    General Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Grand Rapids, MI
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Brinker in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Was called by 2 different recruiters that were internal. One was in Chicago, one in Detroit. Had to drive 3 hours for the interview, not local locations that were not franchised. First interview went well, learned a little about the brand and where it was going. Left with a good feeling and was looking forward to a call back. Received a second interview and that also went well, asked a lot about my work history and back ground. I was explained the job descriptions and that it more than likely would require me to move in a year or two as they are closing restaurants down because of low volume sales in certain markets. After getting an offer for $55,000 and understanding the expectations of frequently relocating and restaurants closing I decided to decline the offer.

    • The interview process at Brinker is easy compared to other companies. It's probably due to the type of industry and the type of people that work there (most grew up working the restaurants). There weren't too many technical questions. You're expected to walk through your resume and speak to how you're a fit to the position you're applying for.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    Great company with a solid commitment to its employees most of whom have tenure that is unheard of in the hospitality industry. Brinker has been on some tough financial times as of late and salry rewuirements were probably out of reach for them at this time although i have yet to receive any further follow up from them after two months.
