    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Chili's.

    Interview Details

    Super easy interview, the manager asked me to talk about my interests and hobbies and made me feel as relaxed as possible. I had the interview with one of the managers, and ended with the general manager who offered me the job on the spot, day of my interview. It was a very quick process and I was working in a matter of no time. They treat you like family when you work for Chili's and help you out no matter what.

    I didn't negotiate because it had been my first job interview at that time, although if I could do it over I would ask if there were open opportunities to advance in the company. (to-go, QA, serving, etc.)

    Basic interview. A manager calls about your application and sets up a time for you to come in for an interview. You basically meet with them during a shift and they go over your application and ask the basic questions: what is your work history? why chilis? then they let you know they will be contacting you soon.
