    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Red Lobster (Tucson, AZ).

    Interview

    Applied online, received email a few days later to call the store to set up an interview. First interview was fairly easy, scripted questions that they score you on. Remember to smile and be upbeat, show some personality, and be confident with your answers. Dress nicely, no jeans or tennis shoes. The entire first interview took about 15 minutes, no very difficult questions. Passed first interview, the manager I interviewed called me later that afternoon to schedule interview with the general manager. That interview was more of the same type of questions, just more detailed. At the end of it, he said he really liked my answers and my attitude and offered me the job on the spot. I started the following week.
