    You have to take a personality test and if you pass it they will call you for a second interview. At that time you interview with the service manager and he asked you typical server questions. How do you make a quest have an incredible experience? How do you define going above and beyond?

    Basically was asked if I was a people person, and if I had a conflict management style, What did I think about the Phrase " The Customer is always right" ? It was a easy going laid back kind of interview. One on one and nothing unexpected was asked.

    Interview Details

    I applied in person by just walking in and asking the GM if they were doing any hiring at the moment. The GM said yes they are looking for a host so I filled out my application on the spot and handed it directly to the GM. I drove home and before I made it in the drive way the GM called me and asked if I could start next week.

    Interview Details

    I was called into an interview with a shift manager. They asked me typical questions like, "How do you describe customer satisfaction." and "Tell me a time in which you dealt with a difficult customer and what was the result?" After that I was invited for a second interview with the General Manager in which questions were more personality focused like, "How would you describe leadership?" After that I was offered a job and invited to attend orientation.
