    Utility (Dishwasher) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Brampton, ON
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Red Lobster in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    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

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Brampton, ON
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Red Lobster in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    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

    Host/Hostess Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Red Lobster in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    The whole process took about two weeks. I applied online for a position as a hostess. I went to the restaurant in-person to ask if they were hiring, and the hostess was very adamant that, if the company wanted me, they'd send me an email to set up an interview. I thought for sure that that would be the end of it (because I have no restaurant experience), but a few days later I got an email that they wanted to meet with me. I called and we set up an interview. I went in and was seated in the restaurant and told to read a little pamphlet about the dress code and expectations for the position I applied for. Then I met with my interviewer, who was very pleasant and professional. She asked me standard, basic interview questions, and at the end she said that she wanted to set up a second interview for the next day. When I went back the next day, the man who interviewed me for my second interview was also very pleasant and conversational. Some of the questions were a little more tricky, but I just tried to stay as friendly and honest as possible. At the end of that interview, he said he'd like to "take me on board" and to come in the next week for orientation. All in all, it was a very pleasant experience and everyone was very kind throughout the whole process.
