    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pei Wei Asian Diner (Sarasota, FL) in June 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was very quick, mainly because he was the only one working the cash register, so i had to wait a bit when customers came in. He talked the majority of the time, saying he wanted someone who can work individually and not mess around with other co workers (strong work ethic). He only asked one question and cut the interview short because there were more people coming in. He said he would call back after he talks with the GM because I'm only 16 (labor laws and stuff 😕).

    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

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Pei Wei Asian Diner (Hurst, TX).

    Interview

    Came in and sat with general manager. He offered me a drink and asked me a bit about myself. We found out that we had a mutual friend and had a good laugh. I was asked about experience and such. They did not drug test. On my application, I wrote that I wanted to start at 9.50, he asked me if I was worth 9.50. I was bold and confident, said I thought I was worth more and he laughed and gave me the 9.50 so I think if you have a chill interviewer, you could definitely negotiate salary.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Pei Wei Asian Diner (Beaumont, TX) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I thought the interview process was great. I was called in shortly after for hiring and filled out all of my paperwork to start working but never heard back from the manager after that. I called a week later after filling out my paperwork and was told that he would call me and tell me when I'd be scheduled to work. A week after that and still no call. I figured that he changed his mind and went with someone else. A month after filling out my paperwork I received an email stating that the position was filled and I did not get the position. I just wish communication was better. I was more upset that I gave up another job during this process. It was assumed that I was gettng hired.

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Pei Wei Asian Diner (Pompano Beach, FL) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I was told I was going to have an interview but they passed on me. I am still confused about that. I just followed a manager around to see how they opened the store. Anyone reading this review, good luck with getting hired for this company. It looks like an awesome company but make sure you actually get a sit down interview with a manager.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Pei Wei Asian Diner.

    Interview

    It was smooth and enjoyable. Not at all intimidating, especially with the nice atmosphere. The manager asked several situation questions/behavioral questions. At the end, we discussed what my hours could look like, and was told to return the next day to fill out paperwork. Wear something like a nice plain shirt, and look clean.
