    Waitress Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Yard House in April 2014.

    Interview

    It was simple and straight forward. Met with two managers. First was the GM: standard questions, where have I worked previously, why I wanted to work at Yard House etc..
    Second was with the server manager: some repeated questions and then a more in depth behavioral interview questions. Then we talked about beer which was great and casual. We gave each other new beer recommendations. I was then hired.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Yard House (Las Vegas, NV) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Straight forward until they tell you it doesn't matter how much serving experience you have, they make you start at Front Desk or Food Running. Management at this particular location is incredibly condescending, prepare yourself to talk into a place flooded with big headed egos.

    Server Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Yard House (Tucson, AZ) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Talked to 2 different managers, both were very nice and talkative. We talked about my past job experiences and why I liked working in the restaurant industry. We ended up talking more about my past jobs and studying abroad than my actual work experience. It was a very easy interview and I felt very comfortable. They will ask you to describe/ sell an item to them, so know how to do that

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Yard House (Moorestown, NJ) in November 2015.

    Interview

    The hiring staff was very welcoming and always seemed very happy. From the day I walked into the door to fill out an application I was always greeted with a smiling face and sometimes even a high five! Everyone that worked there seemed to love their job and wanted to share that with everyone else. It was fantastic.

    Server Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Yard House (San Diego, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    First I applied online by filing out an electronic application from Darden. I got an email a few days later saying that I would be scheduled for an interview. I called and set up a time and I went to a location downtown that was strictly set up for the new restaurant's recruiting process. I first interviewed with the server manager. He asked me about my past experience as a server. He asked me how I would describe one of our signature dishes to the customers. After about a 10 minute chat, he asked me if I had time to stick around and talk to the general manager. I waited and talked to the manager and I was pretty nervous. I thought I had bombed the interview, but after he gave me the "We'll call you talk" I told him that that's not now I wanted it to go and then he asked, well, why should we hire you? I think he respected the fact that I was able to see my weaknesses and own up to it. He gave me the job!

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Yard House (Greenville, SC) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Walked into the restaurant and told the hostesses I was there for an interview. They sat me at a table, brought me water, then I waited for a manager. I spoke with two managers who both asked me questions. It was a pretty laidback interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Yard House (Burbank, CA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Smooth. Had 1 manager interview me 1-1 and asked standard interview questions. Nothing too aggressive and mostly open-ended questions. She allowed me to talk for most of the interview. Had the 2nd manager interview immediately after and he asked more personal questions, such as why I want to be a server, why I chose this company, what excites me about it.

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Yard House.

    Interview

    I can’t remember much of anything other than I was asked several times if I had any questions for *them* or rather, the interviewer himself, which felt odd. I was offput by the very forced notion that everyone was a family.
