    I have been working at Cheesecake Factory full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are so many great people that are willing to help you to succeed in your career especially the chefs. Even though there are a variety of foods that just means you can learn so much more.

    Cons

    The Cheese Cake Factory has such a big menu. It does take a little bit to know everything that you need to know, which includes recipes, and what plate goes on what. If you want to move up you have to prove yourself even on your own station, but you might have to wait to move up because there are so many people on the line and you don't get your full 40 hours.

    Advice to Management

    I don't really have any advice because they all do there best, but I do wish they would give us more hours because nobody can live off 30 hours.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cheesecake Factory.

    Interview

    Interview process was very quick, found recruiter and HR to initially be very friendly and outgoing. Was not given an offer, was told a timeline that was not followed for a decision, but the worst was despite asking both recruiter and hiring manager for feedback on decision, was completely ignored. No return call or email.

    Interview Questions
