    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Jack Astor's (Toronto, ON) in April 2014.

    Interview

    You hand in the application and take an aptitude test. Depending on the results you will get an interview with one of the managers where they will ask you numerous questions, some will be classic interview questions meanwhile others will seem out of the box but are looking for confidence and ability to answer abstract questions on the spot. After this interview you may meet with the manager and then go on to a meeting with the owner of the restaurant

    They did a complete interview at first, and then they did a 10 question scenario which you had to actually role play to the manager. This involved standing up and answering questions that were not even related to serving. The manager was very rude.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Jack Astor's.

    Interview

    Long. They ask a few questions & if they like you, you move on to the aptitude test which lets them know about your personality and how you think. Then you go for a one on one with the GM, this was my experience at the square one location. The one on Argentina didn't even give me the time of day after I completed the aptitude test , which is okay because the square one location is much busier anyways
