    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at House of Blues.

    Interview

    They just asked some basic questions. Mine was an informal interview. I already knew someone who worked there so my process was most likely different from anyone else's. I pretty much got "interviewed" as I turned in my application since I had a good reference from a valued employee.

    Interview Questions

    • I submitted an application and talked to the manager on the same day. The process was different for me since I already knew someone who worked there. So it will probably be different for anyone else. You can get the applications at the host stand or at box office.   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at House of Blues (San Diego, CA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Apply online, then you will have a phone interview from the H.R. Manager that is responsible for the venue or district. You will then get called in for a second interview if you pass the phone interview. The phone interview lasted about 30 minutes. This was a referral from a good connection so the conversation was going over my past experience in the industry and current availability, nothing too detailed.
