Application questions below. Research online for clues. Be honest. Be consistent. Think about reality, what makes sense. To recognize reality, try to get out of your own reality and consider what makes logical sense. This test is modeled after MMPI used by hospitals and law enforcement agencies to assess mental health. Its purpose is to figure out who is batshit crazy. Even if you score batshit crazy — nearly all of you will, some because of your lack of experience, others because of your social background — you may still get hired because batshit crazy is, well, normal, common. Our job is to help you grow out of batshit crazy stage of life, to help you develop a stable identity and to recognize reality about yourself and others.
Check yelp to learn more about Alive Juice Bar. (If you apply to restaurants without reading their Yelp reviews, then you don’t deserve to use toilet paper ever again). If you have a history of working at establishments with poor yelp reviews, you’ll be asked about bad habits you’ve picked up. Not saying we’re awesome and set the standard. Our faults are many, and we find them intolerable. We just want to keep improving rather than devolve into something awful.
