Jordan's Answer #1
"I enjoy cooking in my free time, so I've been volunteering a couple times a week at a local homeless shelter. I help prepare meals, come up with new, simple recipes, and serve food to our guests. I really enjoy being able to meet our guests and hear their stories."
Jordan's Answer #2
"I currently volunteer every Saturday at the local animal shelter. I help to organize adoption applications and also screen the applicants. It feels great to help out, and it melts my heart when we make a perfect pet-parent match."

What questions do you have for me?
It's always a great idea to have questions ready for the interviewer. Review the company website and other online resources to ensure the queries you have are not mundane, or redundant. The last thing an interviewer wants to hear is a list of items you could have found the answers for from merely watching a video on their company site!

Here are some sample questions:

- When would you like to have this position filled?
- How long has this role been vacant?
- Is this a replacement search or a newly created role?
- What is your favorite part about working here?
- What is the company's primary goal for this position in the next 12 months?
- Is there anything from my background and experience that I can clarify for you?
- What do you see as the most significant change in this industry over the past three years?
- Is there any reason why you would not hire me?

Jordan's Answer #1
"Thank you for asking - I do have a few questions. What does your training schedule look like, should I be the successful candidate? Also, when are you hoping to make a decision?"
Jordan's Answer #2
"I would like to ask if there is anything in my background on which you need clarification? Also, after discussing everything today, is there any particular reason why I would not be the best fit for this shift manager role?"
3.
Tell me about your experience with Point of Sale systems.
Even if you haven't yet worked in the restaurant industry, it's important that the interviewer can see that you are able to master our POS systems, methods, and procedures here at Bahama Breeze -- that's what our guiding principle of Excellence is all about. Do you have any experience with POS systems? Do you feel confident that you can master our POS system here?

Jordan's Answer #1
"I have approximately eight months' experience with Square POS. I picked up the system very quickly and believe that I could learn your system quickly."
Jordan's Answer #2
"The bulk of my POS experience is with Lightspeed Restaurant systems and TouchBistro. I can learn how to use any system that you require."
4.
Do you have reliable transportation?
Even if you're not expected to drive for the job, you will need to have some form of reliable transportation. If you take the bus or ride a bike, that works too! Merely share that you have the means to get to work consistently and on time.

Jordan's Answer #1
"I have reliable transportation. I have a well-maintained vehicle, and I am comfortable with the amount of travel required to get to your office every day."
Jordan's Answer #2
"I take public transit; however, I find it to be very reliable. I was late to work only once last year, and that was due to a snowstorm which stalled all of our employee's commute - including those with personal vehicles. Rest assured, I am reliable and will always come to work on time."

Bahama Breeze likes to hire individuals who want to grow with us. Where do you see yourself in 2-5 years?
Every day, we want to extend a bit of island attitude to our work environment. That means a sunny smile, appreciation for a job well done, and a helping hand you can always count on. We're invested in our team members and are always excited to help each employee take ownership of their careers. What are your personal career goals for the next several years? How can this position at Bahama Breeze help you achieve your goals?

Jordan's Answer #1
"I've been in the restaurant industry for almost a year, and I really love it. I can definitely see myself building a career in food services, so I'm hoping to stay with the next company I work for for the long haul. In a few years, I would like to be in a management position, and I hope that I can work toward that goal during my time with Bahama Breeze."
Jordan's Answer #2
"You can see in my resume that I have strong loyalty and tenure. My career plans include growing with Bahama Breeze in a management based role as I prove my skills. I would be happy to find a long-term fit here."
