    Food Server Interview

    Interview Details

    I came in one day to apply for a busser position and I dressed well and spoke to the manager for a few minutes and they asked if I would be interested in a server position. I told them that I had not experience, and they let me know that they prefer that their employees have no prior experience so they can teach them their way of doing things. There was a quick interview with one other manager, and the GM. I had to fill out a paper ranking a few things by most important - least important.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Red Robin.

    Interview Details

    The process was fairly easy. It was 3 interviews but my guess is if you make it to the 3rd one you're already in. They asked why you wish to work there and what you can bring to the table. I didn't think 3 interviews was necessary so don't let that discourage you.

    Server/Busser/Hostess Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Plainfield, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Red Robin in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. A day later I received a call from Red Robin to schedule an interview. The interview was scheduled for that Friday. When I arrived the hostess sat me at a table (it was a little after 2) and I waited for probably about 15 minutes for the interviewer to come out. When she came out she had us move to a booth. She had a small stack of papers with her. Apparently the papers were my application and interview questions. She also had a blank piece of paper that she said was for her to take notes on and that the notes wouldn't necessarily be good or bad. At the end of the interview she hadn't written anything down. She literally read the interview questions off of the paper.

    Hostess Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Red Robin.

    Interview Details

    I had two interviews with two different managers. The first interview was great, she was prepared, and I felt it went very well. The interview with the second person was not as good. He didn't have the notes from my previous interview, didn't have my information with him, and was not prepared at all. It was very awkward. It seemed more like he was lecturing me than interviewing me. At the end of this interview he said I would get a call the next Monday or Thursday. Well a week after he said he call I decided to call to see if a decision was made and I was told he would call back (he never did). A week after that I got a call from a different manager at the same location to set up an interview. It seems that my information was never updated to show that I was interviewed and in those three weeks a decision was still not made. I'm still interested in the job, but it is ridiculous how unorganized the management at this location is. Basically I'm still waiting on the outcome and if I didn't need a job so bad I would be looking elsewhere.
