    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Mimi's Cafe (Fairfield, CA).

    Interview

    Was a very short interview with a manager that had barely asked me any questions. Instead, she commented on what I was wearing. I got hired on the spot since she liked me enough I guess. I wonder what she got out of the interview since she didn't ask much at all. Only thing that mattered I guess was my personal appearance.

    Hostess Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Mimi's Cafe.

    Interview

    I applied for a position as a hostess after an unsuccessful foray into the insurance sales field. I had lost my car and i really didn't have many options.

    The application process was quick and painless. I received a call for an interview the very next day. The interview was pleasant and professional. The store manager did seem to have an interest in my background but most of the questions didn't feel very relevant (in my opinion) to the job I was applying for. I was blatantly told that this position was a hostess position and there would be no opportunity to advance into serving or any other job in the restaurant. I didn't express y displeasure with that scenario, largely because I was desperate for work.

    It took about a week before I heard back from anyone, then the store manager reached out to me personally to let me know that they weren't offering me a position because they felt I was overqualified for the job. I believe I got that call because I knew someone working at the restaurant - they had referred me. I don't know that it was common practice.

    About a week later I received another call from the store manager wanting to know if I could start work immediately. Apparently the other hires didn't pan out.
