    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at The Melting Pot (Whippany, NJ).

    Interview

    They were very nice...they give you a chance. I dressed in black. There was two positions they wanted me for server and host or server and bus boy. It didn't take long... I was tried the following day and failed because I didn't pick up a practice tray. Onething they watch you like a hawk with cameras and their staff grossly ate the customers food perhaps that was a test I failed?

    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.
