    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Olive Garden Italian Restaurants (Mount Pleasant, MI) in September 2013.

    Interview

    It was a hiring fair. I got a phone call and arrived at the restaurant a few days later. You fill out paperwork and then you wait to be interviewed. Interview was easy. This was a unique process because the restaurant was having its grand opening. We got a lot of training from culinary professionals around the state. Pretty much everyone was hired.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Olive Garden Italian Restaurants in March 2016.

    Interview

    I got a call 2 days after I applied online, interviewed 2 days later, and had orientation 4 days later. The manager who interviewed me was really busy at the time, and had to keep leaving to take care of things. I don't think I answered a single question fully, because they kept getting interrupted. Not a big deal for me, but three minutes after I sat down, the manager said I was giving off good vibes, and that I was hired. Literally the easiest interview in my life.
