    Interview

    First step is an accounting and Excel test, which if passed the next step is an online assessment. That should take 1 1/2 hours but, really lasts longer if you're trying to do well on it. Then there is a face to face interview with two individuals simultaneously. Questions, are mainly behavioural read from preselected questions, and your responses are noted in the interview itself.

    I was a student who needed a job, I submitted my application and was told I would most likely be hired because of my experience in food service, and because they were currently hiring. I got a call back a few days later and was asked to come in and talk to the catering director and he basically asked for my availability and offered me the job. It was very laid back and easy.
