    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Starr Restaurants (Philadelphia, PA).

    Interview

    I had my first interview with service manager, then I met the director of operations, then I met with the GM. A little lengthy if you ask me. You also had to train I believe 14 shift or so in order to serve on the floor, which to me is entirely way too much, especially for how the restaurant, was not that busy (POD) there are other Starr Restaurants that are much busier that would be worth the effort for, but POD definitely not.

    Interview Questions

    • I had already worked at a casual fine dining establishment that served Asian cuisine, so there were not particularly difficult   1 Answer
