal interview process, only the basics such as my available hours. after the interview, had an orientation day, the training process is very intense. They gave me a quiz every day during training. training is 5 pay days and also they give you all the food and drinks to try. The last day i took the test, if you don't pass the test , you don't get the job, but in most cases they will train you again.

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at P.F. Chang's in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    I walked into the restaurant with a resume and asked for an application. They ask you to fill it out entirely there. Once you complete the application, if it's a slow time, they bring a manger out to speak with you. I was asked about past work history and experience and then hired on the spot.

    Interview Questions
    • If you've worked at a P.F. Changs before this one make sure you remember mgmt names, etc. It's a small circle and they will ask about previous managers because most of them have worked together at some point.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation. Minimum wage and then tips!
