    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Perkins Restaurant and Bakery (Lehigh Acres, FL) in October 2015.

    Interview

    It was pretty simple. I went in when they were doing open interviews, and went through the process very quickly. The woman was a bit snobby, but she was trying to be polite. She definitely didn't treat me like she had treated the girl before me (I had over heard her interview from the booth next to mine).

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Perkins Restaurant and Bakery in August 2015.

    Interview

    It was a pretty simple interview, the manager asked me basic questions about my strenghths, weaknesses, and all of that. The atmosphere was very laid back, although it was 2 pm so that very well could be why. I hope you like old people, because that was 99.5% of the population in there. Overall a clean and friendly place.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Perkins Restaurant and Bakery (Appleton, WI) in August 2015.

    Interview

    They have a 2 interview system. I met with the scheduling/assistant manager first, and she asked basic questions about myself, nothing very job-related. I got a phone call a day or two later to meet with the store manager for a second interview where she asked more in-depth questions. She asked about prior server experience (I hadn't any), how I felt about a restaurant atmosphere, and asked a little more about me as a person. I was hired to temporarily be a host, as people often are to start, and would later become a server. Orientation was to be held about three days later.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Perkins Restaurant and Bakery (Orange City, FL).

    Interview

    It was an open interview but the interviewer rarely asked any questions. Basically he just said "you're not gonna have a social life if you work here." It just wasn't a great experience.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Perkins Restaurant and Bakery (Los Angeles, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by the recruiter first asking general background questions about my previous employers. The recruiter then passed the application on to Café Rio who contacted me within 24 hours to set up a phone interview the following week.. The HR representative called at the appointed time asking me questions about my past employment, they asked me to describe a tough situation and how I handled it. Another question was describe your day as a Regional Manager. A concern that I had was the HR representative conducted the interview from home with a child fussing in the background during the whole interview. I felt that I did not get the full attention of the interviewer.
