    Interview

    Seemed good from the interview .. the management portray the job as great potential moneymaker just need to upsell and give service to their standards. The manager seemed smart and pretty friendly .. I was hired in my second interview on the spot. And they seemed really interested in hiring a qualified team member.

    Interview

    Quick and painless. First a phone call then two interviews. One with AM and second with GM. The GM was split between two stores so overall focus on new hires is low.

    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.

    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.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at T.G.I. Friday's in May 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online and got a call back about four or five days later. I applied to be a server but because I have hostess experience they'd rather start me out as a hostess because she said that's what they normally do and then I'll work my way up to being a server. It was a standard interview and it was pretty laid back.

    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.

    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.
