Manager Interview

Application Details

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Chili's.

Interview Details

I applied to the position twice. Once through their website and again through craig's list. The craig's list account was the one that got me the interview. It was a semi casual interview in the dining room of one of the restaurants. Everyone was prompt and professional. They talk alot about their culture, and how important finding the right person for the job. They were very out going and talkative. Conversation flowed easily from question to question. They truly want to get to know you as a person, not just what you can bring to the team, but really making sure the fit is right.

Interview Questions
  • The "Tell me a time when" questions are always the hardest. They wanted to know a time when I failed at work, how I handled it and what I leared from the experience.   Answer Question
Negotiation Details
Chili's gave me a generous offer right out of college and there was not much negotiation. They asked me what I wanted to make and they gave me it.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Chili's.

    Interview Details

    The hiring was like a cattle call, well over 50 managers herded into a small room for further interviews. Area director was very unorganized, and seemed pretty much disinterested in even being there. When moved to second interview it was short and sweet and left you hanging. Follow up phone calls where left messages went unanswered

    The process took 1 week - interviewed at Chili's in February 2008.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed first with recruiter on the phone, then she called me in and interviewed me in the office. She then had an area director contacted me and we met at a local chilis. He spoke more about chilis then we did about myself. My advice is to look on the website and read the description of the job positions they are looking to fill. There are key words (hospitality, culture) that will score you bonus points. Do research on the company's global growth and recent business changes.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Chili's in January 2009.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted promptly, and a first interview was scheduled with an area manager. I got a neutral feeling-- couldn't really tell if the guy liked me or not. About 3 weeks passed, and then got a call from another area manager for a second interview. The second interview went well, and I received the job offer at the end. Good interview-- just a very long process. I am glad I still had my old job in the meantime.
