    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Not too bad - normal interview questions and they ask you to fake sell something to them. It is one on one and you have to take a menu test after your interview. They usually will hire unless something crazy happens

    Bartender Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Red Lobster.

    Interview

    Focus on general interview / getting along with co-worker questions. They focused on serving more than bartending. There was an online applicaton which I have no real memory of (it wasn't difficult) and an in person interview which was either 1 on 1 or with a second applicant. Not too difficult if you are modestly personable.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Red Lobster.

    Interview

    It was about a 2 week process, many people were interviewed that day and we took turns. A couple of simple questions nothing crazy. What they really look for is either experience or a good reference.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Red Lobster.

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty quick once you have one. The online application has a questionnaire portion that determines whether you should get an interview. I had one with an assistant manager and then, if they approve, they send you to the general manager. They were very open and honest with how the pay works and quickly set up orientation once I accepted the offer.

    Only two interviews. First interview was with one of the managers and then second and final with GM. Fairly straightforward. It was a very easy process. Did not need anything special for the interview.
