Interview

Very relaxed interview. I interviewed with the resident chef there and he just asked a few questions over the phone and didn't seem like he was really all that concerned with how you answered them. I came in for training and that was also very low-stress.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sur La Table (Los Angeles, CA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a phone call the next week. It was a simple phone screen to gauge my interest and availability and we scheduled a phone interview for a few days later. The phone interview was short and we mostly just talked about my customer service experience. We then scheduled an in-store interview for the following week. It was a one-on-one interview with the resident chef.

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sur La Table (Ann Arbor, MI) in February 2015.

    Interview

    They just ask you a few simple question, they will hire you on the spot because they are so desperate, they talk to you in the kitchen if that is the position you are going for, then after they hire you they will ask you to fill out paper work and ask you what day you can start and thats it.

    Interview

    The hiring process was simple. Show your qualifications, display relevant experience. I had to fill out one to two behavioral questions per category to send to the corporate level. The employer completed a background check on me, and I was subsequently hired.

    Negotiation

    No negotiations. All I wanted was that job, and I was excited to accept something entry-level.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sur La Table.

    Interview

    I first received a phone call interview and then an in person interview with one of the chefs. The phone interview and in person interview were both very basic and asked standard questions. Overall, it was a breeze. I got the job and realized I didn't need to be as nervous as I was prior to the interview.

    Too long for an $8.00 an hour job. It took two weeks for me to go through the background check for a part-time job that I made $8.00 an hour.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Sur La Table (Alexandria, VA) in May 2014.

    Interview

    A phone screen; in person interview with the culinary program manager and store manager. Easy predictable questions that seemed like they came out of a "how to interview" book.

    The background check took nearly a month. I had forgotten about the job by the time they called me to set up a start date. They really need to work on that process, for a minimum wage part time job it shouldn't take more than a month to get hired.
