    Senior Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at OSI Restaurant Partners.

    Interview Details

    Like some of the other Interview reviews posted, I received no notifications or follow-up to my interview process. Nothing to notify me that I didn't get the job.

    I went in for a full day of round-robin interviews with 6 different people. Three months went by before they answered my inquiries about the position, and then they brought me in for ANOTHER full day of interviews with another 4 or 5 people. I thought it all went quite well, and I thought an offer would be forthcoming. But there was nothing.

    I knew the hiring manager wanted me for the job, so after another 2 or 3 months I finally contacted him again, and was told that the last individual I interviewed with didn't like the answer to one of my questions, so it was no deal.

    If someone has to be interviewed by a dozen people including a C-level executive, and the company doesn't let the hiring manager make the decision about who to hire, then they seem to have an issue with empowering the employees to make decisions. As someone who is used to working quickly and decisively, perhaps it's a good thing I didn't get the job.
