I just did an epic fail of an interview. Main issue? didn't look at at the restaurants menu and read prices. I was interviewing for a place that touted it was going to do family comfort food, brilliant, right up my alley. Showed up in my uniform, brought my knife bag, looked pressed and clean shaved, KM was impressed ad said so...now comes the bad part.
When asked why I wasn't currently working I said "Well, I did fine dining in the past and don't want to just work in any schlock boil-in-a-bag gravy house."
KM looks at GM and kind of clears her throat.. and I start to feel the toe of my size sixteen shoe entering my mouth.
I then say "ah..you don't make your own gravy do you?"
"Biscuits?" trying to talk around the ball of my foot
"Umm...you guys don't use Stouffers easy bake mac and cheese too do you?" figuring at this point I am already in it to the waist.
"we get everything premade from Sysco that we need."
I won't get into the rest of the conversation but I doubt I will be hearing from them. Had i just read the menu and prices , which I did when I got home...I probably would have realized to say anything else.
ah, well... i wouldn't be happy opening tins and making "food" that way so I guess it's just as well.
