    Shift Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Belle Meade, Davidson, TN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Zoës Kitchen (Belle Meade, Davidson, TN).

    Interview

    Working interview during busy lunch shift. I was so impressed with their professionalism and the quality of their food and cleanliness of their entire operation. My team members were very pleasant and welcoming and the kitchen staff was AMAZING in their efficiency and accuracy. I immediately knew this was a place where I could be proud on every level and I'd been missing that in my professional life.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Zoës Kitchen (Tulsa, OK) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online, then followed up to the store with a phone call a few days later. I was instantly asked to come in for a "working interview" the following day; the working interview went well! I was interviewed during a lunch rush on a Sunday, so all hands were on deck, but, despite being busy, the FOH team member I was paired with helped me along the way and gave me her full attention. I was on the register and greeting costumers- for anyone applying, head my harping: smile and make the customers feel welcomed and appreciated- this practically got me the job in itself.. friendliness goes a long way!! After the two hour working interview I was given lunch on Zoe's and sat down with an Assistant Manager to discuss Zoe's values and what a FOH job would entail, I was then offered a job then ut on the schedule the following week.

    Hostess/Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Zoës Kitchen (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    I contacted and got an interview at Zoe's through an app called hirewire. After I scheduled an interview on the same day with the manager, I went in and was greeted warmly with the offer of a soda. The whole interview lasted maybe 10 to 15 mins. He basically just asked my experience (which was none), my availability, and how many hours I wanted to work. I was practically hired on the spot. I've been working there for about two weeks now and I love it.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    The manager asked me how much I would like/expecting to get paid, and as my first job I said around $8.25 or $8.50 and he said okay $8.50. After I came in and filled out the paperwork he told me they would start me off at $9.00/hour without me asking. Great company!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Zoës Kitchen (Tallahassee, FL) in July 2016.

    Interview was straightforward.. Asked availability and experience. Asked why do I think I would be good for the company .. Only negative is they said I would be hearing from them , and I never did , even after calling. Other than that , it was a great interview . They give you a drink while you wait. It was warming and pretty welcoming .

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Zoës Kitchen in April 2016.

    Interview

    I actually applied for another location which i was told i didn't meet the minimum by their career website. I got a call two days later asking if i was still interested in working with the company but at a different location.

    I told him yes. Set up an interview the very next day for 10am. He asked if i would have time to also do a work interview where I will work for an hour or so to show what i could do.

    It went well and I got the job! The people there seems very laid back and have a love for the company.
