Employer logoThe Cheesecake Factory
Pride, Passion & Purpose isn't just about the work in our restaurants but in our communities as well. Every year since 2009, Feeding America's Hunger Action Month is when our staff donate hundreds of thousands of pounds of peanut butter to local food banks across the country. We chose peanut butter because it's a shelf-stable, ready-to-eat protein that requires no preparation. Anyone, even children, can simply open a jar and enjoy a delicious PB sandwich. Over the last 15 years, we're proud to have donated nearly 2,000,000 pounds of peanut butter to Feeding America locations across the country.

      I sat at a booth with a manager and talked about my experience serving and how I handle high intensity situations. We talked about scheduling and then the general manager came out. She told me about the onboarding process and hired me.

      Describe to me your most stressful shift as a server.
