Very Easy Interview

Cashier Interview

Cashier
Carmel, IN

I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Paradise Bakery & Café.

Interview Details – The interview was very informal, and the store manager was very rude and degrading about his employees during our discussion. That store manager no longer works there, as I am told.

Interview Question – Questions were short and simple, and mostly related to whether I was available whenever they wanted and would accept the low wage. The manager also told me outright that employees are not allowed to receive raises. Ever.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiations, which is normal for the service industry. It's basically "do what we want, or we won't hire you."

Cashier Interview

Cashier

Interviewed at Paradise Bakery & Café

Interview Details – It's very standard--they sit you down, and ask if you'd be good with people, how much experience you've had in the field, if you know how to close a shop, if you can be trusted, etc. They didn't do a drug test, and I wish they did, because a lot of the people I worked with smoked too much.

Interview Question – can't remember.   Answer Question
