    Interview Details

    After spotting a new location being built, I went online to look at available positions. I applied for a management of the new location mid november, and received a call in February. The management from an existing location was being brought over to the new location, and hiring for the existing location had begun in order to replace them. After receiving a call in regards to setting up an interview, I was hired by the end of two weeks.

    When I went in for the interview, both the Regional Manager and General Manager gave me a tour around the restaurant, we discussed the operation in its entirety, and then we sat down to discuss what I wanted. It was a very comfortable experience. Mainly their concern was to make sure this was something I truly wanted. They do not want people working for them that will not enjoy their job or be unhappy, regardless of the need to fill a position. They understand the value of a happy staff and how it results in happy customers who will return again and again.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Zoe's Kitchen in December 2009.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed with the Regional Director for a Catering Sales Rep position. The interview was very short (about 20 minutes) and consisted of normal questions, such as "Are you comfortable selling to strangers?". I felt like the interviewer did the majority of the talking, but explained the position requirements well.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Zoe's Kitchen in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    After being referred for the job, I was called by the manager who asked when I would be able to come in for an interview. We set up a time for the next day. I dressed fairly casually, but nice, in khaki pants and a nice blouse. The interview was one-on-one between the manager and me. She started off by telling me about the company, describing its origins and menu, as well as the company's dedication to excellent customer service. She was very friendly, asking questions about my personality and previous work experience. She seemed to appreciate my previous experience in food service. I was offered the job on the spot and accepted.

    There isn't much negotiation. You basically start off at minimum wage, but they are pretty flexible about increasing pay after you've been working for them for a few months.
