    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at T.G.I. Friday's in July 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online through a fairly easy application process. I got a call a week later on a Saturday asking if I was still interested in a job and if I could come in for an interview the following monday. I interviewed with one of the managers and she just gave me the overview of the job (how the pay worked and the responsibility of the job) and also asked some questions about my availability and experience. I told her this would be my 1st job and she didn't really care that I didn't have experience. She called me back a few days later and asked if I could come in thursday for another interview with a different manager who asked more personal get to know you/work related questions. He said he'd call me back Friday if I got the job and sure enough I got a call that Friday.

    Negotiation

    They were pretty understanding of my schedule with school and extra curricular activities and said I would probably get most of my hours on the weekend, but I guess we will have to see what they do for me when I start getting scheduled

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at T.G.I. Friday's (Saratoga Springs, NY) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Three different interviews. The first was with the Front of House manager. She wanted to know about me and my experience, how I would deal with guests and coworkers. The second interview was with the General Manager. He asked questions related to the job (how to interact with guests, seat them, say farewell) because there is a very specific checklist hosts and servers must follow. Third interview was a phone interview with the District Manager. Just to get to know you and make sure that you can be professional and friendly on the phone.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at T.G.I. Friday's.

    Interview

    I initially applied online and the application wasn't that bad. It took them about 2 weeks to get back to me. My interview was around 3pm and last around 30 minutes. Once I got there, everyone was nice and they hiring manager sounded interested! Then... NOTHING. I called to follow up and they hung up on me. I probably won't be filling out another application any time soon.
