    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Rubio's Restaurants (Orlando, FL) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Responded to an Indeed message. Sent in my resume and had an interview a week later. Discussed work experience/future plans in the store with District Manager, lasted about an hour and a half. DM was very friendly and engaging. Then spoke with Director of People Services a couple weeks later who was also lovely. Talked about experience and where I saw myself down the line. Last interview was shadowing a lunch shift followed with a casual conversation with District Manager. An offer was made about a week later. Although I rejected the offer for a competing offer, the entire experience was fantastic and the company seems to genuinely care about its people. I highly recommend sending in an application if you're in the market.
