    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Red Robin (Hamilton, NJ) in May 2018.

    Interview

    I simply went online and found Red Robin was looking for servers. I was coming home from college and thought this would be a good place to apply considering I have precious serving experience. Within hours I got an email that the GM wanted to set up an interview with me. I wasn’t coming home from school for 3 weeks but once I came home I had an interview that week. He didn’t ask any specific questions. He focused on the days I can work and guidelines. Hired on the spot. The GM seems very friendly and in excited to start training soon!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Red Robin (Plainfield, IN) in April 2018.

    Interview

    The kitchen manager was very professional yet laid back. Made me feel comfortable as if I was already part of the team. Had a second interview with the front of the house manager because the general manager had to handle business for the restaurant so it was one on one and she gave me a tour of the back of the house to let me know what I'm getting into which I feel was GREAT. Set up a 3rd interview which I'll be attending today hopefully I'll have great news and say I'm part of the team.

    Server/Bartender Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Red Robin in December 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online for a position in a new location. They called multiple times, always at night, which made it confusing for me as to when I should call back.

    When I finally set up an interview, I walked into the yet-to-open location. One of the managers brought out a book and asked questions based on the book. It lasted about 15 minutes. She told me to wait for the GM, who was speaking with another candidate.

    The GM came over after 15 minutes and asked me the exact same questions as the lower-level manager. I answered the questions and when it came time for my questions, I asked a few. To every response, he had a long, drawn out answer, pontificating about his management and success. He spoke for a solid 45 minutes. About halfway through one of his tirades, I realized that I didn't want this position, but didn't know how to excuse myself from him as he kept speaking.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Red Robin (Louisville, KY) in October 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process went pretty smoothly. It took them 2 weeks to call once I’d applied, went in and sat down 1:1 with a manager, and then the general manager. Was offered a job on the spot. When I went in for orientation though, the gm wasn’t there so I had to reschedule. Overall a pretty good experience.

    Server Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Red Robin.

    Interview

    The interview process at this location was brief (barely an interview). Quick and easy. Only a couple of questions were asked and the job was basically given on the spot. This is a revolving door atmosphere and when they are desperate to hire they do not spend much time or thought on who they bring into the company. This usually leads to less than satisfactory results so a better screening process would be preferred. For those looking to get a job asap, with little hassle, this may work for you. However, the imbalance of work ethic due to the way they choose to interview and lack of care for the employees they hire is frustrating.
