    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Paradise Bakery & Café in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, the next day I got a phone call asking me to come in for an interview. I met the manager and he was very straightforward that he was looking for people, and was willing to give me a chance. He then informed me I would start out as a salad maker, and that I would need to wear black pants and non-slip shoes. He also told me the company would provide a chef outfit and cap.

    GM called me and asked if I could come in on a ____ day to have an interview. Gave me a time and that was it. Sat in the dining area for her to come out and ask me questions. Uncomfortable interview area.

    Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Carmel, IN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Carmel, IN
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. 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 Questions
    • 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."

    Basic questions asked about customer service (if a customer had a problem, how would you take care of it?), general knowledge in the area (do you have any experience? what was your previous job like? why do you want to work here?), working as a team/with others (are you a sociable person?).

    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.
