Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Cheesecake Factory.

Interview

My interview was no longer than 10 minutes. Told the hiring manager about myself and my past experiences. Very simple and easy interview! I was later hired, and joined the earliest training which was super fun and interactive. There is a ton to learn menu wise, but they really try to make this a fun working experience.

    Application

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

    Interview

    I applied for the advertised position online, it took a couple of weeks for them to call me, but once they did, they asked me to come in for an interview. I had two in person interviews, one was with a floor manager and the second was with the GM of the store. Both interviews were fairly laid back, mostly conversational but focusing on what customer service means to you.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cheesecake Factory in January 2010.

    Interview

    The Cheesecake Factory is always hiring and employees are consistently quitting. However, you make larger tips compared to other restaurants. They had a job posting on craigslist.com. I went into the restaurant and asked the hostess for an application. The hostess was pleasant until I asked for the application. The hostess led me to the bar area to fill out the application. After I completed it, I took it back to the hostess, who said would you like to speak to a manager. I responded with of course. It took at least 20 minutes for the manager to come out. We sat at a table went over my application. The interview lasted approximately 10 minutes at most. The manager was nice, however a little dull. The manager called the next day to offer me a position. I declined the offer, since I received a better offer earlier that day.
