    Pros

    Though the training may seem a bit over kill it makes you a strong server/bartender which will only help your sales increase and the guest to have a better experience.

    Cons

    Sometimes there are too many rules because corporate restaurants must follow certain guidelines. It can be frustrating to do everything by the book because you feel like a robot.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of always giving negative feedback dont forget to give praise.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at ChartHouse in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    I applied for a serving position. I downloaded an application online to expedite the process which is always good to do whenever you can. It shows you took the initiative to save them some time as well. Manager was very pleasant and friendly while still being professional. I really liked that he didn't have that stiffness that high end managers sometimes think they should have. The restaurant was just opening and the hostess seemed a little disorganized and scattered. The interview didn't take an excessive amount of time, I think that in general, you either get a good feeling from a person or not and we seemed to get along well right away. I then was interviewed shortly by the general manager and she was just as friendly. I was pleasantly surprised as some high management females tend to overcompensate on the harshness to prove themselves as women bosses. I left the interview feeling very good about the down to earth and kind attitudes of the management, like this was a place I could picture coming to work every day. They called me the following week to offer me a position and let me know they appreciated my thank you note that I had immediately sent after the interview. I know that seems old school but I still do it to all places that I interview. It makes you stand out because not many servers think they need to do it.

    Interview Questions
    • None were difficult. It was very simple and basic. None of the "tell me about your best or worst dining experience" or "what are your weakest qualities".   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I was offered a hostessing/part time cocktailing position until a serving spot opened in a few weeks. The hostessing pay was incredibly low and there was no way I could take the pay not being given a promised date of when I would be a server. Also, I had other full time serving offers.
