    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Olive Garden Italian Restaurants.

    Interview

    I had two interviews, first with a service manager and second with the general manager. The interview was fairly easy. Make sure you show the managers you have a happy positive attitude. Having customer service experience helps to talk about what you might do in a tough customer situation. I had the second interview the same day as the first, but I know a lot of people had a few days in between their first and second. The second interview was more in depth than the first
