    Host/Hostess Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Willoughby, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Willoughby, OH
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Red Robin.

    Interview Details

    I brought my application to the location in person and got the opportunity to chat with one of the managers. He was impressed with me enough to have me full out some questionnaires and personality tests (which I found very odd) to assess my compatibility with their corporate culture. I scored well, when on to a full interview, and landed the job.

    • They asked me to rate, in order of personal preference, 25 different scenarios, i.e. "Nuclear war" and "Having a baby."   Answer Question

    Hostess Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Red Robin.

    Interview Details

    Arrived to my interview about 10 minutes early, was asked to just wait a couple minutes while the host grabbed the manager who would be interviewing me. When the manager came, she took me back to a booth and asked me simple questions; such as, "Tell me about yourself" and "What did you do in a situation where a customer was unhappy with the service?" Simple. After, we mingled a bit about the job itself, and the company and how easy you can move up. After, she left and grabbed another manager, who asked me more of the "scenario" questions. I could see that she ranked the questions from 1 to a 3; 1 being a weak answer, 3 being a good answer. After, she went and got the first manager who came with a third manager. They basically hired me on the spot.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Red Robin in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was contacted the next day. I set up an interview for two days later.

    The interview was extremely easy. She only asked me what made me choose Red Robin and what I knew about the company, but apart from that it was super casual. After a brief 7 or so minute interview, she offered me the position.

    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation. They don't really let servers negotiate. Starting here is $4.65, which I think is reasonable based on the amount of traffic this location sees.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Red Robin.

    Interview Details

    Met with four managers. I wasn't exactly sure who I would be reporting to. As the interview went on, I gathered I would be working with multiple departments. They hire outside companies for design work, but review documents within. Sometimes becomes a problem from design to implementation.

    Very long but worth it, you meet with all three managers and go over an array of paper work from the culture of the restaurant to day to day responsibilities and you will be told very quickly whether or not you got the job

    Sit-down interview with manager on duty. Very relaxed and personal. There was not a lot of pressure during the interview and I felt that I was just sitting down having a chat with someone on a 1 on 1 level. After the interview they got back to me about the position in a timely manner and I began my employment with them quickly.
