Application Details

The process took a dayinterviewed at T.G.I. Friday's in November 2009.

Interview Details

asked to fill out an application. Was told to print one off and bring back. Went the next day and asked to speak with a manger [from experience, that almost the only sure way to get hired]. Took a standard personality test. Asked a few questions and gave me a date and time to return for orientation. Don't answer the personality test truthfully. There is a standard grade for it and really means nothing to you getting the job. Always seem upbeat for FOH and look somewhat nice [girls, be dolled up a little bit but don't overdo it. Show strengths, but don't inforce your femine side and seem cocky. Keep in mind, all of our managers are guys so make sure you feel them up accordingly. Reading people is very important to them, especially initially. Dudes, just get the conversation rolling so they see that you're friendly and approachable.]

Negotiation Details
I was offered $9 to start with periodic raises, depending on your willingness to stay late, learn stations, and show good work ethic. Complaining about the positions and how they're ran will probably stall your raise. Remember, it always takes less effort to make you vulnerable enough to quit than it is to fire you, although they will fire you if you really show laziness. Rule of thumb, you'll get more respect if you know how to handle your biz and make them do as little hands on as possible.
