    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at J. Alexander's (Birmingham, AL) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Interviewed with 2 coaches, one being the GM, both were friendly and engaging. They asked typical questions about previous experience and also why I was interested in J. Alexander's/Redlands Grill. I probably had more questions for them.

    Interview

    Initial interview with assistant manager, received a call on the way home to come back for another interview with the Head Manager, got the job on the spot. Their questions were straight forward. I originally was hired as a hostess and food runner, but was promoted to server within 2 months. The training process is extensive with a lot of menu tests.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at J. Alexander's (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    Came in with an application, left with a job. The general manager was impressed with my skills and he asked some great questions. I was able to showcase my talents from previous positions and give him affirmation that I was skilled and experienced. Dress nicely and make a good impression with a positive attitude. Even if I had less experience, I think I would have still gotten the job.

    Interview

    Pretty short the manager sat me down and we spoke for a little I was pretty much hired on the spot. He told us about their ethics and standards and what he expected out of me as a server. He asked about my prior work experience and asked me about how could I apply that to being a server there.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at J. Alexander's.

    Interview

    It was very casual and laid back. The manager asked many basic or 'typical' interview questions. I never was put in an uncomfortable spot. I didn't have much job experience prior, but it seemed like it was fine. The interview was quite short, however. It lasted about five minutes and was really informal. They like to know about your time management skills and if you're personable.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at J. Alexander's.

    Interview

    The interview process here is quick and efficient. You may be interviewed as soon as you walk in with your resume, as I was. I was told they never are officially hiring, rather they always accept candidates when they see potential. I had to pass three interviews and a test before being hired.
