I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at Thompson Hospitality in August 2010.
Interview Details – I was initially contacted by a current GM of one of their locations, and was scheduled for an interview with the one of the Vice Presidents of the company. The interview was held at one of the downtown restaurants. The interviewer was held up, but arrived with other members of the company, and they seemed pressed for time. I was immediately asked about my salary expectations, and my answer garnered no response. They proceeded to discuss the inception of the company and the philosophies and culture established. I was asked a few general questions,regarding my work history, but as I had come recommended, and there were time constraints the interview was relatively short. At the time, I though that a bad sign, but looking back, it was likely due to the heavy schedule of the parties involved.

Very Easy Interview
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 6 months - interviewed at Thompson Hospitality in March 2011.
Interview Details – I was contacted by a "Head Hunter" who bugged me for 3 months before I would give her a resume. After that I was bugged by the recruiter for 2 months. Finally, I had a phone interview. During this interview I was promised a pay increase and promotion within 6 months. I was told what my job duties would be, and that everyone at the company (even the owner) had reviewed my resume and they were very interested in bringing me on board. I had an in person interview with the COO of the company, during this interview we discussed nothing important to the job role. When I was hired I was told that there was a bonus program (of at least $1,000 a quarter) this is untrue, I was told there was a 401K program (I tried to contact benifits department numorous times and they refused to tell me anything about it), I was told that I would be reimbursed for moving and I was not.
Interview Question – They do not ask difficult questions, and they have zero insight into the food service world Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I was promised many thing that the company never followed through with.
