Our interview questions are created by writers, almost all of which, have a long history of recruiting and interviewing candidates. They do not necessarily have experience interviewing or working with companies, careers, or schools, in which they may write for on MockQuestions.com. We do, however, strive to match their background and expertise with the appropriate question sets found on our website.
Our careers, companies, industries, and schools may have duplicate interview questions and answers found elsewhere on our website. Specifically, our companies and our graduate school interviews. For these two, we use the industry in which we believe the company most well-represents and the graduate programs, as the basis for the interview questions and answers that generate for each company or school.
The intent of MockQuestions.com is for our users to build confidence for their job interview, by using our thousands of interview questions and answers as they practice and prepare for their interview. We believe, most of our visitors can become more likely to succeed in their job interview with hard-work and practice. We believe, the key to success is for our users to rehearse with our interview questions while using our answer examples as an idea generator for their own interview answers. We strongly want to discourage users from memorizing our answer examples. That is not the purpose of our website.
A barback is a bartender's assistant. Known as runners in Europe, barbacks do all of the behind-the-scenes work that a busy bartender does not have time to attend to. Two of the main jobs you will be responsible for as a barback include re-stocking the ice and making sure that the bartender has a steady supply of clean glasses for all types of drinks. Other responsibilities include maintaining stocks, clearing empty glasses, changing kegs and restocking mixers and cleaning the premises.
There are no minimum educational requirements but you must be above 18 years of age. Some bars require barbacks to be minimum 21 years old since that is the legal drinking age in the US. You must be prepared to work efficiently and quickly in this job. Weekends in particular can be exceptionally busy and the bartender will be relying on you to keep things moving along smoothly so all of the patrons are happy. You must be a people's person to work as a barback as you will be required to interact with customers. Excellent communication, interpersonal and customer service skills are essential requirements.
Get some experience in a smaller pub before seeking a barback job in a larger establishment. The reputation of leading pubs hinges on their staff and prospective employers will be extremely picky when hiring a barback.
If you have experience working as a barback and you know the basics job requirements, your interview will be fun. In addition to asking you why you want to work as a barback, your interviewer will also ask you questions to test your knowledge about different types of alcohol and how they are served. They will also give you a mock situation to gauge how you would react to irate or drunk customers.
