Hostess Interview

Anonymous Employee in Milwaukee, WI

Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at T.G.I. Friday's (Milwaukee, WI).

Interview

Went in to apply at T.G.I. Fridays and had a short interview with the manager. He was very personable and made the interview process enjoyable as I did not feel that I was being forced to say a particular answer or was supposed to talk my resume up. The behavioral questions asked were fair as they showed how I would mingle with prospective employees. I was offered the job later that day when I received a call from the manager.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at T.G.I. Friday's (West Palm Beach, FL) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I knew the guy was going to be bad the moment he called for an interview. He called at 10 pm and asked for an interview so I asked if he meant right now? and he's all like no its too late.(its too late for an interview but not too late for him to call me.?) .they didn't even bother to ask me for my resume, the guy was late and I could tell that weren't going to hire me the moment they looked at me because they were so rude but instead of that he tried to make the job seem incredibly bad like I had to do all of this extra work like clean every part of the store even though I was applying as a hostess.

    I applied online. I interviewed at T.G.I. Friday's.

    Interview

    Very easy. Was called in for an interview, took place in the restaurant at one of the tables. They were very friendly. They did not ask much. Mainly asked about previous experience, as i had worked at a different location. How I found out about the job, and why I would like to work there.
    It was a very relaxed environment.

    Interview

    I walked in for an application and they had me fill it out right then and there, and then wait for an interview. They had just gotten rid of a hostess so I don't think this is how it normally operates.
