    Server Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at BJ's Restaurants.

    Interview

    I applied and got called the next day to come in for an interview. The manager was about 20 mins late for the interview, and it appeared that one of the SA's walked out. Tables everywhere weren't clear and the employees seemed like they did not want to be there. The GM was bussing all the tables., And a server walked up to me and told me the workers there were lazy. It was honestly pretty pathetic to see and spoke volumes about how the restaurant was managed. The interview wasn't anything out of the ordinary. He just asked about my experience, availability, and he also showed me the kitchen. I was scheduled to come in for a second interview but later declined due to receiving a better job offer.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at BJ's Restaurants (Huntington Beach, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I participated in a phone interview. When I talked to the hiring manager, she appeared to be somewhat distracted by other things. She may have been driving. I just didn't get the sense that I had her full attention from the start. The questions were standard surface-level questions. I was a bit surprised by how simple they were given the nature of the position they were looking to fill. They mentioned that no has been in that position for quite sometime...so, they were still trying to work out how that role would fit in and support the organization. I didn't get a whole lot of clarity on any of the job responsibilities and expectations beyond what is written in the job description. Her answers were either vague or she said the person in the role will determine what that looks like. It was a red flag to me that the role wasn't clearly defined. Do you really need the position if it hasn't been filled in a while and you're not clear on what value that role can bring to the team?

    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.
