    FOH Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at wagamama (Boston, MA (US)).

    Interview

    Go to restaurant and get a paper copy of the application. Return it between three and five and ask for a manager. You probably won't get one but your best chance is between these hours. They will call you if interested, don't wait longer than a few days, they know whether or not they are calling you within a few minutes. If you want to call back to check on the status of your application, once again, do it between 3 and 5.
    The interview is very standard, they ask classic interview questions and explain how Wagamama works.
    Nothing strange at all about the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Why did you leave your last job?
      And
      Name two weaknesses?

      But like I said, they really come up with a lot of these on the spot so there is no guarantee they will ask the same stuff of you.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. Although there is an awesome point system where you spend points on food. It is very generous. Every time you work you get at least one meal, some shifts two. The trade off is you eat it during a twenty minute paid break but you don't get any thirty minute unpaid breaks.
    (easy decision)

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at wagamama.

    Interview

    Applied online, was contacted within two weeks for an interview by phone, arranged for 3 days after the call and was sent a confirmation email of the date/time/name of interviewer/things to bring.
    Interview lasted only around 15-20 minutes. She had a copy of my CV in front of her and was mostly asking about past experience and how it applied to the Wagamama job. Explained a lot about how the company works. Was offered a work trial so she could see how I interacted with customers (5pm-9pm). Was offered the job straight after and accepted.
