I worked at Mimi's CafePros
Was great at first, but that soon changed when there was too many employees and no work and managers being careless and not being examples or having not had restaurant management training previous To them having this job.Cons
Business's died, yet managers kept hiring new employees. Lead to all employees only working two days a week for 1.5-4 hours a shift. Leaving our bi-weekly(2wks) check at 80.00 if we were lucky. Business went out of business and j had to call them after returning home from my vacation multiple times to enquire my next shift, and I finally got bombarded with the news with no warning. Also I needed my GM to fill out a form with some informarmation that my current future landlord needed form section 8 housing, and they took over the asked time I informed them I needed to return it to the apartment manager. And they lost the actual form and it took over two weeks for them to finally tell me they lost it.. By that time I did not look reliable or responsible to the apartment housing and therefore the denied me and I was suppost to move in as soon as we got that form, I even had already had the gas and electric bills in my name. I also tried to get unemployment and they denied me and the reasoning is because they falsely stated that I had quit unannounced. I am currently filing an appeal. I just recently got employed with an AMAZING job and am truely blessed, but I thought i meeded to share my expirence just for others to be aware and cautious.Advice to ManagementAdvice

- 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
