    Hostess Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Vancouver, BC (Canada)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Keg Restaurants (Vancouver, BC (Canada)).

    Interview

    Applied online and was invited for an interview a few days later. Waited 45 mins for the first interviewer for a really short interview (basic questions about previous experience), was invited for a second interview the next day and the interview went smoothly, manager asked me about myself. Got invited to a third interview with another manager who asked pretty much the same questions as the other two. First and last manager didn’t seem very interested in what I had to offer, perhaps because of my lack of experience. Most of the questions were very generic and unrelated to how I would perform at this job. However they were still quite friendly and polite. Thought all three interviews had gone well, but did not receive an offer due to lack of experience.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Keg Restaurants (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in April 2008.

    Interview

    I had an interview with one manager and it was really informal. He went to get another manager and it was also very informal. They asked questions about previous work experience and how I would make a good fit for The Keg. I dressed casually, not like a slob, but definitely not dressed up either.

    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..

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    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.

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Keg Restaurants (Guelph, ON (Canada)) in April 2016.

    Easy -- mostly chatted with the owner and GM. I think they wanted to see what I'm like/what hobbies I have outside of work.
