    Food Service Worker Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Miami, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Canteen (Miami, FL) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I got in by someone I know that already worked in the company. So when I was in the office with the manager, he did not ask me any appropriate interview questions. I felt a little intimidated because he was trying to make jokes out of me and obviously I did not find them funny. I was hired, a week later of course and now I realise that they hire anyone because not many want to work at that location.

    Data Entry Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Orlando, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Canteen (Orlando, FL) in April 2012.

    Interview

    One interview that was with the accounting manager and operations manager. We talked about my experience and what the job involved. It is best to dress nicely for any position at Canteen for the interview. Driver jobs will teach you everything you need to know. You're only expected to know how to use Microsoft Office for the lower level office jobs. All the managers are friendly and the interview will probably be short because they have a lot to do.
