    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Joe's Crab Shack.

    Interview Details

    I went through a two-hour group interview with eight other candidates. I had past restaurant experience and dance experience (was even in a performance dance group and working at a restaurant at the time I interviewed). They strung us along through telling them about ourselves, having us tell them what we would do in a zombie apocalypse, having us make up a Joe's Crab Shack cheer, and a bunch of other stupid stuff....then ended up hiring the three people who knew someone within the company. These kids had no work or dance experience, were not enthusiastic during the interview, didn't even dress properly for the interview, and it was so painfully clear that they were only hired because they had connections.
