    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Pei Wei Asian Diner (Houston, TX) in May 2014.

    Interview

    The entire interview process was very straight forward and basic. However, to get it I had to go to the location to talk to the manager about hiring since I wasn't getting anywhere by doing it online. It was not a stressful process in the slightest.

    Leader Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pei Wei Asian Diner (Phoenix, AZ) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Forever long - months and months of on again, off again interviews. Overall the entire process was extremely unorganized at every turn and the visit to their "corporate" office was very unappealing. Many employees seemed cramed in to a small space and generally unhappy. I walked past one who was actively searching for a new job online! As it turns out the reviews on glassdoor from current and former employees related to this were extremely helpful - ask questions related to their profitability, extremely high turnover, lack of employee commitment and general business sense of current leaders. This business is hurting and in need of a drastic turnaround but convinced that the current leaders are not the ones to make it happen. They do not have the experienced needed to make this happen. They talk a big game but its all talk

    Wait Staff Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sterling Heights, MI
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Pei Wei Asian Diner (Sterling Heights, MI) in April 2009.

    Interview

    I applied in the first year of their opening. I simply walked in, as I was filling out the application, they noticed I was a hustler & extremely friendly & welcoming. The DM noticed my demeanor and sat down immediately to speak with me. At first he said all positions were full, but as I continued to talk, smile, and say i'd make a great addition to their team, he said I had exactly the type of energy they needed. Hired me on the spot.

    Questions: Describe yourself. What interest do you have in our company/ what could you contribute. etc...

    They're extremely professional. The training is very thorough. They have immaculate customer service, they basically oil any squeaky tire. I would suggest, if you don't like kissing unhappy customers behinds, you pass up working here.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I started off at 8/hr. quit with 9.50/hr, because I was efficient & took care of things that were not necessarily in my job description. that is how you get a raise.
    Anyone whom is positive & extremely outgoing, they love.

    Server Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Eden Prairie, MN
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Pei Wei Asian Diner (Eden Prairie, MN) in February 2009.

    Interview

    Somewhat informal interview. Happened during a slow period between lunch and dinner and was directly at one of the desks. Lasted 45 minutes and I was offered the job at the end of it. Nothing really technical just make sure you sound like you know what your talking about, you are well dressed and you have a professional demeanor.

    Interview Questions

    • Pretty generic interview questions such as explain a problem you encountered during a project/or previous job and how did you overcome it. Additionally, they asked what is your biggest weakness. The final question was posed as a scenario of how you would handle a situation with a customer. What should you do if a customer claims they ordered something besides the thing they received and how would you handle the situation? I just said that you first make check to make sure the customer isn't lying by checking their receipt. Regardless of what the customer's receipt says, I would then still go and tell the cook to make what they thought they were getting and deliver when finished. Pretty simple stuff.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. Flat rate.
