    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Maggiano's in August 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was simple. I applied online. Within a week or two, I was given a call for an in-person interview. When I went to the restaurant, I waited for almost an hour to speak to a manager. Then, we went over my work history. I answered a few questions. After that, they called their manager to further the interview. When that was complete, they informed me I would get a call if I was hired.

    Communications Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Maggiano's (Dallas, TX) in August 2016.

    Interview

    First I want to say that everyone at Maggiano's was extremely nice, but this interview process was shoddy.
    I was contacted on a Thursday and told to fill out an evaluation form and that they'd get back with me the next day to set up an interview time.
    Four days later after no response I checked back in and they said sorry, and that someone would be back to me within a day to set up an interview.
    A week later and still no response I follow up again and that finally triggered the interview. The interview itself was great, and everyone at the company was extremely nice. It was on a Friday and I was told they'd let me know one way or another by early the next week.
    Over two weeks went by and I finally followed up. They got back to me within an hour to let me know I didn't get the job, so obviously they had know for awhile.
    Again, this seems like a great company to work for and everyone was great, but there is a serious lack of communication with applicants so if you're applying get ready to stay on the initiative.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Maggiano's (Las Vegas, NV).

    Interview

    It was easy. The interviewer made me feel comfortable. That was 5 years ago though. The new management team makes you feel like a number not a person. Offered me glass a water. Asked if I ever worked in food service. Hired on the spot. And said good luck it's going to be intense training

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Maggiano's (Jacksonville, FL) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I scheduled an interview with the GM who was out of town when I showed up. (Red Flag #1). The interview had to be rescheduled. The interview was set for 2pm didn't get interviewed till almost 3pm. I was interviewed by the Assistant Manager who basically throughout the interview complained about his employees, (red flag #2), and did not represent his company culture in a professional manner. He basically offered me another position (red flag #3), which is code for "we've already hired someone internally, but if you still want to work here we have something else you could do." I was scheduled to return for a second interview with the GM, but decided there were other things I could be spending my time on.

    Server Interview

    Interview

    Two separate interviews. First one was good, easy questions and just making sure I've served before. They did however make me wait about 30-45 minutes. I scheduled an interview for 3 and wasn't seen until 330ish. Fine, I understand miscommunication. Second interview started out fine. Interviewer seemed very condescending when I mentioned my previous workplace. Interrupted me a lot and was very rude despite the "welcoming environment" the interviewer brought up several times throughout the interview. Claims they are a laid back staff but the interviewer snapped at me when I misspoke calling the restaurant fine dining instead of business casual. I'm not sure if this was testing my patience to deal with obnoxious customers but either way, would not recommend.
