    Hostess Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Novi, MI
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Olga's Kitchen (Novi, MI) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Just asked me dumb questions to make it sound like they were interviewing me but later that manager that hired me told me he just calls people in for interviews to see if they are good looking or not which is creepy and wrong and probably why we have lazy workers.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Olga's Kitchen.

    Interview

    I first met with the assistant manager and had a basic "get to know you" interview. She then set up an interview for me with the store's GM. After a 30 minute conversation (during which I barely got a word in) I was offered the job. There were no hard, hair pulling questions.

    Negotiation

    The one problem I encountered is I was offered a position as Good to Go with the plan of transferring me to a server, and after a year it still didn't happen. I had to transfer to a different store for this to happen.

    Catering Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Olga's Kitchen in January 2012.

    Interview

    HR manager responded to my resume. Everything seemed very professional and was given a phone interview by HR manager. A few days later I was referred to the Marketing Manager. Quick phone conversation to schedule a 1:1 interview - no details of the job or what area of metro Detroit the job would cover.

    For the interview, I had to drive well over an hour and had asked during the phone call, why she would pick that location. I was in that area on that day, but later found out it was part of the territory for the position. If I had known it what areas they were looking to cover, I would not have wasted their time or mine. Communication and territory needs to be listed on the job description.

    Overall I wasn't impressed with the information given regarding the job, territory and expectations. Most of the answers to my questions regarding the job were vague at best. Not impressed. The interviewer more focused on my dates of employment more than my skills and experience.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Olga's Kitchen in December 2009.

    Interview

    I was called a few days after I put the application in. They wanted me to come in approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes from the time I received the phone call. It was the week of christmas and this Olgas is located inside a mall so it was bound to be a bit busy. There was a lined formed outside so I stood in line and waited to be interviewed. Pretty soon another girl showed up to be interviewed. She was scheduled 15 minutes after me. I ended up waiting over an hour before they interviewed me. Finally someone came and got me and it was my turn to be interviewed. The interview lasted about 10 minutes and I was hired on the spot.

    Interview Questions
