    I applied in-person. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at T.G.I. Friday's (New York, NY) in August 2013.

    The interview process was simple and very friendly. The store manager is a very approachable woman and very honest and no nonsense which is very appreciated. I was hired right on the spot and had to visit the securities office a few days later to complete the paperwork and security access forms.

    There was none.

    Interview

    Simple enough, I moved up the ranks over the years, never had a real interview, just a series of chats. A much more natural manner of interview.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at T.G.I. Friday's (Seekonk, MA) in May 2013.

    Interview

    I spoke with the bar manager over the phone following completion of the online application, then had a face to face interview with the general manager. The general manager asked about my two existing jobs which I told her I planned to keep until I was sure the new job would work. She explained that the training process was very involved and would demand a lot of time. This convinced me to quit my lower paying job.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at T.G.I. Friday's in May 2013.

    Interview

    Hiring process was kind of ridiculous. There were 3 interviews: One with the FOH manager, one with the general manager, and one with the owner. They were all fairly easy, didn't ask any unexpected questions. I pretty much knew I got the job after the second interview but I had to talk with the owner. The last two interviews ended up being with me and another girl interviewing at once. We both got the job.
