    Dishwasher Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Compass Group USA in March 2018.

    Interview

    Interviewer was polite and friendly, asked some tough questions. I applied for a position as a full time dishwasher at $13 an hour. I was passed up for a more experienced candidate. Later I got an email saying they could offer me the dishwasher position, and I thought maybe the first candidate hadn't worked out. Started filling out some of the paperwork, and then a few days later got a call saying he was actually offering me a job as a caterer for $8.50 an hour with "fluctuating" hours (but we'll start you off at 15.) The job I was working when I applied gave me a solid 35 hours a week at $11 per hour, so I declined.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Compass Group USA (Lake Forest, CA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Quick personal interview...non scripted. I felt I was getting to low the chef and his requirements. It didn't feel very corperate which I like... I felt as if the chef wanted to make sure of not only my experience and skills but also that i would match the personality he was tying to build for the kitchen.
