Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at T.G.I. Friday's (Saratoga Springs, NY) in September 2015.

Interview

I had an interview with the kitchen manager and then the general manager. The K.M. was really nice and it seemed like she was offering me a job and then she told me to come back to speak with the G.M. The GM was pushing my buttons and asking impromptu kitchen safety questions that are important.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at T.G.I. Friday's (Hattiesburg, MS) in February 2014.

    Interview

    I was called after applying online to schedule an interview. I showed up and was interviewed at a bar table during lunch. The interviewer had to leave the interview several times to assist in the understaffed kitchen. The interviewer again left to discuss the interview with the general manager. I sat for about 30 minutes. More than double my actual interview time. The general manager came out and we went through a brief reiteration. He was much more confident and immediately extended me an offer that was very... Iffy. And began describing how things worked in the store. He offered pay lower than my previous job which he was aware of. I turned it down and he immediately increased his offer. I agreed and was given a brief tour and told to come in the next week for online training.

    Interview

    Manager sat me down at a table and asked about previous experience. The process didn't take long. He was mostly interested in if I was able to handle the stress and how well I could work with others. They are very busy so he made sure I'd be able to keep up.

    Negotiation

    Negotiation is possible. They will most likely tell you they will start you out at 8. If you have any previous cooking experience decline and shoot for 9. Or if they tell you 9 based on your moderate to high level of experience, decline and shoot for 10 ect.

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at T.G.I. Friday's (Orlando, FL) in August 2012.

    Interview

    the interview process was positive and motivational. The person that interviewed me was very personable and down to earth. It felt like I was catching up with a friend. The vibe was comfortable and it made me feel less anxious or nervous as I previously would feel in interviews. After work related questions they ask about your personal interests.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at T.G.I. Friday's (Gateshead, England (UK)) in July 2012.

    Interview

    Turned up for an interview just before the place opened. Offered a drink from a member of staff. Had a chat with a member of staff (informal) before speaking to the manager. Manager came out and introduced himself. Seemed like a nice, light-hearted and relaxed guy so it was easy for me to relax too. Had a chat about previous employment and what-not. Nothing hard really. Lead me out.
