    Easy Interview

    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
