    Bartender Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at McCormick & Schmick's (Chicago, IL) in Mar 2020


    I filled out an application back in March 2014, at their location on Wacker Drive in Chicago, after I had just moved from Naples, Fl. I saw that they were hiring and I used to go to their Naples location all of the time, and really enjoyed their food. I was interviewed by a really nice guy, he liked my job experience and my knowledge of the company. He arranged a second interview at a later date. I arrived on that date a little early and was told to sit at the bar and wait. After waiting for over an HOUR past my scheduled time, not to mention near a drafty revolving door letting the polar vortex chill in, I was finally greeted by a brunette girl. She was abrupt, rude, and made a jab about how I moved from Florida. She asked me maybe two questions and was done. I could tell that she didn't care about my skills or what I could offer to the company. She wasn't engaging, she didn't make eye contact, and I could tell she didn't want to be interviewing. She obviously was threatened by other females, and that is not a quality that someone in a management position should possess. You don't always get the job, so I'm not concerned about that. I'm just annoyed that the other manager clearly felt I would be a good fit and continued my interview process, making me come back for another interview. I'm annoyed that I was made to wait an HOUR past my scheduled interview time. I'm annoyed that I was met with a bitter, unprofessional employee who literally had my fate in their hands on if I got the job offer. I'm annoyed that this said employee completely wasted my time. Honestly this led me to work at a restaurant for the past 6 years that I have thrived and advanced in. I just never will forget the most unprofessional interview I have ever experienced. I'm glad that I didn't end up working with someone that petty. That whole experience ruined that company for me.

    "What's in a margarita?" "Like where have you worked before?" "Oh you're from FLORIDA?"
