    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Perkins Restaurant and Bakery (Orange City, FL).

    Interview

    It was an open interview but the interviewer rarely asked any questions. Basically he just said "you're not gonna have a social life if you work here." It just wasn't a great experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Perkins Restaurant and Bakery (Los Angeles, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by the recruiter first asking general background questions about my previous employers. The recruiter then passed the application on to Café Rio who contacted me within 24 hours to set up a phone interview the following week.. The HR representative called at the appointed time asking me questions about my past employment, they asked me to describe a tough situation and how I handled it. Another question was describe your day as a Regional Manager. A concern that I had was the HR representative conducted the interview from home with a child fussing in the background during the whole interview. I felt that I did not get the full attention of the interviewer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Perkins Restaurant and Bakery.

    Interview

    If you are a warm body, the job is yours. Went in with a resume, met with a manger on spot and they had a 1 on 1 interview then called later the same day. They tried not to come off as too desperate but the truth is there is a high turnover in restaurants.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Perkins Restaurant and Bakery (San Diego, CA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Very relaxed, out in the open. The manager seemed to just be having a normal day to day conversation at first. The questions were really basic, mostly just getting to know you type. It was an overall good experience but unfortunately they were looking for someone with experience and at the time I had none.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Perkins Restaurant and Bakery (Cleveland, OH) in March 2013.

    Interview

    I have only retail/hotel experience and worked at a panera. i was surprised when he wanted to interview me. the place was like 25 min away. i didnt realize how far it was and was exactly on top instead of 5-10 min early like i prefer. he accused me of being late and i told him im not normally late and he called me a liar. rest of interview was awkward and he went over every detail of my application, which no one usually does. i hate repeating myself. it's like just read it yourself. then he told me he was trying to hire for days and i am available nights. why would you waste my time. then he told me i would make more there on 3 hr shift then 8/hr at a hotel. this is false. at only $40 in tips a night on a 4 hr shift you would bring home 44 a night 4x a night which is still less than i would get paid at a hotel. thought he was rude and unprofessional. if he offers me job, i will not take it
