    Interview Questions

    • Not so much a question as a requirement. Know your specs early. They'll send you home with some, you need to know them when you come in.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at McMenamins (Portland, OR) in June 2011.

    Interview

    I had to go all the way downtown for the interview, which was a hassle and extremely out of my way, which mad me even more nervous. I was asked the basic questions and filled out the necessary paperwork. It seemed like it was a long and drawn out process and took quite a while.
    I think I had to wait about a week or so to hear back and wasnt even expecting to get an offer but I did.
