    Interview

    Filled out the application online and got called the next day for an interview. When I got there for the interview there were a lot of ppl there for different positions at different stores. I was interview by the food and beverage manager. Pretty much a basic interview for your typical restaurant. I was hired on the spot. Filled out some paper work and came in a week later for my orientation.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at HMSHost (Minneapolis, MN) in June 2012.

    Interview

    Easy, I've worked for the company before as well. They hire anyone who can pass a background check. It's basically easy questions, and a job offer. They hire continuously, so they let anyone in who is willing to put up with their crap. It's never stable once hired though- the company opens and closes businesses and you will be the first to lose your job with lower seniority.

    The interview didn't really seem like an interview, you knew you would be hired on the spot once they give you the job application.
