    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Red Lobster (Lufkin, TX) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Had first interview with the restaurant manager to review application information to make sure all information submitted was correct. The manager then proceeded to ask situational questions that included different scenarios that would occur in the job restaurant and how I would handle those situations. I also had a second interview with the general manager, which included different scenario questions in which I had to tell her my handling of those situations. Since I was applying for a position in the kitchen I prepared a an entree and side dish for the second interview to show that I was capable of the position in which I was applying for, since the position called for being crossed training in all positions in the kitchen.

    Hostess Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Red Lobster (Federal Way, WA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email that wanted me to call and set up an interview. The next day I called and set up an interview for Monday. I arrived and they made me wait twenty minutes to talk to someone. The interview was pretty easy, and it was the lady's first day that was interviewing me. She said she would call me the next day, but never did. So I decided to call them and set up another interview the following week. Once again I arrived and waited twenty five minutes for a five minute interview! The woman was extremely rude and acted as if she had somewhere to go. She said I would receive an email about if I got the job or not later that day. I got an email that said I did not get the job. A complete waste of time and management.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Red Lobster in March 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of three different interviews. I applied about two to three weeks prior. I was asked typical questions such as why I wanted to work there and what my strengths and weaknessess are etc. The interviews were not hard, just be genuine and have some general knowledge about serving. The final interview was more like a meeting with the GM. At that point I was hired on the spot.
