Olive Garden Host Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied in-person. I interviewed at Olive Garden Italian Restaurants (Eugene, OR) in April 2012.

Interview

Three interviews with two floor managers and the GM. Once I had gone through all of the managers, they went alone and talked for a bit. Then the first manager I met with came back and said they all agreed that I would be a great fit with the organization. They did check my references before I signed any paperwork.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Olive Garden Italian Restaurants (Miami, FL) in November 2011.

    Altogether the process took about a month. They do not drug test.

    They called about 2 week after I applied. First I met with 1 of the assistant manager. He asked typical interview questions. ( What does customer service mean to you, what can you add to our team?) Two days after I met with the general manager, he asked a few questions about me, told me about the uniform and offered me the job. Two weeks later I started the paid training.

    When I applied for this position Friday, It took them the weekend and I received an email Monday to call and schedule a time to be interviewed. I set up an appointment the very next day to show them I was interested in the job. I interviewed with the GM and she was very cool and upbeat. She asked me why I wanted to be a host and I answered in detail with complete explanation. She went through the rest of my application and made me an offer that I accepted. I am ecstatic to be apart of this company!
