    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at T.G.I. Friday's in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    When I came in for dinner one evening I asked the server if they were hiring and I was given an application and the name of the manager to contact about hiring. I mad an appointment over the phone to turn in my application and have an interview the same day. I was asked a series of "what would you do if.." questions and answered them to the best of my ability with enthusiasm. I think that is what this manager liked best.

    Waiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Richmond, VA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Richmond, VA
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at T.G.I. Friday's in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    I walked in to ask if the location was hiring, and after confirmation I applied online. I was called back the same day, and soon after I went in for an interview. The first interview went well, and everyone I had talked to up to that point was very accomodating and friendly. I passed that one, and was set up for a second interview with the GM. He, on the other hand, was not much of a people person- I felt very uncomfortable talking with him, as he asked of me several questions I found difficult to answer (e.g. Discuss an instance in which you were involved in a conflict with a fellow employee and how you resolved it.)

    If you want to give TGIF a shot, then I'd say go for it! When you are being interviewed, smile a lot and keep an upbeat attitude- your actions are more reflective of you than your words.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at T.G.I. Friday's in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    pretty straightforward, walk in request application. Only come in to ask during non-busy hours! Mon-Thursday only! be polite while waiting the team members are not afraid to tell the manager not to hire someone because you were rude etc... Fill the application out in house so if the manager has free time you could potentially do an interview then.

    if they are interested they will call you back, don't be afraid to call back the next day after filling out application.

    interview will consist of a few questions but ultimately a test is taken to know if you should or shouldn't be hired. On the test make sure to answer all on the side of working hard, going above and beyond what you are asked to, never stops to take a break sort of answers.

    if you pass the test you will then have an interview with the GM. by then you have pretty much passed.

What they are both looking for is a great personality and excellent customer service skills are crucial. Now, applications have to be submitted online ONLY and a resume can be uploaded. After that, call the store and ask to speak with the general manager.
