    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at BUCA in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    I walked in to apply. After filling out my application, I asked to speak with a manager while handing them the papers. They had no problem since it was a downtime in the restaurant. This is pretty typical of restaurant behavior so far. When the manager came, I answered questions about stress behavior, scheduling needs, income needs, and team-oriented work. I answered them all well and the manager told me to wait while she went to get the General Manager. He sat down and said, "First off, you got the job! But, why are you leaving your other job? Are you going to school?" That was pretty much it.

    Negotiation Details
    There wasn't a negotiation phase. All servers get basically the same option. Minimum waiter wages ($2.13-$9 per hour, depending on the state), no breaks, and the number of hours you deserve based on work performance and attitude.

Each themed eatery is an over-the-top recreation of a post-war Italian-American restaurant decked out with a hodgepodge of memorabilia. Geared for larger parties of people and event dining, the menu features Southern Italian-American cuisine served family-style to encourage sharing and conversation. Most locations of the casual-dining chain offer a lunch menu (smaller portions for single diners) in addition to its popular dinner options... More
