Waitress Interview

Waitress
Norwich, England

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at T.G.I. Friday's in August 2013.

Interview Details Applied online, then received 'pre interview' questions to fill out, after 4 days received an email inviting me to an Audition interview. Arrived, played some team work games, got to know the group (only around 20 of us there) then had 2 minutes to do our party trick/performance/presentation. I did a performance of a song with my guitar, someone did a tap dance and someone else brought along props to do with their life and spoke about them. They then ask you simple questions like 'how do you think your personality will fit in at Fridays?' And 'where do you see yourself in 10 years time'.
That is all done in front of a group, then individually taken away for questions. Simple ones again like 'why fridays?' 'Do you have any holidays planned?' 'How do you plan to get here.'
Still waiting on whether I was successful or not as audition was only yesterday.

Interview Question – 'What would your personality bring to Fridays, how would you fit in?'   View Answer

Line Cook Interview

Line Cook
Gateshead, England

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at T.G.I. Friday's in July 2012.

Interview Details 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.

Interview Question – What gets on your nerves? What niggles you?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Shifted me for an OJE (On the Job Experience) shift the next day and advised me to wear suitable clothing. But not necessarily and offer. More of a test-run

Beverage Manager Interview

Beverage Manager
Charlotte, NC (US)

I applied through another source and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at T.G.I. Friday's in April 2012.

Interview Question – The fact that I was an hourly employee who had been with the company for many years my questions were more based on what I could bring to the management team to increase scores and profitability.   Answer Question

Assistant Manager Interview

Assistant Manager
Denver, CO (US)

I applied online and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at T.G.I. Friday's in February 2014.

Interview Details Upon receiving my resume I was invited to take an online assessment. I did not hear back so I followed up and was finally scheduled for a phone interview with HR - 11 days later. I was informed that I would be moving forward in the process with the district manager, but I did not hear back. I once again followed up and was finally scheduled to meet with a GM instead - this occurred 21 days after last contact. I was informed by the GM that I would be moving forward with the District Manager as originally intended. Once again there was no follow up - I tried contacting HR twice over the next 11 days until finally receiving a stock email letting me know they were moving in another direction. The entire process from beginning to end took 43 days.

Interview Question – Questions were fairly standard but interviews were very long - At least 90 minutes each and the GM was 20 minutes late to the second.   View Answer
