    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Grand Lux Cafe (Cherry Hill, NJ) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Met with Freddy. Always smiled and asked questions, in which being in the restaurant industry for about 10 years was very easy and self explanatory. Friendly man. Works hard. Cares about employees and sees so much potential in those who don't see it in themselves. If you're given the opportunities the position, it's him welcoming to the family. I never felt so comfortable and sure of my position and goals now.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Grand Lux Cafe.

    Interview

    I came into the front desk to ask if they were hiring. A hostess told me they were and to bring in my resume.

    A few days later I brought it in and a the floor manager greeted me asked me a few simple questions "customer service experience, what's hours I was looking for, etc" then he went to the back to get the General Manager.

    Not sure if I walked in on interview day but I was interviewed right there and then offered the job.

    I came in a few days later to get trained as a hostess. After a few months I asked to be a food runner and then a few weeks after that I asked to become a Cashier. Both regular training, and a test to make sure you know the plating protocol.

    Smile. And if you know how you like to be treated as a customer, I find that working in customer service is pretty easy.
