    It was fantastic, the manager asked pertinent questions and made me feel comfortable!! He was very respectful. I do not feel that he was rude, overbearing or that he attempted to trick me in anyway. His name was John and I did enjoy working with him.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Red Lobster (San Jose, CA) in July 2009.

    Interview

    I went through two interviews. One with a manager, and the second with the general manager. The questions were mostly situational. Some questions I remember were: personal experiences from when I dined at restaurants (positive/ negative), how would I handle a situation if I had multiple things to do at once.

    Interview Questions

    • I don't really remember, but I struggled only because I had no prior restaurant experience.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Red Lobster (Brampton, ON (Canada)) in October 2012.

    Interview

    2 interviews, 1st with a manager (pretty basic questions), then the 2nd interview was with a general manager (also pretty basic questions). I applied online and got contacted via email within a week or two. I was asked to call the number listed in the email, then got my 1st interview scheduled for the next day. After that interview, I was told to watch my phone for a call regarding my second interview with a general manager (4-5 days after first interview). I also want to add that I had NO bartender or server experience, the closest experience I had was as a busser at a breakfast restaurant

    Interview Questions

    • Either there weren't any difficult or out-of-ordinary questions, or I just don't quite remember, but from what I DO remember, the questions were very basic and what you would expect from an interview   Answer Question
