    Prep Cook Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Arlington, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at sweetgreen (Arlington, VA) in May 2019.

    Interview

    Applied through the website and was Emailed the very same day asking if I could come in for an interview 2 days from then. Before the interview I was handed a piece of paper to fill out asking about my availability and experience. Next to the availability box there was a note saying “open availability” or lack of will affect the hiring decision. I had a lot of availability which was helpful. The rest of the paper listed things I’ll be required to do/use on the job (cash register, industrial kitchen equipment, commercial dishwashing, use of a chef’s knife, preparing food) and asked whether or not I had 0, 1, 2, or 3+ years of experience with each one. Thankfully I had at least 1 year of experience with all of them. I was asked only two really basic, easy interview questions then was hired on the spot.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at sweetgreen (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I interviewed with multiple people after waiting for about fifteen minutes. Interviewer was asking us both questions and answering at the same time in a mildly chaotic way. It was a little awkward as the interviewer seemed to make a personality judgement after about 5 minutes, leaving the two of us answering a roll of bored questions with no follow up or attention paid. which is fair, but yeah, awkward.

    Assistant Coach Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at sweetgreen (New York, NY) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I met with an Area leader where we had an interview in the corporate office. He was very informative, spoke a lot of his success and how he got involved with sweetgreen. He painted a good picture of the company and definitely knew how to motivate. In the long run, the company does not offer as much support as they should. Instead of opening so many locations, they should focus on the one's that are already opened and perfecting their concept. Otherwise, they are going to continue to lose their good people and be far more worst than chipotle without any possible comeback.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at sweetgreen (Boston, MA) in June 2018.

    Interview

    The process was pretty long for me. After I submitted my application, I received an email with in an hour asking my availability for phone interview. I was interviewed 3 times; twice on the phone and once at the “Day in the Life”. It was a lot to be offered a position a lot lower than I currently hold. (GM) A simple “We’re sorry we didn’t find you suitable for the position” instead of a low ball offer.
