    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hakkasan (Las Vegas, NV) in June 2015.

    Was asked how I worked under pressure. They did not seem to take into account that I had nightclub security experience at a much larger club. The interviewer didn't seem too interested in the whole process. Was told that we're not allowed to accept tips at all and if we did, it was instant firing.
