    Hostess Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Cheddar's.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a call a few days later to set up an interview. When I got there I found out that the manager who was supposed to interview me was not there, and the person who was scheduled to go before me was stillborn waiting for his interview. While I was waiting I figured out that the person who was before me had worked there previously, which is probably why I didn't get the job. I waited almost thirty minutes for another manager to finally interview me, and it was obvious he had made up his mind before he even met me.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cheddar's (Charlotte, NC).

    Interview

    I came in for an open interview. I was told they needed "immediate help". I ended up waiting for over an hour before someone even acknowledged me (unprofessional). I filled out an app in-store & was then told the hiring manager wouldn't speak with me that day & I'd hear a callback. Never got a call so I called back & was once again told I'd hear a callback. Never did. Such a waste of time & energy for a place that supposedly needed help.

    Hostess Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cheddar's.

    Interview

    From what I've gathered from my own interview and from the reviews left on here is that when they call you in to interview they're already in the mindset they'll hire you unless something goes wrong in the interview. They don't require previous restaurant experience so it's a pretty easy place to get into.

    My interview:
    I arrived about 15 minutes early, went in, and told the the hostess my name and that I was there for an interview at 2:30 with *insert name*. She told me to have a seat and that she would go grab him. She came back and said he is on his way. He came and greeted me and we walked to a secluded area of the restaurant and started the interview 10 minutes early.
       The questions were pretty simple (what I do at my current job, do I walk around much, a bad customer experience, etc). After a few questions we got into talking about my availability and the scheduling process.
       He excused himself and said he was going to speak with who I'm assuming is the head manager. He came back and offered me the job on the spot.

    Server Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Cheddar's (Morgantown, WV) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a call for an interview about a week later. The first guy I interviewed with was very calm and relaxed and just asked basic questions about me and my experience. He then told me to come back the following week to have an interview with another manager. I came back, ended up waiting for about an hour till he finally met with me, had the wrong application, then asked if I would be interested in being a host, which I declined since the hosts don't make the money to support living ($4 plus 3% tip servers make). I declined because I didn't apply as a host and online it said that they needed servers.
