    Interview

    Less then 10 minutes. You go in for your first interview and if they like you, you will go for your second interview. They really want to see your personality so don't over do it but also you can't be shy or timid. The first manager was funny while the second manager was very serious.

    Interview

    I applied online and the next day got a call to set up an interview for two days later. I was interviewed by an assistant manager who was very nonchalant and relaxed, he asked about the hours I would be able to work and my previous work experience. The interview lasted about five minutes and then he set me up for a second interview for the following day. In the second interview I was interviewed by the manager who was very nice and also relaxed. The interview also lasted about five minutes and he just asked questions about my personality. I was hired on the spot and asked to come in the following day to fill out paperwork.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at BJ's Restaurants (Los Angeles, CA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was 3 days long in one week. Each interview was about 15 minutes long. It was clear that if you advance to the next interview, the manager liked you. And you weren't hire on the spot after the third interview. You had to wait to call you the next day to see if they wanted you.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at BJ's Restaurants in December 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online and about 3 weeks later I got a call back for an interview a few days later. Got there and I had to wait 20 minutes until the manager (was a completely different one from the one I spoke to on the phone) finally came over and brought me to a booth. Its not like they were that busy and they had plenty of people working, so I don't know what the holdup was. The interview lasted less than five minutes and I could barely understand what he was saying. He said that if they're going to hire me they'll call me the next day and if they don't then I didn't get the job. Never got called back, the least they could do though was just tell me right there that they weren't going to hire me.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at BJ's Restaurants (Denton, TX) in August 2014.

    Interview

    The environment for this interview was very nice, it was just the person I was being interviewed by. Yes, it was my first interview, but i was't even given a chance. He acted like I was wasting his time and didn't really have any kind of interest in interviewing me, or anyone else for that matter. I was interviewed by one of the chefs, I'm assuming because of his chef jacket, which was a little odd to me. None-the-less, within 5 minutes he pretty much told they weren't going to hire me.
