Not hard, making sure you can work with other people/customers. If it’s Olive Garden those endless refills are a killer. The job itself is more difficult than the interview to be honest.

Easy Interview
Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Darden in Mar 2021

Interview

I applied online & had a nice convo with one of the Hiring Managers. I then had a great convo with two guys from the team. After this, around a week of waiting I was told they were not moving forward. This is fine, it happens. Then I was called later in the week that they let the wrong person go & that I needed to interview in person. I have the in person interview & do great, but they email me the next week saying they are going with a candidate with more experience. However, it is not over. I get a call that they want to interview me for a contract position. Yay!I have another great interview, but I found out they already have two contractors & plan on hiring two more. The issue is the position is only 60-90 days & they would only keep two employees. No way I would get the permanent job if they have a 40 day headstart. Overall, interview process was kinda sloppy & felt deceitful. However, everyone I interacted with was great & nice.

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Darden (Orlando, FL) in Jan 2021

Interview

After applying on line, was sent an email for an interview. I phoned the mgr. , set up date/time for the interview. When I showed, I was told he wasn't there. They asked me to reschedule. No one called me to cancel or tell me he no longer was there. I had a 2nd interview on the same day with another Darden restaurant. When I show at this place, that mgr. wasn't there & another mgr. came out. She asked what I had applied for???? So no one is informed about the applicants coming in who made an appointment. She went into the back & didn't come out for a very long time. It was very awkward because there wasn't a place to sit up front due to covid. Finally, another mgr. comes out to interview me.

Interview Questions
  • Most are scripted questions, but not too hard.
