    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Cheesecake Factory (Fort Lauderdale, FL) in November 2017.

    Was consistent with most corporate restaurant interviews, including a personality test and other multiple choice questions. They asked the common questions like previous work experience, ability to handle stressful situations and willing to work nights, weekends and holidays. I was invited in for an interview about three weeks after posting an application.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cheesecake Factory.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • What are your strengths? Can you work weekends? How do you handle multitasking? What is your definition of teamwork?   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cheesecake Factory (Saint Louis, MO).

    Interview

    Online application and lengthy assessment test. 2 part interview, I was waiting quite a while for my interview to actually begin. So I would recommend not thinking you will squeeze this in if you have something else to do fairly soon afterwards.

    Interview Questions

    • Name a time I went out to eat and I had a wonderful serving experience, and name a time I had a negative experience, and what are specific things that I look for in a server when I go out to eat?   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cheesecake Factory (Sunrise, FL) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online after seeing a job opening on indeed and was called back by a manager about 2-3 weeks later asking if I was still looking for employment which I was. So we set up an interview for the following day. I was there for about 45 minutes just because the manager I was told would be interviewing me was in a meeting. The interview was short and sweet, no hard questions, just about previous server experience and personality questions. Then I was asked to come back for a following interview the next morning with the head manager. That interview was also short and he gave me an opportunity to ask him some questions, which I did. I asked what his favorite part about working there was as well as the training process because I heard it was a lot (he told me it was 3 weeks long). After that, he told me to sit tight for a few minutes and when he came back I was offered the job on the spot and told when to come in for orientation! Super easy overall!

    it was fine. lots of steps to go through from phone to in person to training. Long process. But I guess that is everywhere nowadays. IT just takes awhile to complete the process.

    Server Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Cheesecake Factory (Los Angeles, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Had an interview with one of the managers which lasted 10 minutes. (This was a different manager than the one that called me to set up the interview) He asked the usual interview questions, like whats your experience and why would you be a good fit here. Also asked about my availability and when I could start. After the interview, the manager said he would contact me the next day to set up a second interview with the GM...I never heard back from him. I understand how busy it can get and that there are numerous people interviewing for different positions, but be a professional. It looks bad. If you can't follow through with a simple callback, which you promised, how am I going to look at you as a reliable manager?
