In looking for work i have never seen anything like this. I'm not going to give away the name of the company, cause of legalities...but i had to share the job application questions with you because i thought they were just way the heck out there. the questions are as follows: 1: Why do you want to work in this strange restaurant? 2: Explain the most difficult physical labor you've ever done, regardless of weather you would ever want to do it again. 3. How long cand you work standing up without a break? 4. What and when was the last music concert you attended? 5. Name five music groups that you enjoy and own copies of their music. (be honest) 6. If you could be anywhere, doing anything you desire, what would you be doing today? 7. How much money do you expect to earn here in the next 3 month? (five total not hourly rate) 8. Do most people who like you think you are weird? Why or why not? 9. Are you a prompt person? 10. What activities have you done today? (What did you do to keep yourself busy?) 11. Tell us one thing that someone criticized you for today 12. Tell us one thing that you criticized someone else for today. 13. Do you have a good short term memory? 14. Do you think you would want to be a manager here? and then they ask for your typical statistics that a normal application would ask you. now tell me this...what do you think of this application. is this a place you would want to work...and what do you think of a place like this in general? personally i think that a place like this is a place i would not want to work at. it just doesn't smack of the professionalism that i expect from an employer. let me know.

I think it sounds like a fun restaurant. If you have worked in restaurants before, you know that is important. It is very hard work so the more fun the better. Regarding the professionalism, I see what you mean. But most restaurants attract younger employees. Sounds like they want high energy people. If this isn't something for you then by all means skip this place and go to the next. There are plenty of other places that will handle things better.

Of course you have an advantage knowing what the establishment is, but looking at it blind, I would think it might be a fun place to work! Looks to me like they want fun loving, yet hard working people, similar in personalities. I also think the application would most likely turn off people who might not fit in with the rest of the employees, which could be a good thing. I'm not sure if it would be for me, but it does look like it would be fun.
