    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

    Application

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

    Interview

    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

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Jack Astor's.

    Interview

    I went into the restaurant and filled out a handful of papers basically rewriting out my resume. They ask for references and they certainly call them. You then have to come in again and fill out a comprehensive booklet asking a variety of math questions, matching pattern questions, and multiple choice questions. They then scan your answers and you must receive over a certain percentage. The next step is to come in and do a "choose your own journey" type interview where they give you options and you choose the statement and they ask you the question association with the statement you chose. This interview involved a lot of role play. Takes approximately 45 minutes. The third interview is with the gm. The GM has to approve all employees hired to the restaurant.
