    Interview

    Couldn't interview in the afternoon because of my current job commitment. Met the manager at opening. He was more interested in what was going on in the restaurant, he kept getting up to resolve issues with the staff. If he wasn't going to have the time to do a proper interview he should never have called me in. When he asked a question, i felt like his attention was more on the restaurant than what i was saying.

    Interview Questions

    • Experience, where I worked, job duties, etc. Talked more about the restaurant kitchen operations than asked questions   Answer Question
