Interview Practice | Chef


Hi, I’m James. I’m a restaurant owner and I’m going to take you through some
interview questions for chefs. I’ll ask you some common interview questions and I recommend you pause the video after each one
to think about how you’d answer it. Say your answers out loud to practice
what would it be like with a real interview. You can even record yourself on your phone or webcam and then watch it back to see where
you think you could improve. I’ll finish up giving you some tips what I’d expect
to hear from you in a successful interview. Let’s get started. Where did you do your apprenticeship? Why did you leave your last job? What do you consider your strengths
to be in the kitchen? Why do you want to work here? What are your long-term career goals? Do you consider yourself a team player? Tell me about a difficult situation you experienced
in the kitchen and how you handled it? When are you happiest at work? How do you handle the pressure
during a busy service? What have you done to improve your skills
in the kitchen in the past year? Do you have any questions for me? So the way you’d stand out positively in an interview is by being well presented, well dressed, coming prepared with all the documents
that might be relevant to the position. I think it’s very important you do some
research on the organisation that you’re looking to work at before you turn up to the interview. You’ll be asked a lot of questions by someone like myself about how you might be able to improve
some of their systems and things like that and if you don’t know about the organisation, then you’re not going to be able to
answer these in the correct way. When given the opportunity to ask questions
it’s good practice to do so. It shows confidence, initiative and interest in
the position you’re trying to get. During the interview process, it’s quite likely
you’re going to be asked to give examples of certain scenarios, when things
have happened in previous jobs. So just make sure you can prepare
with a few of those so that you don’t have to be thinking
too long about your answers.
