    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Thompson Hospitality in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Very chaotic, unprofessional and frustrating. Spoke with the recruiter several times before being able to come up with a good time. I spoke with the recruiter at least 3 times before he could come up with a time the President was available. The process was very chaotic because they were disorganized and the president decided he didn't want to interview me probably on sight.

    Chef Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed 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.

    Food Service Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Application Details

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Thompson Hospitality.

    Interview Details

    several phone interviews two with a recruiter and one with the corporate executive chef, then a practical interview involving cooking a meal for one, 4 oz. of protein, 3 oz. of starch, and 3 oz. of vegetables, this part of the interview process is critical due to the market in which they service, as well as a written test, preferred at the location you are applying for.

    Interview Questions
    • they lay out everything in the pre paperwork that you have to sign before the interview, so nothing was unexpected and the test questions are not hard, at all just detailed.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    it was fairly simple, they offered a number they were looking to pay for the position, after my phone interviews and practical interview they cam with another number that was higher than the initial and I accepted
