Here is a submission from one of my readers on his best experience in finding a job. Later this week, I will share his worst experience.
“My best experience involved in a hiring process was when I was hired to work at Friendly’s Restaurant. When I arrived there for the interview, the manager, Alice, greeted me personally with a smile and escorted me into the office. She made small talk with me, and then began the interview immediately.
I felt welcomed from the moment I entered the door, and she was also very up-front with me. She told me at the beginning of the interview that she was strict and ran a “tight ship”. She explained how she expects all her employees to be working as long as they are on the clock, and that she would accept nothing less.
Alice also explained to me that those who work hard and put in the effort to do the job would be rewarded with the ability to choose days off and be given raises when they have good quarterly or yearly observations.
I feel like that this was a good way to conduct an interview, and out of all of the interviews I’ve had, it was the best.” WK
