    Host/Hostess Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Red Lobster (Virginia Beach, VA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    This was easily the easiest interview I have ever had. For the first time, I wasn't nervous being interrogated. Seemed like the manager actually wanted to know me as a person instead of just a future employee.

    Bartender Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Schaumburg, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Red Lobster (Schaumburg, IL) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Schaumburg, IL location, the guy seemed bored and didn't want to be there. Barely said hello, didn't introduce himself, but someone else said his name. He kept looking out the window, slouched in his seat, sighed multiple times, didn't take notes. He asked me 3 or 4 questions, the interview was about 5 minutes, if that. Waste of time. If someone else interviewed it might've gone better.

    I got a call from a manager asking me to come in for an interview and they also asked for my availability. I came in for my interview and they first showed me the proper work attire for every position and then continued to ask me the basic interview questions. They told me that I will need to come back for an interview with the general manager and he will determine if I'm hired or not.
