    Server Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ottawa, ON (Canada)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Keg Restaurants (Ottawa, ON (Canada)) in September 2018.

    Interview

    I applied online and sent in a had written application and was contacted by the Human Resources manager at the Ottawa - York St. Keg restaurant and was asked to come in for an interview. I went in and asked to speak with a manager, they were very friendly but seemed surprised when I came - it was like they didn't know they were hiring. They asked a lot of questions about my communications with the HR personal and it appeared they had not received any communication between HR and the GM. One of the managers came back out and immediately asked if I spoke french and followed with you need to be bilingual here - if you don't speak french you can't work here. I was very caught off guard as there was no indication in the application or communications with HR that indicated this was a bilingual position. Ottawa very much does have a double-standard when it comes to french and English. The manager asked me a question in french and I was only able to understand a small portion (not being bilingual) and because of that the manager concluded the 'interview' at that point and -for lack of better words - showed me the door. Overall, it was a negative interview process which was surprising as I had read many positive reviews online.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Montreal, QC (Canada)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Keg Restaurants (Montreal, QC (Canada)).

    Interview

    I came in for a walk in interview. The interview lasted less than 2 minutes. She started off by asking why I was applying at the keg. She then asked me to name five types of vodkas and five types of wine. When I was only able to answer 3/5 for both, she simply told me that I need to have an above average knowledge of both. I continued to explain that I would love to have the chance to learn, since all my past experience was very limited in terms of wine. I wish I would have been given the chance to show her my personality. I was recommended for the job by one of their managers who I had previously served. She told me that I would be perfect for the job and that I would have the opportunity to train and learn all about wine parings.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Keg Restaurants (Edmonton, AB (Canada)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Tedious, but quite easy. They started with a hiring fair with whatever manager you got paired with. They give callbacks to meet with the manager of your specific department, and if you're lucky you'll get a 3rd to meet with the GA.
