    Kitchen Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Grand Rapids, MI
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Smokey Bones Bar and Fire Grill (Grand Rapids, MI) in October 2013.

    Interview

    The interview process starts with a brief conversation with the Manager on Duty. This is then followed by a personality profile test that is not a pass or fail test, just something to see what kind of person you are and how honest you really are or can be. The next process is about a 10-15 minute wait which can seem like an eternity when you're looking for a job and just waiting for a potential employer to just say you're hired and you start ???... Finally after all that depending upon what position you're applying for, or the restaurants' needs at present hand, you could be hired on the spot, if you passed the test I should say. This is put through the computer for grading I forgot to add, that's why you had to wait the 10-15 minutes, or you could be put off for another interview with another department head, or the General Manager. The questions are all pretty basic and once you've answered one, you've answered them all. You're now a master at the interview process. Good luck in the future and I hope all goes well with this really unpredictable, unstable company, with really pricey overrated food.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no really difficult questions to speak of because I wasn't asked too many myself in my experience, at least in my interview with the company. But that was when they were with a great "Holding" company by the name of Darden restaurants LLC.   1 Answer

Got told on site that I had the job and the hiring manager would contact me soon.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Smokey Bones Bar and Fire Grill.

    Interview

    Had to take a torturous 1 hour exam (which included high school algebra and geometry), in order to submit my application. After about two weeks, I scheduled an interview with the service manager. Many of the interview questions were related to the restauraunt and hospitality industry, but were pretty straight forward. Questions included possible scenarios (for example, what would you do if a guest was not satisfied with their meal),

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Smokey Bones Bar and Fire Grill (Pittsburgh, PA) in May 2012.

    Interview

    Interview process consisted of online application, personality test ,phone interview then a 1:1 interview with the district manager. I was told I interviewed great and was highly qualified for the position but they decided to hire from within the company. Would have been nice if they would have done that first instead of having me jump through hoops for the job.

    Bartender/Server Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbus, OH
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Smokey Bones Bar and Fire Grill (Columbus, OH) in February 2010.

    Interview

    First you have to take a ridiculous test with all kinds of irrelevant questions for a food server. Then the manager never came back until 45 minutes after I was done with the test. This made me run late for another appointment. I came back for a second interview and the head bartender interviewed me. She was insulting, rude and told me how much I did not want to work there and how irresponsible the staff was and how I would have to pick up the slack from them.
