    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at T.G.I. Friday's in May 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and someone called me later that day. I walked in and the host told me where to sit. After a few minutes a manager came out. Overall, the interview was very relaxed and laid back. The manager just asked questions about my life and why I wanted to be a server at the restaurant. Because I didn't have any server experience, he asked how my previous retail experience would benefit me. He offered the position but the location was too far away so I declined.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at T.G.I. Friday's in May 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online and got a call back about four or five days later. I applied to be a server but because I have hostess experience they'd rather start me out as a hostess because she said that's what they normally do and then I'll work my way up to being a server. It was a standard interview and it was pretty laid back.

    Interview Questions

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    The interview process was relatively easy- I applied as a host, and was hired on the spot. But when I got to orientation, I found out that I was changed to a waitress which was extremely disappointing. The people working there are amazing, but it wasn't a good fit for me.
