    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    It was a very short interview. They were very busy. At the beginning he told me that the position was filled,and he didn't want to waste my time(I had already canceled other appointments that day, and spent an hour getting there.) but if I wanted to get my foot on the door, I could start with a host position, and later get into a server training. Gave me a name to call. Couldn't reach her for two weeks. Eventually gave up.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cheesecake Factory (San Jose, CA).

    Application

    The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Cheesecake Factory.

    Interview

    I applied online & about a week later I got a call from the manager. We had a brief phone interview & she asked if I could come in later that day. I got there & immediately she came out, greeted me, and we sat so the real interview could begin. She asked basic questions and told me about what to expect being a host there. She made the experience very comfortable & laid back. I was offered the position on the spot.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Cheesecake Factory (Boca Raton, FL).

    Interview

    Short, but you had to wait a while. As I waited, everyone was really nice. The GM in the Boca location is very focused on the guest experience. He was nice. He was very understanding. He asked a lot questions about, and my personal life. Talked me about the 2 weeks of training. He set the exception, and helped me understand what I was suppose to expect in the near future.
