    Interview

    Found job online and was impressed by the hiring process. They were thorough in introducing the company to me and very nice. It was like a family environment but still professional.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Abuelo's Mexican Restaurant (Plano, TX) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Very Simple interview process they pretty much hire everyone because they have a lot of test and training to get through before your a full fledged server. The training takes about 2 weeks to complete maybe even faster however I did not work full time as I had another job so took me the entirety of the 2 weeks to get through it .

    Server Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Abuelo's Mexican Restaurant (Dallas, TX) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Simple, just know the menu front and back and prepare for in-depth questions based on it and you should be absolutely fine to get the job. My manager was really cool with me because we basically had the same first name and got a kick out of it. Best advice is to be a chill, relaxed, worry free kind of person because in my opinion anyone who works at a nicer Mexican restaurant more geared towards older people and couples who wanna come in, get tanked on margaritas, tip you descent on giant plates of food, and all the while you kick it with chill staff who know that while the restaurant is corporate at the end of the day your simply "just serving them a taco."
