Sometimes you get a free meal, and I had a good camaraderie with my fellow servers.Cons
Management kept changing and it was hit or miss. Having a bad manager can really make work not funAdvice to ManagementAdvice
When managers seem at ease, that puts servers at ease. Running around panicked all the time helps no one.RecommendsNeutral OutlookNo opinion of CEO

- Application Details
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Mimi's Cafe.Interview Details
I applied for a position as a hostess after an unsuccessful foray into the insurance sales field. I had lost my car and i really didn't have many options.
The application process was quick and painless. I received a call for an interview the very next day. The interview was pleasant and professional. The store manager did seem to have an interest in my background but most of the questions didn't feel very relevant (in my opinion) to the job I was applying for. I was blatantly told that this position was a hostess position and there would be no opportunity to advance into serving or any other job in the restaurant. I didn't express y displeasure with that scenario, largely because I was desperate for work.
It took about a week before I heard back from anyone, then the store manager reached out to me personally to let me know that they weren't offering me a position because they felt I was overqualified for the job. I believe I got that call because I knew someone working at the restaurant - they had referred me. I don't know that it was common practice.
About a week later I received another call from the store manager wanting to know if I could start work immediately. Apparently the other hires didn't pan out.Interview Questions
