    Server Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Earls Kitchen + Bar in June 2010.

    Interview

    The interview is not really an interview. They hire first on looks, and ability to dress well, second on availability, third experience. Wear heels to your interview, and pick an outfit that is appropriate for the season/time of day, complements your body, but shows your own unique personality and style. (Ex. Jeans, heels, cute scarf, nice top that complements your neckline without showing too much cleavage, accessorize with big pieces of jewelry** they like to see that you can accessorize because once you're on the floor in all black accessories are all that you have to standout and be different from every other girl)

    Interview Questions

    • They ask a lot about your future plans/goals/school etc I think this is to filter out temporary staff. Training is extensive , 2-3 weeks they want their staff to last. Not a job you would get for a couple months in a summer.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Earls Kitchen + Bar (Surrey, BC) in May 2010.

    Interview

    I was contacted via telephone for a job interview after having submitted a resume in person. The interview was fairly casual, though it was recommended to me to dress "attractive". The interviewer described the training process to be fairly demanding in terms of learning all food and beverage products. I was expected to receive a phone call back to schedule training soon.

    Interview Questions

    • The interviewer asked the dollar amount that I was familiar with selling in prior serving positions.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Earls Kitchen + Bar in May 2015.

    Interview

    Walk-in interview.
    The owner was the one conducting the interview.
    While I was waiting for my turn, I noticed that the interview was going really fast like 2 mins per applicant. I thought it was a bad sign.
    When it was my turn, it only took me a minute to get the job offer. The owner just asked me to tell him something about myself and that's it. He asked me to comeback on Monday to start the training.
    Couldn't believe it at first. I thought maybe I just heard him wrong.
    Obviously he's hiring based on looks and first impression. Not really your work experience
