Restaurant Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Red Lobster in April 2016.

Interview

I applied through the Talent team for a position in Virginia Beach, Va. The phone interview was pretty through, yet simple. Took about an hour. I was then given the green light to meet with the District Manager. Met at one of the Red Lobster restaurants, got to know each other, and I landed an offer. Had to do a background check and drug screen, then I got my start date. So far, so good.

    Interview

    I have a lot of management experience so it was a no brainier to hire me. I interviewed with the Talent Acquisition team then with 2 Director of Operations. After my back ground check was passed..*whew thank god* and i passed my drug check *also another close one* they offered me the job. I like the fact I get paid every week. I would say I like the fact that once they got to know me the care about where I work they want me to be successful, my previous employer was not like that at all more of a SINK or SWIM situation.
