    I have been working at Kona Grill part-time (more than an year)


    The majority of my coworkers are cool and easy to get along with. The managers are professional when resolving issues and try to keep their employee's best interests in mind. They will not hesitate to help you out if you get too busy or are dealing with a difficult guest.


    The clientele can be terrible sometimes, but you'll get that in any restaurant. Managers will call people off if they are on overtime, even if it leaves us understaffed. It can get extremely busy and stressful on some nights, so if you can't multitask well or work as a team then this may not be the job for you.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Kona Grill in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    When I was searching for jobs online, Kona came up on Indeed and I applied online. There was a very lengthy aptitude test along with the job application and resume. Based off of my results management called me in for my first interview, with one of the 4 managers. I passed the first interview so I was called in for a second interview with a different manager. Then I passed the second interview, I was called in for the final interview with the General Manager and at that point he told me in person I was hired. First he asked me some questions about myself, and general interview questions about how I would handle things in certain situations. All three managers had different interview styles but they were all relatively nerve wracking. I highly suggest dressing your best and come in with the most confidence you've got. Also, be the friendliest you can be. I really do think Kona is looking for friendly ambitious people above all.
