    Insurance, people, guests, salary, not 24 hours. Food, atmosphere, hiring your own team members. Making people happy with food. The birthday song.


    Long hours, long hours, did I mention the long hours!! Working Christmas Day. Working Christmas Eve. Working July fourth. And long hours.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at Ryan's.


    I could tell right off the bat that the interview would potentially be a bust. The guy was distracted, got up for the table multiple times to answer calls from his cell phone. A 10 minute interview turned into 30 minutes because of it. He wasn't interested in what he was doing.

    Reasons for Declining

    I've interviewed with this company before. Three times in fact for three different positions. It was always the same manager. Every time it was the same song, Sit there, ask idiotic questions, get up from the table on multiple accounts, come back, ask more questions, answer a phone call, feed you lies, tell you he'll call and of course he doesn't because he's not interested. I don't want to work with someone who won't even hear you out. If you are unheard in the an interview ( best impressions and all ) you're not going to be heard out as a slave of the company. Simple.
