Hostess Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Denton, TX

Application Details

I applied online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at BJ's Restaurants in August 2014.

Interview Details

The environment for this interview was very nice, it was just the person I was being interviewed by. Yes, it was my first interview, but i was't even given a chance. He acted like I was wasting his time and didn't really have any kind of interest in interviewing me, or anyone else for that matter. I was interviewed by one of the chefs, I'm assuming because of his chef jacket, which was a little odd to me. None-the-less, within 5 minutes he pretty much told they weren't going to hire me.

    Interview Details

    Very pleasant yet short talk with the manager on duty. I felt it went well. I told the manager I was up for the challenge and enjoyed customer service. I felt like they take a lot of pride in putting the customer first.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days - interviewed at BJ's Restaurants in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I saw an ad on Craigslist that they were hiring. I applied online, went in that day and asked to speak to a manager. The manager went over my application and asked me a few questions about my current job and why I wanted to work there. Then she set up an interview with the Senior Asst manager a couple of days later. He asked me about my availability, experience, how I would work there on top off school and another job. Then he set up an interview with the GM. He asked me a few situational questions and asked about my work performance. After about 10 minutes he extended an offer and I had orientation the next day. All managers were really nice and easy to talk to.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 days - interviewed at BJ's Restaurants in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    I filled out an application online and received a call for an interview the next morning. The application consisted of the usual 'type-in' information then asked you to complete a math test and a personality assessment.

    At the interview, I first sat down with one of the "regular" managers. He asked about my previous knowledge of their restaurant, my favorite items, etc. Very easy. I then went back to the waiting room, waited another thirty minutes and then interviewed with the General Manager. He asked me what my major was in school and then we talked about that for twenty minutes before he told me the pay scale.

    None. He gave me the pay and I accepted. Hostess pay was based on school level. Those in high school received a base pay, those in college received $0.50 more, and those with degrees received $1.00 more.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at BJ's Restaurants in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied here in Lubbock like two weeks ago and I surprisingly got a call when I came back from college for an interview the next day. I showed up and did my interview with two different managers and I got hired somewhat on the spot! I had submit my documents the next week so wish me luck! I would definitely be confident on your answers since the questions are simple, yet more something that they would like to get you know better. The managers were super sweet.
