    Waitstaff Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Luby's (Austin, TX) in November 2012.

    Interview

    Usually done before they open (which is 11 am), so interviews are usually from 8-9:30. One manager sits with you, but it isn't long and if you're immediately given the job- then the trainer brings you the paperwork. That same day you're given a website information to fill out an employee access thing online so you could take a quiz and have access to your pay stubs in the future.

    Interview Questions

    • What qualities do you possess that would make you a great addition to the Luby's family?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation. Since position was waitstaff- the pay rate is only 2.13, but depending on tips-- you can walk away in 5 hours making 12-20 dollars an hour if you work for it.
