    Server Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Louisville, KY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Cheesecake Factory (Louisville, KY) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Dress up, bring a pen, act professional, don't mention money. I had no experience but a lot of higher-level professional jobs that showed my attitude and experience dealing with people would be solid. It helped that I knew someone who had been there a while, too. I doubt I'd have been hired without her recommendation, but once I got the interview, I did learn that personality counts for a lot. It was a one-on-one with a manager, who did the standard list of annoying interview questions, a personality questionnaire, and then a 2nd interview with the GM. They asked if I would be willing to work as a baker instead of a server. I said yes, though I didn't really mean it. I think they wanted to test me. I just told them what they wanted to hear. But, I was very honest about my availability, so that did me a lot of good when scheduling began, as I didn't have to go and beg to have my information change. I was up front about what days I could work, so they never gave me any trouble when I was not able to pick up shifts.

    Server Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sunrise, FL

    Positive Experience
    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!
