    Interview

    I seen an ads on Craigslist about a job fair that was going to happen but I decided to send in my resume instead. One of the managers called me to come in for an interview. I did an interview and that took about half an hour to an hour. The questions were very interesting but straight forward. I really enjoyed it. The manager made me feel very comfortable. Overall, the interview process was professional and fairly easy. He told me that if he was interested in offering me a position, I would hear back within a week or so. I got a call two days later from the manager offering me a job with them. The restaurant is still getting remodeled but will be open next month. I'm so excited to start.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Ruth's Chris Steak House (Tampa, FL) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Short and rushed. Only cared to see what you put on the application more than the resume you take your time on. Unless you have five years of serving experience from a restaurant as good as or better than Ruth Chris' don't waste your time applying.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Ruth's Chris Steak House (Charleston, SC) in March 2016.

    Interview

    too easy!!! hired on the spot they are desperate for employees because of the current manager who although has a BS lacks people skills to go with his degree. the toughest part was the drug test which I am not even sure they really look at when they return.
    do you have experience?
    when can you start?
    how are you working with others?
    you will be tested on material we give you- is that okay (never did it)
    can you show us how to set a table? and they dont set it as you would for fine dining
