    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Red Lobster.

    Interview

    It is a two interview process. The first interview is with the service manager and the second interview is with the general manger. They both ask basic interview questions such as tell me about yourself, availability, scenario type questions. Be prepared to give them two references. They do check and call these references, at least in my experience. Each interview lasted about 10 to 15 minutes.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Red Lobster in May 2016.

    Interview

    One of the worst experiences I've ever had interviewing for a job. Called me in for 3 interviews, was a total waste of my time.

    The first interview went really well. The manager liked me and called me in for a second interview.
    The second interview was even better. It was a different manager who just adored me and said her team would love to have me aboard.
    Here's where things got bad. They told me to come in on Tuesday for my 3rd interview, and it was Thursday. On Monday, they called to say they had a scheduling conflict and that I needed to re-schedule for Wednesday. When I called to reschedule, they were rude and disrespectful to me and told me to "just come in whenever."
    So I come in at the same time as my previous interviews Wednesday and get told they're busy and I should come in same time tomorrow.
    By this time I'm pissed.
    So I come in the next day and meet with the third manager, who looked disinterested and already seemed to dislike me. She asked me short questions and looked annoyed and busy. That interview lasted 5 minutes and I knew I didn't get it. She said she would email me the next day, and sure enough, the next day I got a rejection email.

    They were rude and flakey. I would not ever eat here ever again.

    Interview

    Applied online. Got a call back within a week/week and a half. (After working there for a while, they have certain times they are allowed to schedule interviews, so don't stress if it's not right away.) If you need to call and check call between 2-4pm which is the slow time. Had an interview the next day of the call. Met with the hiring and training manager. Then with the general manager. Really connected with the GM. Got hired on the spot.
