    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Carlson Restaurants.

    Interview Details

    The poorly designed ATS should have been a warning this company is messed up. Applied online then waited. 6 weeks later I get a call, talk about my background and schedule a phone interview with the hiring manager. Even get a confirmation email that the manager will call me. He never calls. I get voicemail when I call the recruiter, but no response so I send an email. The next day I get an email back saying the recruiter is no longer with the company and the senior recruiter will update me within the next few days. Never hear back.

    A month later, I get a call from a new recruiter, go through background, etc and schedule a phone interview with the senior recruiter (same one that was supposed to get back to me). This interview gets postponed. Then I get an ATS form letter saying the interview has been cancelled.

    So, I end up setting aside time on 3 occasions for interviews that didn't happen, and do my interview prep twice. Total waste of my time, which tells me how little they value job candidates - which is a good sign of how they value employees - churn & burn.

    Sad, because I used to be a big fan of TGI Fridays. As soon as I burn through my last 3,000 Stripes points, I won't even eat there again.

    Bartender Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Peoria, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Peoria, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Carlson Restaurants in November 2008.

    Interview Details

    Easy. Talked to the manager, took a couple tests, got the job. Wear nice clothes, don't come in to apply during rush time, smile, and be polite, you'll get the job! Personality test. Don't answer anything stupid, or put a "?" for any answers. Point of the test is to make sure you can make decisions, so putting a "?'' for any answer results in a fail. Ask to talk to a manager when you put in your application.
