    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Tom Douglas (Seattle, WA) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Through another employer, I asked for a connection to the Tom Douglas organization. I was introduced and this connection introduced me to the catering manager. After exchanging a few e-mails with the catering manager he asked me to come in for a conversation to learn more about Tom Douglas restaurants. We met up for 45 minutes to an hour and our conversation went well. I asked about his background, how he became a part of the organization, and more about potential positions. At the time I thought this conversation was the pre-cursor to being invited back for an interview. By the end of the conversation the hiring manager offered me a position. Instead of a server he asked if I was interested in being an ambassador, saying that it might be a better fit for my personality type.

    I really appreciated his laid-back, natural, yet professional approach. I also felt like he was accurate in his assessment of my personality and finding a position that fit well. After our conversation I began the hiring process which is more extensive that most businesses in the food industry. Upon completing your paperwork, you are invited to a new hire class to learn about the several locations, types of cuisine, and company culture.
