Intuit
Bookkeeper was asked...October 26, 2015

He asked how long I have been keeping books for clients and what type experience that I had with a restaurant.

1 Answers

I have worked with many clients previously in various insutries including restaurants and understand the demands and needs of the restaurant. He owns a small restaurant with less than 50 employees and has recently acquired this restaurant. This new place is larger than his previous and there will be more expense, as well as an increase in projected sales. I was able to come to an agreement as to the terms of the work I perform and that most of the data entry, payroll and tip report would be done in my office as opposed to the restaurant. He was comfortable in meeting with me and allowing me to work in my office and com to the restaurant biweekly. Less

Saying this interview process was an utter waste of time would be an understatement. Very few questions about my skill set. The co-owner was mostly concerned about my lifestyle and asked questions about my hobbies, interests, and my life experiences. He said he was not concerned about my qualifications and said I was more than qualified with my past work experience and education. I have the impression the co-owner had ulterior motives in interviewing me and other candidates. I feel the interviews went extremely well, he said he would let me know either way within a week. I've contacted him twice (phone and email) to get the status of his decision. He never had the decency to get back to me.

Let me assure you that 100% of the applicants who applied for this position were not contacted by Shawn, as I was one of them. I've checked my spam folder. The fact that you bring up your company culture and fairness of work place leads me to wonder if you've had EEOC issues. Reflecting on the questions during your interview process, you did seem to be weeding out certain demographics. Best of luck in your future endeavors. Less

Do not waste your time with Rook Coffee.

I went to the second interview today with two area managers and to my surprise it was the worst interview in my entire life. First they don't understand you because English is their second language, second they try to use everything you said against you, they need to polish their people's skills, they are very negative, and try to make one feel less than them. BAD FOR BUSINESS! !!!! Less
