    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at California Pizza Kitchen (Skokie, IL) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Applied online and received an email about an hour or two later asking to come in for an interview. First interview super quick and easy interview with manager. Came back the next day to talk with the other manager. The second manager seemed very interested in me and was describing the entire training process, etc. Was told I would hear back soon but never got a call
