It was a series of several online profiles and questionnaires that asked you everything from personal information to character and problem solving abilities. Overall, the first half of the online portion of the interview is what you would generally expect; however, the second portion seemed very unusual, especially for the job. It was a timed multiple choice test that required everything from math skills to higher level thinking.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at BJ's Restaurants (Pasadena, CA) in October 2012.
Two interviews, first one with department manager, and second with the GM. Questions weren't too difficult. Asked about past jobs, such as the types of restaurants or bars previously worked in, how I got along with the managers and other employees. Asked about favorite beer and drink to make, and problem-solving techniques.
