    The interview process was not that hard. You had your typical interview where you schedule a date and they ask you about yourself. They also ask you about your previous experience.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Benihana in September 2016.

    Interview

    It was a phone interview to determine whether I would've been a good fit for the job or not. My first impression was negative since it took the recruiter two weeks to respond to my email with my availability and a few key questions. When the recruiter finally responded she didn't even answer my question and scheduled to call me on Thursday at 10am. But I actually received the call from her on that Wednesday at 10:20. She did apologize for calling 20 mins late, even though that wasn't our scheduled time and I just happened to be available at that moment. She asked me a few questions but every time I answered or asked a question she would pause for an odd amount of time before she would respond or ask another question. After a few moments she then mentions that she felt I wasn't qualified and that she had other candidates that were much for qualified than myself. I understood... However, it was quite an odd phone interview and wish it would've been different.

    Negotiation

    Not really negotiating. He ask me what I wanted or thought about making. I told him 9-10 he said okay. That's actually the highest I ever got paid. My old jobs paid me 7.93-8.05 and was cutting hours so this is good
