Is anyone not from the US? When did you get used to American food? I have been here for quite long but I still mostly eat Asian food (Chinese Indian Japanese Korean Thai Vietnamese in alphabetical order) so in the South, it was difficult to find good spots. Then I went to some of the established chains (Apple Bee’s Red Lobster Cheesecake Factory etc) and realized there wasn’t much for me to order. What would be a good way to get used to American food that most Americans eat?

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Red Lobster in Mar 2022

Interview

Easy. Not too much questions asked. Some were really bizarre though. They wanted me to picture someone who made me mad and then roleplay it. Oh well. Very strange but got the job. I guess.
