    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Old Country Buffet (Victorville, CA) in January 2012.

    Interview

    I had walked in, got an interview on the spot. Was told to come back in later in the week to complete the second half of my interview with the other manager. Came in at THEIR requested scheduled time and the second manager said they weren't hiring at all because it was slow. They said come back after the first of the year. Came back in same thing, except when I went for the second part of the interview they were too busy and had me come back the following week. Came back and they were busy AGAIN. They scheduled my interview for the following week and when I came in they said the position had been filled. That's 6 times I was told by them to come back in for a scheduled interview. Very unprofessional management. Very glad I didn't get offered a job, although I would have liked to have not been yanked around for over a month while I was trying to schedule school. I could care less that I didn't get the job, not a scorned interviewee, just upset at the process.

    Interview

    I Walked in and was immediately told I had the job, and that I just needed to interview for formality. They asked about previous employment and then said I seemed more than qualified. As a server you are only bussing tables and talking to people, not actually serving tables. It was a very short and simple interview. They set up my orientation day right away, and that was basically it.

    Well, when you come to your interview on time, you still have to wait an extra 15 minutes for the manager to come out. The interview was really simple, basic questions. I passed the first interview, but didn't pass the second.

    I applied online and got a call the next day to come in. I came in and greeted the kitchen manager and we went in the dining room that was cut off from the main room. He asked me typical questions about my availability, school and all that and then he told me that he was gonna bring the restaurant manager in to talk to me. He came in and he asked questions that were more into baking and he had a recipe with him that he wanted me to memorize it and quizzed me on it. After I passed that he told me that he had other people he had to interview and if I got the job he would call later on that day and tell me. He called and I got the job.
