    Front of House Member Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Newk's Eatery.

    Interview

    Walked in and asked for the manager. Got hired and was working in less than a week. Asked maybe one question. They are always hiring because of really high turnover. They also generally hire a lot of teenagers. Unfortunately, they can seem to differentiate between teens that want to work and the lazy kind of teenager. Leads to issues once they are hired.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Newk's Eatery (Atlanta, GA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    The interviewer was very precise and kind while he spoke to me. He was very fast paced and thorough with every I was question asked. It seemed as though he was very interested in what skills I had to offer. The fact that I was made an offer ensuring me that I'd be contacted if any weekend positions opened was very helpful and put me at ease once the interview was complete.

    Negotiation

    My advice to any future "interviewees" would be to make sure they are prepared for anything coming their way. Be prepared to move quickly and answer quickly. Lastly, if you ever feel like anything is moving to fast, it's not against the rules to take a deep breath and think.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Newk's Eatery (Nacogdoches, TX) in June 2016.

    Interview

    It was a 2 part interview process. I applied and about 1-2 weeks later I was called for an interview. The first one I met with I believe the assistant manager and we just talked about recent experiences, a little bit about the company, what made me apply, etc. It was very easy. The second one, I met with the general manager, she asked a little more about why I applied, did I have any experience, and a little about myself. The first interview was on Wednesday, the second on Friday, I got offered the position and did orientation the same day.

    Prep Cook Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Baton Rouge, LA

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Newk's Eatery (Baton Rouge, LA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    No interview. Phone call telling me I was hired. An assistant manager called me after I filed my application online. There was a folder full of employment documents to digitally sign and only one chance to print all of them. Later changing my pay to direct deposit required obtaining a form from my bank but after that it was the next week when direct deposit started. Their corporate functions are very efficient but they allow young managers too much leeway.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Newk's Eatery (Clearwater, FL) in December 2015.

    Interview

    The store is still under construction so the interview was conducted outside. The application was pretty simple but it did require a six problem math part to be done without a calculator. Just basic addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. The interviewer was very nice, up tone and loved working for this company.
