    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.

    Hostess Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Louisville, KY

    Positive Experience
    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
    Accepted Offer
    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.

He then told me to hold on and he would get the hiring manager, he came out and told me to apply again with a different email and the test would come through. Well here I am 4 different email addresses late and on 2 different computers and still no assessment test. I called this morning and was told there is nothing they can do.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Red Robin (Sherwood, OR).

    Interview

    I applied online. I went into the store to give the Managers a resume. They sent it back and told me simply to apply online. Managers sat down with me and chatted. Standard interview questions were asked. Interview was easy. Management was friendly. Looking at other people who were interviewed I realize now I tried much harder than other people who were hired. Many people came to interview in jeans and t shirt and were hired.

    Host/Hostess Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Manchester, NH
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Red Robin (Manchester, NH) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Went in and asked if they were hiring they told me to apply online and I would her back within 2-3 days. I didn't hear anything so I went back and got a formal interview the next day. It went well but then was told I should also meet with the front of house manager the next day. I went in and was sat and told a manager would be right out. I sat there and waited for an hour. The manager never met with me nor did another server check in to see what I was waiting for or anything. It was ridiculous to have something scheduled at a certain time (so they should be prepared) and then sit there for an hour and still nothing.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Red Robin (Greenwood Village, CO).

    Interview

    The interview process was so laid back and easy. It made you feel comfortable and relaxed. At times it did seem a little rushed though as if they had more pressing issues. If you are going to schedule an interview make sure you leave yourself with enough time to actually talk with the candidate.
