    Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Colorado Springs, CO

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Golden Corral (Colorado Springs, CO) in February 2018.

    Interview

    The entire experience interviewing with this company was very frustrating and unprofessional. The recruiter that contacted me initially stated the wrong date for our interview and I had to reach out to her for clarification on the correct date. I let that slide as an honest mistake. No big deal. The first interview was just general experience questions. This occurred on a Friday. The recruiter stated that she would then contact me on Sunday for the next steps. Sunday came and went with no contact from her. I reached out to her on Monday and she then got back to me to schedule a second interview for the next day. The 2nd interview was about 45 minutes long and they were general situational and behavioral questions about your managerial style and how you would handle situations. The recruiter then said I would hear from her the next day about what would happen next. No response from her Wednesday. I sent a follow up email that evening with no reply from her. Sent her another email Thursday. No response still. At this point I moved on. I just felt it was extremely unprofessional to not reach out when you said you would. I noted that I do not want to work for a company that handles recruiting in this matter. On Saturday, I finally received a generic message on Indeed stating they were not moving forward with my application. My recommendation for the corporate leaders and recruiters for this company is to promptly follow up with applicants when you say you will. If you do not, you look extremely unorganized and unprofessional and you may be missing out on quality applicants.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Golden Corral (Harlingen, TX).

    Interview

    I was told by a family member Golden Corral was accepting in person applications. The only problem they didn't know the dates or time. I was interested and called the Harligen, TX location. I spoke to Debbie who was very polite and told me when to come in. She also told me she would take down my name and number and look for my online application personally (I would like to add she did just that). I filled out the online application and then came in and met with David. I filled out an in person application and was given an interview date. My first interview was with Debbie, and i have nothing but great things to say how about her, wonderful decision in making her a leader for Golden Corral because she carries her self in a way that people want to follow. My second interview was with David, my third interview was with Mr. Silva where I was offered the job. The entire management team made me feel welcome and eager to start as a team member for Golden Corral.
