    Interview

    Applied online and got a call a day later. Had a phone interview with the general manager and he scheduled me to come in for an interview the next day. Went in and briefly talked to the general manager. He basically asked me questions about school, my current job, and my work experience. He asked how much I wanted to make and why I left previous jobs. From there, I interviewed with the assistant manager who was not so friendly and asked my why I want to be a hostess and would I be able to deal with different personalities. I answered every questioned and did not fold under pressure. After speaking with him, he asked for my license and social security card. He walked to the back to make a copy and asked me to come back Monday to do paperwork.

    Host Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Red Lobster (Chicago, IL) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Quick, seemed as if decision was made before I came in, said I needed more experience but they had that information before the interview. Another girl was getting interviewed at the same time and it was fun and light and lasted longer, started before and ended after. I do not think it was unfair, but I do think they should not interview if they already made up their mind.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Red Lobster (Mishawaka, IN).

    Interview

    I applied for the position online and received an email a few weeks later saying they want to interview me for the position and call within the next 2 days between 1-4 and ask for a manager. I called at 3 PM excited to set up an interview. When the manager got on the phone, he told me they were too busy to talk and to call back another day. I began to ask what time or day works best, but he hung up on me before I could finish my sentence.

    The manager felt very rude to me, as he didn't tell me what day or time to call back. He didn't take my name or phone number to call me back. They wanted an interview, but didn't want to treat me well.

    Host/Hostess Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Angelo, TX
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Red Lobster (San Angelo, TX) in February 2018.

    Interview

    I applied online originally for a serving assistant/busser. A few days later I received an email asking to call to set up an interview. Before calling myself, I received a call from the manager and I scheduled an interview appointment that day. When I got there, I told the hostess about my appointment and she directed me to an empty table to wait for the manager. Within 5 minutes the manager came and introduced herself. She then explained that I could interview for a hostess position because that's what she was mainly looking for and because they didn't use bussers anymore. Of course, I agreed and said I would love to interview for a hostess job because that's what I wanted as well. She had papers and wrote notes about all my answers. She was friendly but also seemed like she was busy. She asked very generic questions about myself, availability and any experience I had. I've only done child care and tutoring jobs so I didn't have a lot to say. The interview lasted about 10-15 minutes total and went by really quickly. She stated at the end that she had many others to interview and I would receive a call back the next day if I got the job. I did receive a call back on the next day from the manager, but it was only to confirm my availability. Never got the call that I wanted and a few weeks later I got an email saying I didn't get the job. As it was my first experience doing an interview for a part-time job, it well quite well and was definitely a learning experience even though I didn't get the job.
