    Hospitality Team Member Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA
    Interview Details

    I applied in person and was called a few hours later to come in for an interview the following evening. This company was the third interview I had ever had, so I was a bit nervous. I interviewed with the general manager and the process was extremely strange. He didn't really ask me anything of value -- other than what I go to school for and what my career plans were. Other than that, all he did was talk about himself and what the position requires. I was offered a job on the spot and was taken into the store to do my background check and fill out new-hire paperwork. I was really iffy about the job and the professionalism of the management, but I took it anyways because I was a desperate first-year, broke college student. I started that weekend.

    I interviewed online. The process took a day - interviewed at Sbarro in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    The manager explained to me about the job and that it was seasonal. He said I would just be handing out samples in the mall. He told me I'd be making $8/hour and then he asked me the typical questions in an interview. It was a few months ago so I don't remember them exactly. After the interview he said he would call me by the next evening if I got the job. I didn't get the call.
