    Interview

    Walked right in, no resume. Greeted by manager. Interview questions were very easy. They don't open til 10am. So calling to make an apt earlier in the day, when they are not busy or coming in right at 10 when it is slower is the best time to see a manager.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Chili's (League City, TX) in June 2010.

    Interview

    You interview with a manager during the slow hours(typically 2-4pm), from there you are invited to a training seminar. You meet at a restaurant location central to the surrounding locations early, before they open. You fill out paperwork, watch some training videos, and hopefully be invited back to the restaurant you initially applied to. From there you have 6-7 days of training focused on different groupings of food and learning how to juggle tables. You are tested daily on you food and typically presented with a couple of those meals you get to feast on. If you pass, you stay. Work your butt off and you can make money no problem.

    Interview Questions

    • testing over the salads is difficult. A lot of different items and you have to be very specific.   1 Answer
