    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Pollo Tropical in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied through one of the internet job seeker sites. It must have been a long time I did so because when they called me to interview I didn't remember I had applied with Pollo Tropical. Despite their having all my information they made me fill out another application, some of the information such as phone numbers I did not have on me. Basically asked to "sell yourself", I mentioned my many years in the industry and the fact I am very familiar with this restaurant being from Miami originally. They didn't seem impressed, another fact being both myself and hiring mgr were Hispanic but from different countries that typically do not get along probably had a lot to do with the selection...I just felt that vibe throughout as he was skimming through my application and seemed to want to be rid of me, said they'd call for a 2nd interview but never got the call and I wasn't expecting it anyways.

    I applied online. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Pollo Tropical in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    The process is fairly short. You ask for an application, fill it out, turn it in. They will call you back in a few days, you go in, and they just ask you some simple, standard questions, and if you seem alright, you will start working a few days later. They will ask you if you know about Pollo Tropical's history, but it's not a vital thing to know that they started in Florida.
