    Waitress Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Hunt Valley, MD
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at California Pizza Kitchen (Hunt Valley, MD) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I was greeted by the General Manager, we sat down and briefly went over my resume. It didn't really feel like an Interview, it was mostly conversation and going over what my job would look like, e.g salary, dress code etc. I was offered the job on the spot and can't wait to start working there.
