Application

I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Mellow Mushroom in May 2016.

Interview

I walked in on a Monday and spoke with the day manager. Then I went home immediately and filled out an online application. By Friday I had an interview, and by the following Monday, I had a job offer.

Interview Questions

  • The interview was a group interview and very interesting to say the least. It was super laid back, fun, and well... mellow. It took about thirty minutes long and there were three other people interviewing with me. On a piece of paper, we had to write down our name, number, availability, and a fun fact about ourselves. The questions I got asked were about music I listened to, places I would travel to, how I would handle a zombie apocalypse, and a cube I found in the desert. Super cool. There was, however, at the very end a scenario that would be typical of a restaurant environment: busy, loud, chaotic. We were asked to explain how we would handle a situation as such.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Mellow Mushroom (Westerville, OH) in August 2015.

    Interview

    I filled out the application online on another job board and I got an email back from Jack Baker (I think that was his name) and he wants me to interview immediately. We set up a time of 2 pm on Monday and I go to the interview and we discuss the job and what he's looking for. The first thing I noticed when I got there was that the girls working there all had short shorts on. (not my style as I'm 51 yrs old.) He told me that he needed to fill 7 vacancies and he was interviewing 10 girls for the job. I asked some questions and we ended the interview. The next step is to wait until next week to see if I got the job. After that I'm sure the next step would be to fill out hiring papers, train and get me working. This was a typical interview and typical interview process.

    The whole thing only took maybe 3 minutes!!
    After sitting down the manager looked at my application and said tell me about why you like serving. Then he went over what they serve and what they do as far as the bar go's with specials. He asked me about how many tables I could handle at once.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Mellow Mushroom (Jacksonville, FL) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Mellow Mushroom surprised me with how thorough they were with their interview. I was interviewed by two different managers, and they asked me many in-depth questions to make an effort to really get to know me. The interview probably took about 30 minutes total. I assume this is an effort to reduce turnover.

    Interview

    Had a quick chat with the manager, basically asked if i could multitask and be on time. It was not a difficult interview. It helps if you know people that can vouch for you.
