    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.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Grand Lux Cafe (Chicago, IL) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online which was a long process because the assessments at the end were very long. After I submited the application and assessments the next day I got called for an interview. I talked to a woman about the reason why I chose Grand Lux Cafe and she also went over my availability. After that she invited me in for a in person interview the very next day. I arrived at the restaurant 15 minutes before my interview was scheduled. I waited awhile for the interview to start. The manager took me over to a booth and we started the interview. VERY basic questions. Why do you want to work here? Do you have any questions for me? Etc. He went over my avaliablity with me too and seemed very positive about it. He wrapped up the SHORT interview by explaining what the next steps were in the hiring process. He said that he would call on a certain day to offer the position, but if you do not receive a call they decided to proceed with another candidate. (This is when I figured I didn't get the position. I figured he would have offered me the position then) The day came and I never got a call. Make sure you smile! I feel maybe this was the reason I didn't get offered the position I was feelig off interview day.
