    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Pei Wei Asian Diner (San Antonio, TX) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Rather lengthy and unneeded questions. My interview was in the morning before they opened and the gm constantly was walking off, talking to other people, etc. I would suggest aiming for 2PM-4PM for an interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Pei Wei Asian Diner in May 2014.

    Interview

    The manager called me an hour or two after I submitted my application online, and set up an interview for two days later. I went in before store hours; the manager was very friendly and he asked a couple of questions like "tell me about yourself and your interest in Pei Wei," and "What was your favorite/least favorite part of your previous job." Nothing too scary. He told me about the company and our particular location, how much I would be paid, etc. I didn't have two forms of identification with me, but if I had he would have put me in the computer to start right then and there.
