I applied in-person. The process took 5 days – interviewed at Outback Steakhouse (Miami, FL) in July 2015.
Conducted during an Outback job fair. While there were a lot of people there and the wait to interview was long, the interview itself was short. I primarily answered questions about why I wanted the job (I had never served before), why I should be hired, etc. Easy and got the job.

I applied online. The process took 4 days – interviewed at Outback Steakhouse (Rochester, NY) in June 2015.
Applied online. I was called the next day to set up an interview. Went in and was asked 'form' questions. Sandy didn't really seem interested while interviewing me. Stated the interview process was three interviews with the final interview with the owner and for me to call back later that evening to check my status. Called back but she stated they chose someone else. Hiring one person, I doubt it. I asked why not me and she stated I didn't have the computer experience. She never asked about it during the interview. I have several years restaurant and customer service experience and work full time during the day with extensive computer experience, much more than clicking buttons on a POS system. Especially now that the systems are on the tables for the patrons. Bottom line, I wasn't hired because of my age.

I applied online. The process took 1 day – interviewed at Outback Steakhouse (Burlington, NC) in June 2015.
The manger interviewed me for only 5 minutes and told me to go home and take a survey and that when I was finished they would call her and call me back for another interview. It has been at least two weeks and I have yet to receive another phone call.

I applied online. The process took a week – interviewed at Outback Steakhouse (Royersford, PA) in June 2015.
I had an initial phone interview which led to 2 in person interviews. Overall it was not very professional, the manager who had scheduled my interview called out sick and never followed up with me and an assistant manager had to do the interview which i could tell she does not do it very often. It took about 45 minutes for them to interview me the first time. The follow up interview was scheduled for the following week with the original manager and took about 30 minutes to see me. The interview was awkward as i had to re-introduce myself to her and basically reexplain the phone screen and the 1st interview to her. She seemed disinterested the whole time and only interested if i was going to make a career out of it.She said to think about taking the job that night and she would call the next day and if she didn't call me i was to call her the following day, which i did and she did not answer the phone which seemed very unprofessional. Overall this store did not seem like they cared enough to hire someone, I'm sure its very different between stores and i would recommend this restaurant to others. They responded quickly to me submitting to the job which was very nice.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Outback Steakhouse.
Applied online, called in for an interview, set up a second interview, offered the job. The entire hiring process was incredibly fast and streamlined. After being hired, there were training shifts and an orientation that were required. While this section took about 3 weeks to complete, it was fairly straightforward. Overall, the experience was okay. The managers and staff were polite and friendly during the interview/ hiring process.

I applied online. The process took 6 days – interviewed at Outback Steakhouse (Chesapeake, VA) in March 2015.
Applied online and received an email the next day to call to schedule an interview. My first interview was held with the proprietor and he asked basic questions that I assume he asks all candidates. He schedule me for a follow up interview with another manager which was a more personal interview. Questions were asked about how my life is and what my interests and hobbies were, and why I wanted to work for Outback. I was hired concluding the second interview.
