    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at T.G.I. Friday's (Denver, CO) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Upon receiving my resume I was invited to take an online assessment. I did not hear back so I followed up and was finally scheduled for a phone interview with HR - 11 days later. I was informed that I would be moving forward in the process with the district manager, but I did not hear back. I once again followed up and was finally scheduled to meet with a GM instead - this occurred 21 days after last contact. I was informed by the GM that I would be moving forward with the District Manager as originally intended. Once again there was no follow up - I tried contacting HR twice over the next 11 days until finally receiving a stock email letting me know they were moving in another direction. The entire process from beginning to end took 43 days.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions were fairly standard but interviews were very long - At least 90 minutes each and the GM was 20 minutes late to the second.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at T.G.I. Friday's (Westminster, CA) in October 2013.

    Interview

    Started off online and had to fill out personality test. Was then called with in a few days and had an interview with the manager followed up by another interview with the general manager about three days later. Fairly simple and basic questions asked about the industry and certain situations to face. Nothing that was a surprise.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at T.G.I. Friday's (Onalaska, WI) in October 2013.

    Interview

    1-2 interviews. They jump right in for aggressive questions. My best advice, let your personality shine, they want fun people who will show guests a good time and help create a solid customer base.

    Server Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Interview

    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.
