    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Golden Corral (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    Was contacted through a recruiter that pretty much did everything. I interviewed with the regional manager, did a day on the job training, then back ground check, then met with the VP of operations a week later. They loved me and offered me a job then. My interviewer was extremely personable. Very relaxed and lots of jokes/smiles.

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Golden Corral (San Bernardino, CA) in September 2016.

    There were 5 men interviewing me, all managers, they were very nice and laid back. They wanted to know more about me and my felony then anything else it seemed. The Store has not opened up yet so i will be waiting for an email. I've been told that they are an equal opportunity employer or whatever, so hopefully I will get the job. They seemed to be understanding about how I am turning my life around.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Golden Corral (Osage Beach, MO) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I walked in,asked for a manager,about 5 minutes later a man walked out and said,"What can I do for ya chief?" I asked him if they were hiring and what positions they had open. He asked what I was looking for,and I told him something in the back. So,he told me to hang on while he got his kitchen manager. ....This is where it goes south...A man walked out and said hello,I I said hi back and shook his hand. He told me to follow him in a hasty way,so I obliged. We sat down,and he actually started speaking.....The man,could hardly speak a word of english.I continue on,trying my best to decipher what he's saying and I just nodded. He said something about computers and he'd call me back Wednesday and sent me on my way. So Tuesday comes and they call and tell me to come in,I go in meet a guy who speaks a bit better English,at least fluent enough to where everyone can understand him. He grabs a napkin draws some random stuff,and says the pay is 9 an hour,but quickly follows up with how,people don't get layed off there, that they lay themselves off. I found that a bit of an odd thing to say,but looked past it..He said hed have another manager get my tax papers to fill out and my uniform..He never actually told me I was ,just a bunch of stuff that felt alot like some Godfather type stuff. So,wait 3 HOURS for the other manager,I had to go get him because they had forgot about me...He finally gets my papers and takes my SS card and license...sends me back to my house to get non slip shoes because apparently im working THAT DAY. So I do,get my shoes go back and remind him about my SS card and stuff,he says hes got it and will give it back in a min...back to that later. So he tries to get me to do the computer stuff and it wont work....so he just throws me into the kitchen...okay,besides me,ONE GUY SPOKE ENGLISH....so,nearing close,I ask again for my SS and license back,he finally gives it to me. After about 6 hours.....
