    Hostess/Server Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Keg Restaurants in November 2017.

    Interview

    Very brief interview, approximately 5-7 minutes. The interviewer didn't seem to be interested to get to know me. He didnt even ask me to tell about myself, I had no chance to introduce myself properly since a manager started an interview from "what was your previous job like" question. I was surprised, is it supposed to be like that? Ok. I gave a full answer to that question and mentioned the reason i left that job, but then the interviewer asked the next question like "WHY DID YOU LEAVE THAT PLACE"? At the moment I realized he didnt even listen to me :( Few questions about availability. No eye contact from manager. After couple of minutes the interviewer tried to get rid of me by asking me if I have any questions. At no time i was given an opportunity to reveal my personality. How can you guys understand if a person is suitable for the position or not with this kind of approach? I was prepared well and looked professional by the way. Very disappointed..

    Server Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Keg Restaurants.

    Interview

    Saw an add for the Vaughan location on their website but unfortunately when I went in the GM who first interviewed me said they already hired for the position and were looking for maybe bussers, I said sure to the idea of it to work my way up so he moved me on to the next interview with an assistant Manager who then interviewed me and gave me their business card to hear back from them by weeks end. Didn't hear back from them. Seems like they go for a certain heteronormative female type who are under 25 with average - above average looks.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Keg Restaurants (North York, ON (Canada)) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I went to an interview at Novotel Hotel for the new Elmwood Location and the interview process was very comfortable. I loved how easy going all the managers were and the staff were also very friendly. They didn't really ask too many questions but it was more of a conversation.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Keg Restaurants (Vancouver, BC (Canada)) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online, and went to their open interview times (3-5). I forgot to bring my application form so I had to fill one out there again, but they were very chill about it. I had a casual chat with the manager who was super friendly and then immediately after the general manager came to interview me. They both said they loved me and thought I was a great fit. Left the restaurant feeling great! Several days later I got offered the job.

    Bar Server Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Keg Restaurants.

    Interview

    There were 3 interviews. The first was a walk-in interview with one of the managers. The second was specifically with the bar manager, and the third was with the general manager of the location. It was very laid back, more about personality rather than experience. The keg has very extensive training so sometimes having previous experience isn't necessary. Very laid back, and more of a conversation

    Server/Busser Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Ottawa, ON (Canada)
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Keg Restaurants (Ottawa, ON (Canada)).

    Interview

    Applied online for a serving position and was invited (by e-mail) to stop by before opening hours for an interview.

    Met the hiring manger who asked me more typical interview questions and was told that they weren't hiring servers but there were some busing positions available if I was interested (thought this was a bit misleading but I was open to moving up the ladder and so continued on with the interview). Met the GM right after the first interview. Was very friendly and went really well. Didn't really ask any common interview questions, just basic "What do you do in your spare time?" etc.

    Left the restaurant feeling really good and got an offer the next morning.

    Server/Hostess Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Keg Restaurants (Ottawa, ON (Canada)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I went to the Keg one afternoon when they were closed with my job application form and was greeted by the service manager who was very friendly and had a nice manner. We sat down, she looked through my application and commented a few things about my skills and work experience. Because the general manager was not in at the moment she gave me her business card telling me to give them a call at the end of the week. The whole process took about 5-10 minutes and it was very pleasant. At the end of the week I gave them a call and scheduled for an interview with the hiring manager and general manager. They asked me the basic questions that you always get on an interview, and some more personal ones.
