    I applied online and got an emai the very same day I applied to call and speak with a manager to set up an interview. So I did. 2 days later I went to my interview and everything was fine, the manager seemed to like me and decided to set me up for a second interview and I went for my 2nd interview 3 days later. That manager seemed to like me very well, the interview went really well! afterwards she mentioned i would get an email about the job. Its been 3 weeks and so far nothing. I called to see if they were still in the decision process but the manager seemed like she barley wanted to talk like she was rushed.

    Server Assistant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Red Lobster in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied at Red Lobster for the host/server assistant position and got an email saying they wanted to meet me. I met with the General Manager, he was very nice but he did not really ask me any questions. It didn't seem like he was ready because he was not informed of the interview till 30 minutes before.He just explained what the position entailed, and then I guess he liked me enough because he wanted to schedule an interview to meet the District Manager. As I was getting up to leave he said "oh, and why Red Lobster?". I think because he realized he hadn't asked me anything.
    The 2nd interview with the DM was a little more detailed. He asked me questions like...
    1.how I would treat a college student as opposed to someone elderly.
    2. What would I do in a situation where a bunch of people were waiting longer than what I said the wait time was going to be and people were getting a little upset/irritated
    3.Why should we hire you to be a team member instead of any other of the candidates

    After we got past the availability questions and everything, he told me he'd let me know by the next day because he had some other interviews yet and he wanted to think about it. I didn't get a call the next day but I got one about 3 days later for a Host position instead of the Server Assistant.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Red Lobster in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    I filled out an application online on a monday night and within a day received an email telling me to call management that mon-thurs between 2-4. I called on wednesday and we set up an interview for the following monday.

    My interview on Monday was with the front house manager and she was very friendly-i have next to no restaurant experience so she changed questions around so i could relate to them. we're both ex-military so i think thats how i got in..she asked your standard questions "why red lobster, have you ever had an exceptional dining experience-tell me about it, what will make you a good member of our team, tell me about a time you had a conflict at work and how you helped resolve it.' if you're going into an interview they really like that you emphasize customer service and when discussing resolving a conflict with a customer emphasize how important it is that you never blame anyone else, even if it isnt your fault, take the blame. I was only there for about 25 min, i came early and they didnt keep me waiting which was nice. She scheduled me for my second interview on friday with the DM.

    The DM was also very friendly and when he noted that i was nervous he reassured me that if you get a second interview you're pretty much in. he only asked one question as his question list was misplaced. he asked why red lobster and then we went on to discuss other things. He decided to put me through my orientation right there so it was also my first day. Very friendly people, make sure to keep smiling and they really care about employing good-attitudes, good work ethic and friendly people. Emphasize how youd never say "oh thats not my job" and how you'll always find something to do-cause in a restaurant something always needs to get done!

    Also, I applied for server's assistant and since i have some restaurant experience the DM told me I could move up in as little as two weeks. So don't let this position stray you-you will move up :-)
