    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at T.G.I. Friday's (Cardiff, Wales (UK)) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Had a brief five minute interview, followed by an hour and a half OJE - On the Job Experience - shadowing the staff, and helping run food and get drinks. Concluded with a final ten minute interview about OJE. Was a great chance to show skills, rather than trying to explain how capable I can be! I had no restaurant experience, which has been a real disadvantage before. Very friendly staff.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at T.G.I. Friday's.

    Interview

    I interviewed with the DO and the GM at their training store. They mostly just asked me about my previous experience and work ethic. Honestly, the DO was very distracted by the conducting the interview in the store. They were prepping for lunch and he was very busy watching what they were doing. He seemed more interested in them than in me. It boiled down to a get-to-know-you chat.
