    Food Service Manager Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Thompson Hospitality.

    Interview

    I was in another position when a recruiter contacted me via the work location. They asked for the manager and proceeded to probe whether l would be interested in interviewing for a management position at another nearby college. At that time our account was in the rebid process, so l listened to what he had to say. He also asked if I had fellow managers that may be interested in positions. He called twice more and was cocky saying we lost the account I was at. All the while I'm thinking dumb a.. no we didn't, but I didn't tell him otherwise. Finally, he tells me someone will be in touch with me from the corporate office. Well it took over three weeks for one of the head honchos, to contact me. I let that honcho know that three weeks is too long to have an applicant waiting to hear from someone. Well he got his feelings attacked and ended the call. All I could do was laugh. And that itself left a bad impression about those who run the company and the recruiting tatics.
