    Utility (Dishwasher) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Brampton, ON
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Brampton, ON
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed 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 weeksinterviewed 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

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Red Lobster.

    Interview Details

    I received an email stating they were interested in interviewing me and to call the phone number. I called and set up an interview for two days later. I showed up, interviewed with one of the leaders (I believe she was a shift manager), and then set up another interview for about three days later with the store manager. They just asked about my availability, what-if situations (for example, "How would you respond if someone was upset with their service and complained while they were leaving?" and things like that).

    Interview Questions
    • I had a really hard time with, "What does the word respect mean to you?" Only because it was hard for me to describe on the spot what it means to me without using the actual word.   Answer Question
