Average Interview

Application

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

Interview

kinda drawn out, two phone interview, two in person interviews, one final sit down interview, the a final phone call and sit down with the regional chef to go over the location/s and meet the rest of the management team. back ground, criminal and drug testing takes the longest to get threw, mainly because they send it all off to a third party. once your threw that then the rest is fairly quick

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Cheesecake Factory in September 2014.

    Interview

    Scheduled a phone interview through a recruiter. The cheesecake representative did not call at the scheduled time. Reset time with recruiter for another day, and cheesecake rep cancelled it half an hour before scheduled time and rescheduled for later that evening, then did not call that evening. Reset interview again with recruiter, and finally got interview the following week. Agent was rather rude, non-apologetic, and personality free.

    I applied online and the recruiter called me a few days later and expressed interest in my employment. She gave me a phone interview a week later, then I was given a few tests measuring my intelligence and personality, work ethic and so on. After I passed the tests, I was given an in-person interview and a shift observation a couple weeks later.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Cheesecake Factory.

    Interview

    Make sure you research about the company. Doing your homework pays off. Be honest they know a lot about you from the online assessment you take before the interview. You must have a passion for great food and be willing to develop your people to level of expertise. It took about 2 hour for the interview. A small tour of the restaurant and a lunch food tasting of many dishes.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cheesecake Factory (Denver, CO) in March 2010.

    Interview

    I had a 2 1/2 hour long interview online. It was grueling, but it wanted more personality than anything else. I suppose they want a certain type in there. I hope this is a good fit for me.
