Very Easy Interview

Host Interview

Host
Austin, TX

I applied online - interviewed at Chili's in August 2013.

Interview Details – It was really quick interview! Interview was suppose to be at 2:30, but I arrived around 2:10 and was out no later than 2:20. They told me that they weren't quite looking for a host currently (which was weird since they had ads up....), but that she would contact her partner and see if they can fit me in the schedule. She then my got my phone number and asked what school I attended. It was really quick and nothing hard! She asked only for my age, number, and school basically. They haven't contacted me back yet.

Interview Question – No difficult or unexpected questions for me! Very quick and personal questions.   Answer Question

Average Interview

Host Interview

Host
Yuba City, CA

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Chili's in January 2011.

Interview Details – I arrived at 2 pm and asked to come back in an hour due to the increased amount of customers at the time. At 3 pm I arrived and was given an application to fill out. After filling the application a general manager sat with me to discuss various information on my application like "When are you available?" or "What brought you here today?" After the short interview I was given a pre-employment exam that consisted of various math and english problems that analyzed competency and a personality test. Overall the test took 2 hours to complete and I passed. After the manager told me I would be getting a call later if I was considered.

Interview Question – "Describe a time where you had to deal with an angry customer. How did you deal with the situation?"   Answer Question
