    Host Interview

    Interview Details

    They are always hiring people for the front desk as hosts/hostesses don't tend to stay for more than a year in that position whether it be due to promotions or other reasons. The application is online, let them review your availability, and about a week later, show up in person during the slow hours between 2pm-4pm. You may call as well but showing up in person increases the likelihood of receiving on interview on the spot.

    Interview Questions
    • I don't remember them giving difficult questions. Just be optimistic to gain knowledge as you will be learning a lot of beers and food that they offer on their menu.   Answer Question

    I went in to the hiring center before the opening of the new store in Brea. The room was buzzing with anticipation and excitement, well dressed, good looking people from wall to wall.
