Host/Takeout Interview

Anonymous Employee in Hurst, TX
Declined Offer
Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at BJ's Restaurants (Hurst, TX) in March 2015.

Interview

I applied online and took about 6 days to get a call back for an interview. Had 2 interviews and applied for Hostess and takeout. I got rescheduled from original appointment time and when i got there, I had to wait 20 minutes. The 1st interview was a hiring manager that lasted less than 10 minutes and she basically assured me that I had a job for being a hostess. This manager asked me to come the next day for a interview with the GM. Came back the next day and the GM was very rude. He even left the table to speak with other employees 3 TIMES. He would forget what we were speaking about and then informed that they hired a lot of hostess and maybe I should consider another position inside the restaurant. He basically devalued me and said I was possibly going to be best for a busser or a prep cook. Even with my previous job experience. I declined his offer for being any of those positions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at BJ's Restaurants (Los Angeles, CA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Interview process was really easy. I walked in to establishment where I wanted to work. I asked for the manager and then he asked me to fill out a form since I came in when they were looking for positions. I f they have time they set up a interview with you on the spot and ask you to get some stuff together in the meantime. At the interview, if the manager likes you, you will be offered the job.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at BJ's Restaurants (San Rafael, CA).

    Interview

    The interview process was really quick. I applied on Friday night, got called Monday afternoon, had an interview for Tuesday morning with the Take-out manager, then they asked me to come back to meet two other managers, and I got offered the job right on the spot. The only annoying thing is that when you are hired, they tell you that you are coming for an orientation but really it's filling out a lot of paperwork.
