    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Mitchell's Fish Market (Jacksonville, FL).

    Interview

    I filled out the application, they called all of my listed references, and was then asked to come in for an interview. I was interviewed first by the chef and then by his sous chef. The interview was mostly generic questions including questions regarding cooking techniques and recipes. There was no cooking test until after I was hired and very briefly trained on the restaurant's current menu.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Mitchell's Fish Market (Winter Park, FL) in June 2017.

    Interview

    The managers who interviewed me were very friendly and asked good questions. They expressed a willingness to train me in areas where I did not have experience. They called me back for a second interview, but I think I did not receive a final offer due to some issues with my availability.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Mitchell's Fish Market (Woodmere, OH) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Very quick interview process. They just want to know that you will be competent with your job and they also want to be sure that you have experience. If you have no serving experience they will not hire you. However, they may have you host for a while before hand until you get the hang of things. They do not quiz you on any wines or food knowledge which is kind of surprising.
