    Hostess Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Keg Restaurants (Burnaby, BC (Canada)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    My first interview was pretty straight forward, asking me about myself and availablity. He seemed very interested in what I had to say. I left the interview confidently and positive. After days of no one contacting me I started to lose hope, until I got a call a week later for a second interview. This one didnt go so well, and I felt like he didnt enjoy listening to me answer his questions. I was pretty bummed out because I really wanted this job. Guess I lost hope too fast because the next day they called and offered me a job!! Oh and i also dressed very formal and in all black (kind of like what I see their employees wear) so i think that helped me look the part and the age. I also thought they only hired older students like 17+ but i guess not since im only 15.

    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..

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Keg Restaurants (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in April 2009.

    Interview

    I went to the Keg Mansion for the interview. I had first been greeted by the Kitchen Manager and he was interviewing me for a dishwasher position. He was very fun to talk with and friendly. After asking me many questions, he directed me to the Bar Manager and suggested that I was a better fit in the Front of the House staff due to my social skills and interest in meeting new people. After being referenced from another Manager, it was soothe sailing from then. The Bar Manager asked me similar questions and I answered them confidently. I was then offered the position of a Barback instead.
