    Online. Personality test. In-store interview with two managers and then a general manager. Dress appropriately, lot of people are rejected simply based on inappropriate attire. Open availability on your schedule is a priority and at least one year of service experience.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cheesecake Factory.

    Interview

    Interview process consisted of a phone interview then contacted for a "shadow" interview. I followed around GM and his staff for 4 hours. Got to meet some great people. Sat down and spoke with the GM, was asked routine questions, pretty straight forward interview. Was rejected from my scheduled final interview because they were concerned I was applying to their companies as well. I was a longevity risk. Ironically that position is open again 2 months later.
