    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Red Robin.

    Interview Details

    I had an interview with Vanessa & all she really asked me was how to take care of her daughters hair. Her daughter is biracial & so am I.. Then she told me that since I'm eye candy they would hire me. Had a 2nd interview with Dave and it was just basic questions. Where did you work before why did you quit then he asked me what do you think is better, fora restaurant to have good food, good service or both. Of course I said both. I had applied 2 weeks earlier, checked on the status 3 days after I applied & then like a week & a half later they called me & had an interview the next day. Got hired the same day. It's really easy just smile a lot & be friendly.

    Host/Hostess Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Red Robin.

    Interview Details

    Called in and asked if they were hiring for host position. They told me to come in and fill out an application while I was there (but I took it home anyway). The application was super easy to fill out, it's only one page. I brought the application back during lunch hours and they manager had time to interview me there on the spot at one of the dinning tables. Be careful of what shoes you wear to the interview, I had on some nice heels and almost fell because the floors were so oily/slippery for some reason. Never had restaurant-specific experience and was hired on the spot (don't think they even called references).

    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.
