    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at The Melting Pot (Tucson, AZ) in September 2014.

    Interview

    My interview was extremely long (almost 2 hours) and my interviewer told me he didn't want to hire me because I dont seem stressed enough for him but he really needs people so he decided to "give me a chance". As it turned out, he didnt even work there but for another Melting Pot hours away. I am the only server left from my training group 2 years ago.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at The Melting Pot (Chicago, IL) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through Harri and was asked to schedule an interview within a day. When I arrived, I was asked no interview questions, only my age and availability and then handed all of the paperwork to work there. The whole situation did not feel very professional and I could tell they were understaffed/needed anyone available.
