    Service Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    I interviewed with the DO and the GM at their training store. They mostly just asked me about my previous experience and work ethic. Honestly, the DO was very distracted by the conducting the interview in the store. They were prepping for lunch and he was very busy watching what they were doing. He seemed more interested in them than in me. It boiled down to a get-to-know-you chat.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at T.G.I. Friday's (Concord, NH) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online about a week ago , got a call for an interview with the beverage manager on Sunday , interviewed me today on Tuesday . Walked in , was seated by the host , given something to drink , and waited about a minute for the manager to sit down with me . Started off with the basics , then proceeded to the questions . Manager seemed genuine in the way that this wasn't just some interview but seemed like he actually cared . Finished the interview with saying he liked me and that he would pass the interview onto his boss tomorrow and that she would be in touch sometime this week if they thought I was a good fit ! Can't wait to see ! I will update later this week !

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at T.G.I. Friday's (Auburn Hills, MI) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was very easy. It took maybe fifteen minutes. They will basically let almost anybody work in the restaurant environment. You do not need much experience, although it is helpful. I applied online, but after the interview the interviewing manager made me fill out the entire application again, which was kind of annoying.

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at T.G.I. Friday's (Concord, NC) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online about a week ago and they called me yesterday (Sunday) around 5 pm to set up an interview. I originally had an interview elsewhere so we set up the interview for Wednesday. The other company completely wasted my time and I was only there for about 5 minutes, so I called TGI Fridays and asked if they were still interested in interviewing me today. The manager agreed and I came and she sat down with me for a second. No real interview questions, just if I was in school and if I had a current job (this is my first job). She then said that the job is mine if I wanted it, I filled out the paperwork, and I start on Wednesday. I am so excited. While she was bringing me the paperwork and making copies of my license and stuff, I spoke to the hostess and she told me some things about the job. She was very friendly and it seems like a very fun place to work. I'll write a review after i've worked here for about a month or so.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at T.G.I. Friday's in July 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online through a fairly easy application process. I got a call a week later on a Saturday asking if I was still interested in a job and if I could come in for an interview the following monday. I interviewed with one of the managers and she just gave me the overview of the job (how the pay worked and the responsibility of the job) and also asked some questions about my availability and experience. I told her this would be my 1st job and she didn't really care that I didn't have experience. She called me back a few days later and asked if I could come in thursday for another interview with a different manager who asked more personal get to know you/work related questions. He said he'd call me back Friday if I got the job and sure enough I got a call that Friday.

    Negotiation

    They were pretty understanding of my schedule with school and extra curricular activities and said I would probably get most of my hours on the weekend, but I guess we will have to see what they do for me when I start getting scheduled
