Server Interview

Application Details

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Chili's in April 2011.

Interview Details

I went in and filled out an application. I was then told to come back in 3 days and take a personality assessment/intelligence test. The test was pretty easy, just answer the questions honestly and with a modicum of common sense and you will pass. After you pass the assessment you will have an interview with the hiring manager and he will make the final decision but honestly if you pass the assessment you will get the job about 90% of the time.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lodi, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lodi, CA
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Chili's in July 2008.

    Interview Details

    You need to arrive at the place of desired employment on a weekday between the hours of 2-4pm. You will ask to speak to a manager about applying for a job. You will then sit down and fill out an application, followed by a question sheet. This is going to determine weather you have the desired attitude and drive to work there. If you pass, usually you move onto a series of two more tests. Sometimes they'll ask you to come back on a different day to speak to a different manager so the entire management team can have the opportunity to meet you. If you pass all three tests, they call you back and you complete your training with another series of tests. These tests will be on the food items, abbreviation, and the OS the computers work off of. If you show potential and pass all 5 days of testing/training, you will then be a full employee.

    Interview Questions
    • "Why do you want to work here?" "What are your expectations about working here? For yourself and from the company?"   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    There is no negotiation. If you pass the tests, you're hired. The only negotiating is done with scheduling. All servers make minimum wage and then work off of their tips.
