    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Red Robin in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    I walked in and filled out an application during their off-hours and was immediately interviewed by the kitchen manager, a well-dressed, polite young guy. He said I "seem like a good guy" and he would "put in a good word" with the general manager. About 2 days later I got a call asking to come back for an interview with the general manager. The general manager was kind of intimidating - he was less personable than the kitchen manager but seemed to be more professional. I was so scared I was going to blow it when he asked me "So, why should I hire you?" and I fumbled my words quite a bit, but he ended up offering me the job. I went through orientation just 3 days later and was working in the kitchen the day after orientation.

    Interview Questions
    • What would you do if you observed another cook failing to follow a proper procedure?   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    I didn't have to negotiate much at all. The location I applied for was hurting for cooks. In fact, I had written down on my application that I wanted at least $8.00/hr, and they started me at $9.00/hr. Don't be afraid to ask for more money.
