    Why say it simply when you can say it with complexity?

    Give them a typical order when the come in, do the interview, THEN ask them to repeat the order!

    Given the amount they need to remember, and the conditions they’ll need to deal with, it’s a pretty fair test.

    It’s NOT the “Carrying” that’s the usual problem, it’s keeping the orders straight, along with Who gets WHAT!

    “Do you have any previous experience?” would probably be a good one, Claire. And, of course, everyone’s favorite interview question: “Tell me about your shortcomings…”

    @Leo Autodidact

    You got it! That’s by far the hardest part!

    Now why aren’t they scooched on in a little closer to each other?

    That’s fine if it isn’t too busy. But they have to be able to work from memory a lot when they are handling a lot of people or there will be trouble. So the ol’ brain has to firing on all cylinders. And this takes focus or the ability to focus.

    Seems to me that wasn’t the same thing said twice.

    Occasionally you find one that doesn’t need to write them down and gets it correct every time.

    The BEST Waiters/Waitresses tend to be Actors/Actresses who have been disciplining their MEMORIES for YEARS. Memorization on short notice is essential to acting on TV or in Movies, these days (what with constant script changes/revisions, etc.)

    ANYBODY can do the Physical part. It’s not being “Rattle-able” and keeping a smile both on your face and in your voice, that makes the difference.
