    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Ponderosa in December 2012.

    Met with them for 5 minutes literally. They asked when I could start and told me that I got the job. Pretty much they just had me to come in to tell me that I got the job.

    Negotiation

    I told them when I started that I only needed 2 days off which was my son's First Birthday and his First Birthday party... they agreed, but when the time came they scheduled me both days and refused to give me them off or even to trade someone. They told me that if I didn't show up for either one of those days that I was fired. I chose my son's most important day over them.

    Waitress Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chillicothe, OH
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Ponderosa (Chillicothe, OH) in April 2011.

    Interview

    The interview here went quite well. I got called in for an interview about 3 days after I applied and got offered the job via phone call about 4 hours after my interview. Both managers that hired we were very friendly but stern, I quickly got the feel that this was a fun place to work, but they got stuff done. That's exactly how the job was too. The interview questions were basic: work experience, best/worst quality traits, basic customer service knowledge, etc.

    Interview Questions

    • None of the questions were hard. Most of the waitresses, myself included, were first-time waitresses and the managers realized that. The most awkward to answer was our worse quality, I always feel like this is the question that can steer the interview result.   1 Answer
