Eventhough our company headquarters is in Dallas, I felt supported at the LAX property.Cons
Since it was the company's only account in California, the growth opportunities were very limited unless one will consider moving to other states where the company's other accounts are located.Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Application Details
I applied through other source. The process took 2 days – interviewed at Culinaire International in September 2009.Interview Details
Initially interviewed, turned down the role, then a year later was contacted again about a different role. The initial contact (second time) was via e-mail, then phone, then in person. Multiple interviews were done which is why it was a two week process before an offer was made. The interviewers were all professional and seemed excited about working for this company.
My advice to anyone interviewing is ask some hard questions. Get to know the company culture to ensure that you fit in. Some people do fit into this corporate or local culture, others will not. Ask a lot of questions and see if you can spend time shadowing the role (or another role) before accepting the position.Interview Questions
