    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Cheesecake Factory (San Diego, CA) in October 2013.

    Interview

    first you apply online. then you get a call to come in for an interview. Was a new store opening. kind of like a cattle call, tons of people applying in a big room. Lots of paperwork going on. So you meet with a section manager have a interview. they either ask you to wait or say they call you back, if you get wait that means you meat the GM for a final once over interview. they say they'll call you back. if you're hired they'll call you in a few days.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Cheesecake Factory (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2013.

    Interview

    I interviewed with Rob Hester. He was laid back and easy going. The interview didn't last long and I was hired on the spot right after giving me a compliment. He then introduced me to one of the managers, Angela, who gave me a brief tour after filling out some paperwork. It wasn't a very long process. The longest part was waiting to be seen because they are so busy.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Cheesecake Factory (Bellevue, WA).

    Interview

    Applied online, received a call a day later from the section manager. She asked me a few really basic questions about prior experience, then asked me to come in and meet her. I met with her a few days later, it went really well and she arranged a meeting with the general manager for me in a couple days. The general manager seemed like a busy guy, but not in a bad way. The second interview only lasted about ten minutes, with no real challenging questions. Standard restaurant questions. He said if I didn't hear from him that afternoon to assume I hadn't got the position. I didn't hear from him.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing really unexpected, mostly why do you want to work here, what do you think makes a good host, do you have those qualities, etc.

      Also asked which cheesecake factory restaurants I had been to and what I knew about the company.   Answer Question
