    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Islands Restaurants (Irvine, CA) in August 2018.

    Interview

    Had to drive an hour and a half for my interview at their corporate office. Interviewer seemed uprepared and not interested from the beginning. He asked some close-ended questions and many repetitive questions. At one point I really didn't understand what he was asking and he seemed annoyed that I was asking clarifying questions? I would reccommend to this company to invest in interview training. I didn't recieve an offer, but would have decline an offer based upon my experience.
