    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at T.G.I. Friday's (Cincinnati, OH) in September 2015.

    Interview

    I feel like my experience is unique. My college was hosting a job fair on campus and Fridays was there. They had computers up so people could apply right there online. It was basically a personality assessment. After I finished, the managers asked me if I would like/had time for an interview. I said yes, and i went in a seperate room with a manager. He asked me my availability, my desired pay, why Friday's, the basic questions. He told me to stop by the restarant to interview with another manager so she could meet me and decide from there whether I had the job. I got the a few days later and was interviewed by her. Then, I was interviewed by another manager. The last two told me that if I was hired they would notify me with the next steps to take. A few days later, I got an email telling me i was hired and to review some material on the same site that i used to apply.
