    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.

I told him I could as soon as possible, and he said to come the following Thursday ready to work.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Perkins Restaurant and Bakery (Cleveland, OH) in March 2013.

    Interview

    I have only retail/hotel experience and worked at a panera. i was surprised when he wanted to interview me. the place was like 25 min away. i didnt realize how far it was and was exactly on top instead of 5-10 min early like i prefer. he accused me of being late and i told him im not normally late and he called me a liar. rest of interview was awkward and he went over every detail of my application, which no one usually does. i hate repeating myself. it's like just read it yourself.

    then he told me he was trying to hire for days and i am available nights. why would you waste my time. then he told me i would make more there on 3 hr shift then 8/hr at a hotel. this is false. at only $40 in tips a night on a 4 hr shift you would bring home 44 a night 4x a night which is still less than i would get paid at a hotel.

    thought he was rude and unprofessional. if he offers me job, i will not take it
