    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sur La Table (Arlington, VA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Brief. Some questions were inappropriate. Just a form type interview - what is your biggest weakness, what is your strength, etc. Assistant manager interviewed - I didn't meet the actual manager till after I started. Overall the interview was super easy. It probably lasted for roughly 20 minutes in person and 15 minutes over the phone.

    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 through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Sur La Table in September 2018.

    Interview

    Very casual. Was more like talking to the manager instead of an interview. She did ask required questions, but it was more like a normal conversation of getting to know someone.

    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.
