    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Red Lobster (Brampton, ON) in July 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online awhile ago and didn't get word for a few weeks. After some time I received an email stating they would like to see me for an interview and to call within the next 42 hours. The person I spoke to was one of the restaurant managers and she was very direct and brief with setting up an interview. I had an interview with a different manager who was very kind and easy going. He didn't ask too many questions and none of them were that difficult. About a week after the interview I was asked if I was still interested and then a training/orientation date was set up.

    Interview Questions

    • He asked basic questions such as are you able to lift a large load, are you able to work in a fast paced environment, tell me about yourself, what are your hobbies, etc. The longer questions included if you were hiring someone for this position what would you look for in a candidate, etc.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Red Lobster (Brampton, ON) in October 2012.

    Interview

    2 interviews, 1st with a manager (pretty basic questions), then the 2nd interview was with a general manager (also pretty basic questions). I applied online and got contacted via email within a week or two. I was asked to call the number listed in the email, then got my 1st interview scheduled for the next day. After that interview, I was told to watch my phone for a call regarding my second interview with a general manager (4-5 days after first interview). I also want to add that I had NO bartender or server experience, the closest experience I had was as a busser at a breakfast restaurant

    Interview Questions

    • Either there weren't any difficult or out-of-ordinary questions, or I just don't quite remember, but from what I DO remember, the questions were very basic and what you would expect from an interview   Answer Question

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Red Lobster (Mississauga, ON) in April 2012.

    Interview

    I delivered my resume in person (they take online applications now). I had a good referral from another employee. 3 weeks later I got a call about an interview. I had to fill out a long personality test (about 100 multiple choice questions), and this was followed by 2 interviews with 2 different hiring managers. I was told that I will be getting hired, and training began that evening.

    I called a few times before the hiring manager was ever there to pick up the phone. Then once I got there I told them I was there for an interview, and I waited until they where ready. I dressed to impress. We went over to a table and started the interview process.
