Dishwasher Interview

Easy Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Olive Garden Italian Restaurants (Springfield, MO).

Interview

My initial contact with the company was thru an existing employee I knew. The whole hiring process was extremely simple with 1 interview and took approximately an hour total. This included filling out the paperwork and a short 10 minute interview by the manager. The interview consisted mainly of questions regarding my ability to physically handle the work in the type of environment I would be working in. Other questions consisted of a basic rundown of the application questions for my confirmation and additional detail. I was hired on the spot and started my position within the week. The manager was extremely courteous throughout every step.

My coworkers were excellent guys and I didn't encounter any issues with a single one.

And proceeded asking me questions. they didn't seem to excited with the interview they went very fast and i had to ask constantly about what they had just said.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Olive Garden Italian Restaurants (Snellville, GA) in April 2018.

    Interview

    Ask me questions on why Dishwasher is important and that's basically. The other questions where about my previous job. The interview lasted 2 minutes and I was told to that I was going to get a call from their "chef". This was my 2nd time going in for an interview and both times they were unprofessional and didnt give me an update for the job. I will never eat at this place or even talk about this place after the experience I had with them twice. Don't waste your time trying to be a Dishwasher here because they will waste your time. I call them almost every day since my interview to get an update since no one called me after 3 days of the interview.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email the next day telling me to call the restaurant and schedule an interview. I called to schedule, and the manager told me that my first interview would actually be right then on the phone. I was completely unprepared and sounded SO STUPID. I would do your research and at least be completely ready before calling just in case they decide to do the first interview over the phone.
