Host Interview

Host
Manassas, VA

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Red Robin in June 2012.

Interview Details – I applied online and got called in for an in-person interview that same week. I was interviewed by three separate managers, the first (what I later found out to be a "mid" manager) and second I felt were mainly to keep me occupied until the third and main interviewer, the General Manager. They were all pretty friendly. After speaking with each for a few minutes about my application, why I was applying, where I was in my life (e.g. high school grad, where I was going after high school, what I wanted to do) and what I wanted to get out of the job, I was offered a starting job as a host with an hourly pay of $7.75 (a rate that varies amongst the hospos, I've discovered).

Interview Question – Where do you see yourself going with this job?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was completely inexperienced - this was my first job in the working world, so I took what they offered me without complaint, a rate a few quarters higher than minimum wage.

Nicholasville, KY

Interview Details – Have to meet with 3-4 different managers to go through the interview process. They make you meet with all the managers, and not just the GM.

Hostess Interview

Hostess
Cypress, CA

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Red Robin in May 2012.

Interview Details – so it was a two part interview. first you started off the interview with the assistant manager then the general manager they are both really nive people. the interview is formaland takes place right in the store. please dress in vusiness casual attire, give real answers not just what you think they want o hear. they really do value education at the company so if you let them know you are in school then that would only be a plus on your part.

Interview Question – How well do you work in a fast paced environment?   Answer Question

Kitchen Manager Interview

Kitchen Manager
South Plainfield, NJ

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Red Robin in February 2012.

Interview Details – I was referred to this position by my boss and applied online. The next morning I received a call from a recruiter asking to set up a phone interview. After we went through the phone interview, she emailed me some paperwork and the link for an online personality test. The personality test was a little nerve-wracking because many of the questions were difficult to answer on a yes or no basis. After I faxed back the paperwork and finished the test, I received another phone call from the recruiter asking to set up an in person interview. The only reason it took three weeks for all this to happen is because all the general managers were away at a conference and I had to wait until they returned in order to finish the interview process.

Interview Question – They asked broad questions and were looking for a specific answer.   Answer Question
