    Server Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at T.G.I. Friday's (Mansfield, MA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Brief and positive. Management was definitely not judging me on past experience or education but on my ability to relate to the customer and provide a positive customer experience. Smile and be happy. You'll do fine.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at T.G.I. Friday's (Miami, FL) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I called to see if they were hiring and the hostess told me that I could apply online ( i did but restaurants don't usually look at those 1st) or i could walk in from 2:30pm to 4pm to fill out a paper app and ask to speak to a manager. I went there that same day, filled out a paper app and interviewed with a manager. She told me to come back a day later to interview with the general manager and i did. This was easier than waiting for someone to look at my app online.

    I had to go through four different interviews throughout 2 months before getting the job, I met with all of the managers except for one.

    Server Interview

    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.
