    Waiter Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Old Spaghetti Factory (San Diego, CA) in March 2014.

    Interview

    I saw that OSF was hiring. I went in the next day dressed up properly to fill out and turn in the application. About a month goes by until I received a call from them asking if I still wanted an interview, and I told them I did. I had an interview with the Host Manager who asked me questions like.... So why would you want to work at the OSF? Tell me about yourself. *If you had three tables that just sat down at the same time how would you take care of all three of them equally?

    It was a very laid back interview that lasted about 5 minutes, until he invited me to the next interview with the General Manager the following day. The general manager asked me the same question, why would I like to work here.... and then some more interesting ones. What are some good qualities in a waiter? HE IS LOOKING FOR A SPECIFIC ANSWER! A correct answer was obviously good customer service....but he is waiting to hear you say EFFICIENCY.

    The general manager began saying how there has been waiters that have come into this job with the best customer service, but if you are not being efficient with your time then you will not last in this business. He began to talk about dress code at work, and after a few more minutes invited me to work for OSF!

    I was really excited that I got the job because I do not have any prior restaurant experience, and there was a very high volume of applicants that were received (When you filled out your application you put it in a folder with the rest of them). The interview process is very simple and easy, they just want to see that you are personable and come to the interview dressed up nicely (I wore: dress shoes, black pants, leather belt, tucked in long sleeve button up, cleaned up face)

    **Lastly for MEN: They have a certain rule for facial hair, I know that goatees are allowed, along with the choice of just a mustache, but for the interview it needs to be all clean cut, so your cheek area needs to be shaven.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Old Spaghetti Factory (Minneapolis, MN) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Honestly really basic stuff. If you don't get past it maybe serving isn't for you. Which is fine cause no one really wants to be a server at the end of the day anyways.

    Server Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Standard questions regarding the food service industry. Three interviews, first two with lower level management, with the final interview with the restaurant manager. No talks about salary, all are minimum wage plus tips. Relatively easy interview, but you need to have some common sense to answer correctly. If you don't have serving experience, they may start you in a different field like hosting or bussing.
