    Negotiation is possible. They will most likely tell you they will start you out at 8. If you have any previous cooking experience decline and shoot for 9. Or if they tell you 9 based on your moderate to high level of experience, decline and shoot for 10 ect.

    Server Interview

    Interview Details

    Applied for the position online and received a call 3 days later to come in for an interview. First I had to take a written personality test and after I passed I met with the server manager. After several easy questions consisting of my prior work history and hobbies, I then met with the host manager for then same questions. Then after about 30 minutes of waiting I met with the general manager who only asked me questions about my background and finally met with the bar manager who asked me situational questions such as "what would you do if a guest claimed they ordered something else and received the wrong entree?" He then hired me right on the spot. Now this particular Fridays was corporate owned which is why I'm guessing I had to meet with so many managers. Most are franchised owned and most likely more layed back.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 days - interviewed at T.G.I. Friday's in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and I was called to schedule an interview the same day. I had two interviews one with the Host Manager and one with the General Manager. The first interview took hours because I had to wait a very long time while he interviewed someone else and then I had to fill out a 100 question personality test before I actually spoke with the manager and answered questions.
