Restaurant Manager Interview

Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Yard House (Springfield, VA) in November 2015.

Interview

LONG in length. You fill out an application and do a personality/basic knowledge test. If they're interested you'll receive an email asking to set up an interview. The first one is with the management recruiter. It's pretty brief. However be clear when passing along your salary requirements. Mine was "quoted" wrong and therefore resulted in a much lower offer than I expected. If they like you they put you in contact with a regional director for you presumed market. That is a much longer conversation. Goes more in detail of work experience, how you handle certain situations etc. Finally you have an interview with the GM of your presumed location. (FYI, TO MY KNOWLEDGE THEY ARE LIKE CHEESECAKE FACTORY AND BRINGS EVERYONE IN AT THE RESTAURANT MANAGER LEVEL. EVEN IF YOUVE BEEN AGM OR GM) that is the determining factor. Makes sense, you work directly with them. After everyone puts in their input they say yes or no. Idk what happens when it's a no because I got a yes. They then send you background check info, you pass they call to say they want to give you an offer. If you give a verbal acceptance they send you to do a drug test. You have to do it within 48 hours. You pass you get an offer. I will stress.... coming from a GM stand point the offer was really low. My previous two positions were at GM level and they both superseded this offer. Seems like a great company and it is a great corporate structure. (Not for you if you're not into corporate structure) I passed on the offer. Wasn't sold on some things I heard. Regional already seemed kind of manipulative. I was told we want you but when I countered the offer I was asked why I needed that amount which was only $X,XXX less than my previous salary. But there's my experience.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Yard House (Irvine, CA) in June 2011.

    Interview

    The process took at least 2 weeks. Phone interview was the first interview which was set up by a restaurant recruiter. Personality test online was completed. In person interview at corporate office. It was funny because the interviewer asked me about the other jobs I had that were not related to working in the restaurant which totally through me off guard. The floor interview shadowing the manager was the last interview. The managers I worked with that day were wonderful and very encouraging. They helped guide me to what needed to be accomplished. I left that interview loving the company and really wanting the job which I was offered a few days later.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Yard House (Irvine, CA) in May 2011.

    Interview

    Very in-depth yet casual interview process. Yard House wasn't overly concerned with your business acumen or skill set. They were more interested in the person applying for the position and how well they could relate to others.
