    Server Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at O'Charley's (Tupelo, MS) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I went to my interview and she was nice at first but then it turned sour so fast. She asked me why I quit my previous jobs and I told her the truth. She asked me about applebees how much I made as a server and I told her that I didnt make much. Then she asked if I had kids and I said yes. Then she told me that ppl with kids and who are food stamps(which I'm not) will lie saying they made less than they actually do so they can eat a bigger check. So she basically called me a liar. She asked me what was my longest job I held (which she asked twice before so she already knew) but she made say 8 months then she asked do I consider that a long time and I told her for my past jobs yes it is. Then she tells me that she has been working for 14 years and that is a long time. She made me feel like nobody should give me a chance. It was awful she said a lot of other stuff but this would be a novel. Do not work for these ppl

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at O'Charley's (Rock Hill, SC) in February 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was brief and straight to the point. I was asked if I had any experience in the restaurant industry and basic personality questions. I think the biggest thing was making sure I could handle the pressure of several things going on at one and multitasking.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at O'Charley's.

    Interview

    Seven years ago, we applied in person, which gave us the opportunity to make a great first impression. After filling out the application, it was brought to the manager on duty, who came out after a few minutes to talk to me. We talked for approximately 30 minutes, him asking about prior work experience and my employment expectations. He also gave me the opportunity to ask questions as well. After the interview, he told me that he'd call me by the next afternoon as to whether I was hired - he wanted to give the other managers the chance to review applications as well. The next morning he called and asked me to come in and fill out paperwork, and he gave me my training schedule.

    Online application was similar to most applications done for this job field. Received phone call the next day.

    Interview

    David the manager is a pretty cool boss. There was absoulutely no pressure when I went in for the interview. The environment and people are accepting. They teach you training a week after your interview giving you plenty of time to situate yourself and prepare for work.
