    Pastry Chef Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Saint Petersburg, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Ruth's Chris Steak House (Saint Petersburg, FL) in December 2015.

    Interview

    It was straight forward; it seemed as though they were subliminally desperate for good new employees because of lack luster work ethic from current employees since it was a new restaurant.

    Pretty standard interview. Went in, filled out an application, got called in for an interview within a week or so. They are certainly looking for team focused people to hire. Make sure you can work well with others and not be afraid to as for help when its needed. The interview questions were rather simple but certainly not to underestimate. I met with both the general manager and the front of house manager, both of which were very pleasant people.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ruth's Chris Steak House (Atlanta, GA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I applied through indeed and about a week later received an email to call to schedule an interview. It was scheduled for the next day with the GM but he had an emergency so I interviewed with another memeber of the management team. The interviewer was very nice and comforting. Asked very detailed questions. It was easy and she explained the hiring process in great detail. 4 hours after the interview I was informed they no longer had any open server positions. I knew within 5 minutes of the interview I wouldn't get the job, however It was such a positive experience so it didn't bother me because I'm already gainfully employed. None the less the interview was really positive and they let me down easy. I thanked them for their time and that was the beginning and end of my pursuit.

    Server Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Fairfax, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ruth's Chris Steak House (Fairfax, VA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    2-3 interviews with different managers, and they don't hire on the spot. Managers discuss and compare notes from the interview and make a decision together, so you have to wait a few days to find out if you're hired. Very general questions about your experience. Mostly they want to see a level of confidence coupled with 2-3 years of restaurant experience. Some wine questions but lack of wine knowledge is not a deal breaker.

    Interview Questions

    • Where do I see myself in 5 years?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    They are only a little flexible when it comes to scheduling, a.nd that is the only thing to negotiate. Saturdays are required, and most holidays are required also
