Very Easy Interview

Food and Smothie Maker Interview

Food and Smothie Maker
Las Vegas, NV

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Tropical Smoothie Cafe in November 2012.

Interview Details – The interview was very unprofessional and although the manager was conducting the interviews as well as the owner, the interviewer didn't really listen to the person being interviewed. Things could have run more smoothly.

Interview Question – There was no unexpected or difficult questions. They ask a few math questions to make sure the potential employee can do basic operations. It's not a trig test, it's basic operational mathematics.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiating. Your pay is your pay and if you don't like it then apply somewhere else. This isn't your career, it's a job to pay the bills.

Manager Interview

Davison, MI

I interviewed at Tropical Smoothie Cafe in March 2013.

Interview Details – Interview process was fairly simple, asked about experience and threw out a couple scenario examples to see how you would handle them. I don't know if it was just this franchise, but they seemed to give low offers for the amount of work and responsibility they wanted in return.

Interview Question – If you had an employee continually coming in late, what would your course of action be?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Not enough hourly pay

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Tropical Smoothie Cafe in August 2012.

Interview Details – I found the position on craigslist and applied for the position by sending an email to the store owner. I got a call back within a couple of days and was offered an interview. The owner and assistant manager met with me to discuss my customer service skills along with any other relevant skills I had to fill the position. I got offered the position on the spot and began work the next day. There was a lot of potential for growth within the store depending on work ethic and quality of work. I was promoted to supervisor after about a month and gained further advancements within the store as my tenure progressed

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Tropical Smoothie Cafe in January 2013.

Interview Details – The hiring manager pretty much accused me of just waking up because my voice was husky. He warned me that if I was late he would not interview me at all. Like I was a lazy bum or something. I feel like a total idiot for not making sure my voice sounded clear.
