    Server Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Tucson, AZ

    Positive Experience
    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.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at BJ's Restaurants (Stockton, CA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Went in 3 different times for interviews with 3 different managers. All asked very basic questions. No interview lasted more than 3 minutes. First time was with a very low scale manager, he basically sat and got to know my personality, which is happy and bright. Second interview was with a higher manager, he asked about my work ethic and how I could thrive here and he asked why I left my old job. Straight forward questions. He told me I would be passed along to be interviewed by the hiring manager. When I went in for that interview, she sat with me for maybe 30 seconds and told me I was hired and to come back in another week for orientation. No questions asked.

    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.
