    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at BJ's Restaurants in March 2018.

    Interview

    The interview was very quick and relaxed. Because i had no server experience besides take out they said they can put me as hostess/take out first and from there work up to server. Not many questions were asked besides that. She told me that i needed to meet with the general manager which she then set up a time and day when i could meet him/her. The interview took about 10-15 mins. She said shifts typically ranged from 3/4 shifts per week. They do an add/drop system where you can pick up shifts and drop off shifts.
