- Application Details
I applied online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Carlson Restaurants.Interview Details
The poorly designed ATS should have been a warning this company is messed up. Applied online then waited. 6 weeks later I get a call, talk about my background and schedule a phone interview with the hiring manager. Even get a confirmation email that the manager will call me. He never calls. I get voicemail when I call the recruiter, but no response so I send an email. The next day I get an email back saying the recruiter is no longer with the company and the senior recruiter will update me within the next few days. Never hear back.
A month later, I get a call from a new recruiter, go through background, etc and schedule a phone interview with the senior recruiter (same one that was supposed to get back to me). This interview gets postponed. Then I get an ATS form letter saying the interview has been cancelled.
So, I end up setting aside time on 3 occasions for interviews that didn't happen, and do my interview prep twice. Total waste of my time, which tells me how little they value job candidates - which is a good sign of how they value employees - churn & burn.
Sad, because I used to be a big fan of TGI Fridays. As soon as I burn through my last 3,000 Stripes points, I won't even eat there again.Interview Questions
