Interview Details

The hiring process was simple. Show your qualifications, display relevant experience. I had to fill out one to two behavioral questions per category to send to the corporate level. The employer completed a background check on me, and I was subsequently hired.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Sur La Table.

    Interview Details

    I first received a phone call interview and then an in person interview with one of the chefs. The phone interview and in person interview were both very basic and asked standard questions. Overall, it was a breeze. I got the job and realized I didn't need to be as nervous as I was prior to the interview.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Sur La Table in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    had a phone interview then was sent a bunch of questions to answer. Was called a week later and had to interview with two separate managers. They conducted it in the park across the street which was weird. The first manager asked me a bunch of questions from a sheet. Stupid corporate questions like, "What is your greatest weakness" etc.... Then the second manager comes over and asks me the exact same questions. They were both very young and I thought I answered the questions well, but the job was only offering minimum wage and less than twenty hours. It's been two weeks and no call back. I am assuming they aren't going to call at this point.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Sur La Table in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Was called in for an interview with both the kitchen manager and store manager (separately on the same day, one after the other). The interview took place in the store, very casual, and quite uncomfortable for me. It was loud and I felt like I couldn't hear myself talk. The store is crowded and cramped and customers kept walking by, asking to go around us, etc. Afterwards, I received a call a week later with an offer to start that day. I accepted and started that day.
