    Kitchen Associate Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at 85 Degrees Coffee (Los Angeles, CA) in September 2013.

    Interview

    They mostly ask you the basic questions like, so tell me about yourself?, why do you want to work here?
       Than they give you a scenario like what would you do in this situation, for an example the interviewer asks, what would you do if a customer needs help but you need put some bakery into the oven and restock the bread.
       Than after you get hired I don't know if they do this in any other state but in California you have to do a 3-day evaluation and what this evaluation is, is that they train you and grade you base on your performance during the 3 days.
        They also check on your background so be prepared to bring in 2 forms of id.

    Interview Questions

    • The most difficult question would probably be the one where they give you a scenario so pay attention to this one.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I really wanted to be a store front associate but it wasn't available at the time, being a kitchen associate was pretty tough and fast paced and they will get mad if you are not doing it right.
