    Barista/Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dallas, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Paradise Bakery & Café (Dallas, TX) in July 2016.

    Interview

    It wasn't even an interview- they pretty much just asked me how soon I could come in and how many hours I was willing to take on. I was immediately hired and was never asked whether or not I actually wanted the job. They literally gave me a uniform shirt halfway through the "interview" and jumped right into discussing direct deposit slips and what to expect. She also mentioned that they were severely understaffed and had eight open positions I could choose from which made me kind of hesitant to take the job at all.

    Interview Questions

    • They didn't ask me interview questions. It was less of an interview and more of getting me started as soon as possible.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Paradise Bakery & Café.

    Interview

    very thorough and concise. The overall process took about a total of twenty one minutes and ended quick after that. I received my job placement the following week . The interviewer was pretty unclear as to who he was or what his role in the whole process was. I was not sure if they were a manager or a supervisor, but they seemed to be in charge at the moment.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Paradise Bakery & Café (Phoenix, AZ) in September 2015.

    Interview

    I filled out an application about 2 weeks before they called me and schedule an interview. I was interview by two people one after another in the dinning room. They also interview someone at the same time. Interview was pretty simple. It was strange but I applied to a different location online then the one that called me. I was dressed more formal but the other person being interview was in jeans. The dress code is jeans and a black tee with belt and non slip shoes.

    I applied online, the next day I got a phone call asking me to come in for an interview. I met the manager and he was very straightforward that he was looking for people, and was willing to give me a chance. He then informed me I would start out as a salad maker, and that I would need to wear black pants and non-slip shoes. He also told me the company would provide a chef outfit and cap.
