    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
