I applied in-person - interviewed at Perkins Restaurant and Bakery in October 2010.

Interview Details – General manager was very kind, and listened to what I had to say. Didn't ask many difficult questions, he more or less told me what I would be doing because they were in need of a baker with the holiday months coming up and I had prior experience anyway.

Server Interview

Server
Cleveland, OH

I applied in-person - interviewed at Perkins Restaurant and Bakery in March 2013.

Interview Details – 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
