    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at BJ's Restaurants (Tucson, AZ).

    Interview

    Very professional and courteous. Very up front about job expectations. The manager was very personable and made me feel comfortable. She was light hearted and not too intimidating. It made me feel good about where I was applying and what her managing style would be like. Being comfortable and layed back helped enormously so I wasn't stuttering and nervous.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at BJ's Restaurants.

    Interview

    I applied online and called the restaurant a week later asking for the status of my application. The next day I was granted an interview for the following Monday with the general manager at 2PM. When I arrived, the restaurant was surprisingly busy for a Monday because there were a lot of graduations going on so I had to wait about 15-30 minutes before my interview started. The interview was very easy going and didn't take too long. The manager asked me very standard questions and said she definitely wanted me on the team but wasn't sure how she was going to fit me in the schedule just yet. Two days later I called and was officially offered the hostess position and gave my SSN. Orientation and training was the next week, which was all paid.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at BJ's Restaurants.

    Interview

    I applied online for a server position, called them back a couple of days later and was asked to come in the next day for an interview. It was the best interview ever however instead of getting the server job I was offered the hostess position which was fine because I really needed a job. The manager was so nice, the interview was basically to get to know my personality more and schedule availability. The interview lasted about 30 minutes and I was told to wait until Monday for a response (the interview was on wednesday). I got a response on Sunday saying I was hired, I gave the manager my SSN to be put in the system, she told me I had orientation Wednesday at 8:30am. Orientation was paid, I was there for about 3 hours, was taught how to clock in and out, it was A LOT of computer stuff to get you to know all about BJ's. Then I was asked to come in for hostess training for the next four days!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at BJ's Restaurants (San Bruno, CA).

    Interview

    Had 2 interviews on 2 separate days. One was with a manager and the other was with the General manager. After arriving, the wait for the interview can be long. I came during a slow time, so they were able to see me within a few minutes. I have heard that some wait for almost an hour for a manager to see them. The interview for me only took about 30 minutes because I was referred by a current employee at the time and was very casual.
