    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Kabuki Japanese Restaurants (Las Vegas, NV) in December 2015.

    Interview

    First I was called in by the (now former) floor manager. She interviewed me, asked basic questions about ethics and availability, then told me to return the next day to interview with the general manager.

    He asked me what I knew about sushi and japanese food, then followed up with availability questions. At the end, I was hired and told to return the same evening for my first shift.

    Interview Questions

    • What do you know about sushi? What are the different forms of sushi?   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Kabuki Japanese Restaurants.

    Interview

    The interview process is quick and informal. It will help a lot if you know someone that is currently working. Mostly hires friends and family. If you are lucky you will interview with a floor manager that is kind and understanding. Most upper management is old and korean, and will judge you based on looks.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Kabuki Japanese Restaurants (Brea, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The Kabuki interview was fairly basic. They asked questions that restaurant jobs would ask for. The manager would take you to a separate room and ask you questions. Interview was fairly short and lasted about 15 minutes. Some questions included: What is your availability like and What are your strengths ?

    Host Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Kabuki Japanese Restaurants.

    Interview

    Applied online, got a call about ten days later for an interview. Went in and met the manager. She was VERY unprofessional. She sat me down at a booth in the actual restaurant literally next to a group of people eating. Then she flipped through a stack of 5 or more applications right in front of me while I was answered her questions. First she asked me, "Tell me about your experience." Then she asked immediately afterwards "Tell me about yourself" which is pretty much the same question since employers don't want you to actually talk about yourself, they want your job history/experience.

    As soon as I told her I wasn't available 2 days out the week, her face and friendly behavior dropped, which is frustrating to me since the online application didn't have an area where you could input your availability. She then asked me a couple of questions that I already answered in the application like if "I knew anyone who worked there." At the end of the interview, she kept on repeating "I don't know, I don't know" in front of me and sat there in silence for 5+ seconds while she considered hiring me or not. Then she told me come in for an interview the next day with a different manager. The next day, the other manager immediately offered me the job.

    A very uncomfortable and unprofessional interview experience.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Kabuki Japanese Restaurants (Las Vegas, NV) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Simple questions about yourself. This job doesn't require any experience for hosts, so they mostly just want to see what kind of person you are. If you don't have any job experience, please put some type of experience on your resume: volunteering, babysitting, etc. They just want something. They mostly look for how you speak and act, since you'll be interacting with customers as soon as they walk in.
