    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    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.

    Director of Dining Services Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Kansas City, MO
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Compass Group USA (Kansas City, MO) in December 2016.

    Interview

    First, I applied through Indeed via the phone app. I answered a few additional questions then filled out an application on the the company website. Within a few days I received an invitation to for a virtual interview. Basically, you log into a website and record your responses to 5 questions via your phone/tablet web cam. This was a little weird but went well. This is done on your schedule, no need to take time off from work or reschedule anything. It took about 15 min. Remember to dress up just like a regular in person interview. I was contact by HR a few hours later and asked to take an online test. The test is similar to the SAT. I was surprised by the difficulty of some questions. Next I had a quick phone interview with the district manager, met the client and was offered the position, all within a week or so.
