    Hostess Interview

    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.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at T.G.I. Friday's.

    Interview

    Literally two minute interview where my answers were written on a post it stamp. Asked if I worked as a server previously, asked if I had a car, asked what my availability would be, and then told they would talk to the general manager and see what they could do. As long as you served before, they'll hire you. Friday's is always searching for servers because people are always quitting or being fired.

    Interview

    I went there and spoke to the front of the house manager. Then I had a second interview with the general manager. Got hired. As a host first then moved up to server. It was the day I lost a part of my soul.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at T.G.I. Friday's (Monroeville, PA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    There were separate interviews. I got my first one by calling in and asking if anyone has reviewed my online application, they hadn't but they called me back that evening and we set up an interview. Very laid back but still professional. Managers very nice and welcoming. Asked good questions not just the basics because they are looking for good fits for the team not just extra bodies. I've also since working there seen many people be interviewed while only a few actually got offered positions which also shows that. Also the managers were all excited to answer any questions I had about the company.

    Interview

    Easy, went in for 20 minutes and met with assistant manager. Was offered job at the end of second interview with manager. Questions were easy and direct. If you've ever interviewed at a restaurant before it's very similar.

    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.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at T.G.I. Friday's.

    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.
