    Ambassador Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Richmond, VA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Noodles & Company (Richmond, VA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Super natural, basically a normal conversation. The most important thing is to let your personality shine since that is what the interviewer was looking for. Obviously you have to be able to put customers at ease. Be prepared to talk about why you want to work there and why you would be a good fit. I talked about how my previous experiences prepared me for this job. For example, I worked with kids before and Noodles is a very family restaurant. Got hired on the spot.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Noodles & Company (Broomfield, CO) in November 2013.

    Interview

    You apply online and then if they're interested they'll call you in a couple days. They usually have you interview with a shift manager and then a general manager. Mine was just a general manager. They sat me down in the restuarant and asked if I'd like anything to drink. Then they came to start the interview. They didn't write anything down and made it a very relaxed interview.

    • They asked me general food working questions and how I would react to specific interactions with customers.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Noodles & Company.

    Interview

    Took 2 weeks, applied online and explained my personal relationship with the company. I was called in for an interview in the restaurant and spoke with the general manager and assistant manager. Not hard at all, just looking for people to come in and help out. I got a call few days later with an offer and started working immediately. Training is fairly straightforward.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Noodles & Company (Cincinnati, OH) in May 2010.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a very vague call from a manager (didn't even specify which Noodles and Company which was confusing as I had applied at 2) to come in and interview. I ended up showing up 30 minutes late because I went to the wrong one (my fault). The manager didn't find this a problem. He didn't know my name until he looked at my online application. He asked me what I was majoring in (economics and pre-med) and he was so impressed that he didn't ask me any questions at all and just told me I was hired. This seemed kind of strange as I thought I would be sent right out of the door for being late. He then told me he would call me in two days to confirm. Never called. I called once and was told by another manager that I would get a call back. No call back which is very rude. I found (a much better) job soon after.

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Noodles & Company.

    Interview

    I was told to take a seat in the dining room and the manager came out, he looked intimidating but he turned out to be a silly and funny guy. The interview didn't last long, he just asked what he needed to know. And as quick as I sat down I was out and ready for the first day on the job.

    Interview

    Went to fill out an application at the restaurant prior to its opening and was given an interview with the GM and a couple people from HR immediately after filling out my application. They were very friendly, looked over my application and asked me some questions about my work history. I had prior serving experience at a restaurant that operated similar to Noodles which they liked. No situational questions or questions that caught me off guard. I was hired on the spot.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Noodles & Company (Sacramento, CA) in March 2012.

    Interview

    Who will conduct the interview depends on which manager isn't busy. Typically the general manager of the restaurant is constantly busy so it's usually the assistant manager or one of the shift managers who conduct the interview. They don't always have a working printer so bring a resume just in case they can't print your online application with all your information and have your availability ready.
