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.

    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.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cheesecake Factory.

    Interview

    It is a very easy interview process, they will basically hire anyone. The cheesecake factory used to be a hard place to get a job but not anymore. Service has gone down a lot because of how easy it is to get in. The interview is about 30 minutes and it is just one interview.

    Interview

    Applied online, did two questionaires. One personality and one timed education test, with math and IQ test type questions. About 2 days later I got a call and the manager asked me a couple questions on the phone, then invited me in the next day for an in person interview. I went in for the interview and the same manager interviewed me, he liked me so he had me wait a min so that I could interview with the GM. He asked me a few questions also, then said he wanted to hire me. Told me about the training and orientation. I was then sent 2 emails that night stating my job offer, pay, ect and another one with a link to do my hire packet.

    I applied online, then brought in a copy of my resume the next day. I was called the same day and given a short phone interview. They asked simple things like my availability, why i was leaving my other job, etc. Then we scheduled an interview. Usually, applicants are required to do 2 interviews, one with a manager and another with the GM. For me, I only had 1 interview. I was hired on the spot
