    Approached the manager and requested an interview. He in turn asked for a resume and why I wanted to work there. Once seeing my experience he scheduled an interview for the following week.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Outback Steakhouse.

    Interview

    Well I filled out an application online got a call the next day. Got a interview within a few days. Interviewer was very nice and set me up for a second interview. I got the job within a week of filling the application. Simple process. I didn't have any job experience so I'm grateful that Outback gave me a chance. First interview: personal, tell me about yourself. Second interview: goals, recent projects, leadership.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Outback Steakhouse.

    Interview

    First step was taking a large personality test. Then once you pass that they give you a one-on-one interview with the hiring manager. They'll ask typical interview questions, straight from a packet. If you pass that then you move on to the final round of taking the food/drink test. It's brutal - fill in the blank, no word bank, entire menu test. Once you pass that with at least a 98% then the rest is smooth sailing. You're in.

    easy, quick. I had to call them to get the interview. There were two rounds of interviews. one with a regular manager then the other with a GM. From there they called me and offered me a position. Initially the first manager claimed he called me but he didn't therefore I was the one calling them for an interview

    Interview

    at outback, the process is pretty standard: you complete an online app, then do the online personality test, then wait for a call for an interview. if you don't get a phone call, then they are either not hiring or you did not pass the personality test. the best way to get noticed is to know someone who works there already

    Interview

    I sent in my application to the manager. Two weeks later I called them and asked for a status on it. They lost the application and asked for me to come in for an interview. Once I came in for the interview the proprietor came and interviewed me on the spot. He asked me to sit down and just asked what I did. Simple basic questions. I got hired on the spot.
