    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Bonefish Grill (Murfreesboro, TN).

    Interview

    You will most likely interview with two managers ( assistant manager and general manager); I've heard some people have had theirs on separate days, I had mine one right after another in the same seating. They read from a script and took notes. They print your application that you completed online and verify everything is correct, and might ask you specific questions from there... school, major, work history, ect...

    Interview

    Apply between 1-3 PM; applications don't leave the store, so be ready to stick around awhile. If they are hiring, and if you have the experience/qualifications, they may further interview you on the spot. Dress up some - it's the service industry, but set yourself apart for goodness sake.

    Interview Questions

    • Typical service-industry related stuff - how to handle different situations. If you're experienced, these are a breeze. If not, find a friend who's in the industry and ask about best practices. You don't want to look like a dummy.   Answer Question
