    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Cheesecake Factory (San Diego, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    It was actually really fast - I was called about 2 days after applying. It began with a phone interview where they asked me a few preliminary questions (last about 5-6 minutes maybe) and afterwards I was granted an in-person interview. That lasted a while, maybe an hour. I was then told I would get a second interview with the general manager of the restaurant. I think my first interview was with a regular manager. The second interview was faster, I think he is just a busy guy, so it was maybe 30 minutes. We went over my availability, past experiences, how I would handle being in a busy and hectic environment. He told me then that I was hired and would hear from them about orientation!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cheesecake Factory (San Juan, PR) in August 2013.

    Interview

    After a bit over a month of applying online, got a call for an interview for a new location opening. Because of my studies in pastry, even though I had years of experience as a server, I was offered a job as a Baker or Dessert Finisher (how the call it in their website). The interview was very short, not too many questions, nothing too difficult. They seem to put a lot of value in the form and test you have to take online when applying for a job.

    Interview Questions

    • In what way would my work ethic be of value for the company?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I did not try to negotiate for more than what they initially offered because it was more than I even expected to get paid in the first place.
