Prep Cook Interview
I applied through snagajob, and was hired on the spot at my interview because they were desperate for prep cooks. The restuarant industry has quite the turnover rate. I interviewed with a wonder manager. Back of house is almost always more laid back than front of house, because customers can't see you.

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Chili's (Tulare, CA) in January 2014.
It was very easy. Asked basic questions about HCCP. What to wear. Talked a lot about how you would have to do over time. Asked how long it should take to close down your station
They hired me on the spot. First said I would be making $9 an hour. Then once hired they only payed $8.00

I applied online – interviewed at Chili's (Mesa, AZ) in May 2013.
Application was online and included a personality test. This generated a generic email response saying that I looked like a good fit for the position and requesting that I schedule an interview. The interview was in the afternoon with a front-of-the-house manager (the kitchen manager wasn't available) and consisted entirely of behavior based questions, i.e., the kind where the interviewer says something like "tell me about a time when you had a conflict with a supervisor and how you resolved it". On some of the questions, I couldn't think of the requested example, which is why I'm not very good with this type of interview. About a day later, the manager called to tell me I hadn't gotten the job. A week or two later, however, another manager called to ask if I was still available, but I wasn't.
- All behavior based questions, nothing related specifically to the job for which I applied. Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 4 days – interviewed at Chili's (Huntington Beach, CA) in March 2013.
I applied online and two days later I scheduled an interview with them. My interview went well and very easy questions to answer which led me to a second interview with the GM. The GM was suppose to call me back for a job offer which he had promised but he never called back. After a few days of consideration, I called back to see the status of my employment, but they told me that the GM is busy and will return my call in a couple of hours but never did. I called again the next day and they told me that they will call me back in an hour but never did.
