    Seemed good from the interview .. the management portray the job as great potential moneymaker just need to upsell and give service to their standards. The manager seemed smart and pretty friendly .. I was hired in my second interview on the spot. And they seemed really interested in hiring a qualified team member.

    Host/Hostess Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Applied online, was emailed for interview request. First interview was face to face with the Restaurant Manager (Front of House Manager). Second interview was face to face with the GM. Third interview was on the phone with the District Manager. I probably only needed the 3rd interview because I hadn't had any restaurant experience yet. TGI Friday's is looking for FOH employees that can be engaging with any person who walks through the door. If you can't keep the conversation flowing with your interviewer then there's a good chance you won't get a job offer. Also, an open schedule is the most desirable in a H/H.

    Interview

    Quick and painless. First a phone call then two interviews. One with AM and second with GM. The GM was split between two stores so overall focus on new hires is low.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at T.G.I. Friday's (Franklin, TN) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Very brief interview process. I was called and asked to do a face-to-face interview the following day. I arrived for my interview with the Bar Manager and was asked several typical interview questions. I was then interviewed by the General Manager immediately after. I was offered the job following both of these interviews.

    Hostess/Server Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at T.G.I. Friday's (Tampa, FL).

    Interview

    If you're a bubbly person then the interview would be fairly easy. The manager loves someone with passion and just overall goofy, basically a people person. The questions were average because you would have to take your mind out of being the server and think of yourself as being the customer and your wants and how you would want an issue to be fixed. I told a few corny jokes and the manager loved them. I just believe as previously stated that as long as you outgoing you would do fine.
