I was hired on the spot and told to come in within the next week for orientation which lasted about 5 hours. Finally, you are to train 5 days in a row and at the end of the week serve the manager.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Carrabba's Italian Grill (Fayetteville, NC) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Interview was simple, short, and to the point; just asked me like three questions, told me about the job, and hired me right on the spot. I was surprised that they didn't ask more but not a problem to me. :)

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Carrabba's Italian Grill (Naperville, IL) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I got there and sat down with both managers; they seemed uptight and rude. When they started asking me questions, I realized it was the same question rephrased about 20 different times. I felt like I was repeating myself the whole time, but what did they expect? Just from being in the interview, I could tell I didn't want to work there.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me, "If the customer is unhappy, what would you do?" Then rephrased it over and over again.   Answer Question

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Carrabba's Italian Grill (Cary, NC).

    Interview

    I was told I could sit at a booth and was asked if I wanted anything to drink before the interview. Then the manager came and asked me a few questions. The interview took about 15 minutes, and was fairly simple. It came across to me as following the serving philosophy of maintaining good emotions as well as being efficient.

    • What experience serving do you have? What would you do in the event of an unhappy customer? What do you enjoy most about serving, what do you personally enjoy about this type of work?   Answer Question
