    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at BJ's Restaurants.

    Interview

    I never went through the interview process. I applied online. You fill out an application and from there you are required to do a test that determines your skills at numbers and critical thinking. After that the second portion is all about you - no right or wrong answers. It takes about 10 minutes or longer to do depending on how you want to answer so make sure you have time on your hands to complete everything.

    Interview

    I applied online and the next day got a call to set up an interview for two days later. I was interviewed by an assistant manager who was very nonchalant and relaxed, he asked about the hours I would be able to work and my previous work experience. The interview lasted about five minutes and then he set me up for a second interview for the following day. In the second interview I was interviewed by the manager who was very nice and also relaxed. The interview also lasted about five minutes and he just asked questions about my personality. I was hired on the spot and asked to come in the following day to fill out paperwork.

    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.
