    I worked at Darden


    If you work hard the earning potential is very nice for the hours you put in.


    Must be able to work with people that will not work as hard as you.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Darden.

    Interview Details

    Phone call from initial recruiter with basic questions, referred to one of the directs of talent acquisition. Scheduled 30 minute phone interview with this director. She was not very nice, too straightforward and not very interested in hearing my answers, I could tell she just wanted me off the phone. I knew- this was as far as I was going to go. She told me she'd get back to me within the week after talking to hiring managers. Weeks went by, no follow up. Got a canned response email about 3 weeks later that they had "found better candidates blah blah blah".

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing too difficult in this as I didnt get very far. They told me if I made it to the next step it would be a technical phone conversation with someone in the role, then a day on the campus meeting multiple managers.   Answer Question
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview
