    Server Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cheesecake Factory (Anaheim, CA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    There are two interviews, first with the hiring manager of the work group you applied for and second is with either the GM or the AGM. They ask basic interview questions and then determine whether or not you have the right attitude, intelligence, or be the right choice for the job. Your previous experience is a major factor.

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.

    Server Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sunrise, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Cheesecake Factory (Sunrise, FL) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Interview is to the point and centered around the typical hospitality/customer service scenario based questions. Be prepared to study and work your tail off through training! Being a designated trainer for the company, I can say the 3 part certification process that you’ll go through as an incoming employee (once you’re in your hiring location) can be intimidating, but 100% possible!! Know your soups and fish specials, maintain the same upbeat and bubbly personality you got hired for and you’re good :).

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cheesecake Factory (Rancho Cucamonga, CA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    The restaurant seemed immaculate - the manager was offputting. Seemed like I had the job and they wanted to go over things. It came across as a very negative environment that lacked any kind of positivity.
