    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at BUCA (New York, NY) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email from the general manager requesting to set up an interview that same week. I went in a couple days later to meet with the general assistant manager, the first interview was very simple and relaxed. They explained what a hostess does in the restaurant (take reservations, help the to go window, seat tables, help buss tables) then we talked about my previous employer. They then went to get the general manager so she could conduct the second interview which was also pretty casual, she clarified what the hostess does and what the position means to her then started to go over the values of Buca as a whole. After asking me a couple questions and going over my availability/duties of my previous job she offered me the job.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at BUCA (Cleveland, OH) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Overall, was a fairly quick interview process. Interviewed by the General Manager, discussed how knowledgeable I was with food, how I worked with people, etc.There were also questions about scheduling, how available I would be to work, if I had weekends free, and if i could work evenings. Luckily, it worked in my favor where I had a fairly flexible schedule and was able to work on those shifts that they wanted.

    Additionally, they also asked how well I dealt with people who were unhappy and how I would make sure the guest always left happy.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at BUCA (Lombard, IL).

    Interview

    The initial interview was a breeze. However, the whole process was very unorganized. I had to come in and sit for a half an hour on three separate occasions to fill out paperwork because the general manager couldn't figure out how to print the paperwork out. Lots of wasted time.
