    Easy Interview

    Interview

    It was simple I just sat down with one of the managers during the in between hours of the restaurant. He was a very nice, he asked me if I had customer service experience before, i told him that i had. He asked me my experience there would translate to something beneficial to the company, I told I've met and spoken with about dozens of people each day in an effort to sell them something. It would be even easier for me when people came to eat and were forsure going to buy something.
