Difficult Interview

Application

I applied in-person. I interviewed at BJ's Restaurants (Elk Grove, CA) in June 2017.

Interview

it went by pretty fast, i was interviewed by sammy. He was very weird. I felt like he was putting me down in some way. Just be friendly and smile a lot, do not be too serious. you want to give off friendly vibes, do not have a complete serious face, he wants people who seem welcoming.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at BJ's Restaurants (Vienna, VA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    There was no real interview. I was asked my availability and what I'd like my hourly rate to be then hired on the spot. They were hiring all candidates on the spot without an interview because they were short staffed. Only recently have they started a 2 interview process of hiring. Once I was hired, I understood why. That place is a wreck.

    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.

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at BJ's Restaurants.

    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.
