    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants (Pittsburgh, PA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online and was contacted very quickly, but waited over a week for the interview to be scheduled. I was told I would meet one of the managers (not specified) at their restaurant for the interview. On arrival, staff was rude and bored. After a 10 minute wait, one manager (in a hoodie and jeans) was found to speak to me, but he said he wasn't doing the interview. After waiting 5 more minutes, the interviewing manger arrived. He did not have my resume, and apparently had never seen it. Glanced at it briefly and set it aside. Seemed very bored, asked 2 questions and left after 10 minutes. Limp handshake. Probably the most unprofessional interview I have ever been invited to. (The position has been re-listed 3 months later.)
