Mission: Make every experience exceptional.
Kona Grills Corporate office has a lively, upbeat, happy atmosphere that spreads infectiously through the restaurant locations. The corporate staff truly cares about their location employees and making sure that they have every available resource needed. The communication between the corporate office and site locations is impeccable and everyone works together with a smile. The entire staff has the mindset to get the job done, get it done with accuracy, and have fun while doing it in a professional manner. Great group of managers and support staff. I would work with these lovely individuals again in a heartbeat.
The corporate office is very small, there is not enough room for the entire support staff, but they are moving into a new office that should give more leg room to the employees.
Advice to Management
Keep up the great work, keep up with the team building and employee appreciation. The staff is obviously loved and it shows in how they pride themselves in their work. I would say to encourage more team building from department to department, that would be the only constructive criticism I could give for Kona.
I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Kona Grill (San Antonio, TX) in December 2016.
Brief questions about customer experience since I did not have any Restaurant/Hostess experience
And asked about my supervisor experience in my retail background. Interviewed offsite and interview took less than 30 minutes with my resume in hand.
