    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at BJ's Restaurants (Norman, OK) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Very simple. I applied online and had to fill out a personality quiz thing. I was called a few days later to set up an interview. Went in for a first round interview, and was interviewed by one of the managers. I was asked very basic questions about my work experience, if I lived close by, where I go to school, etc. I went in a few days later for my second round interview and interviewed with the GM. Not difficult at all. Was offered job that day and signed the offer letter.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at BJ's Restaurants (San Diego, CA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    It was on my laptop on line through their website after I submitted my resume. It was easy, kind of subjective and repetitive, but as long as you answered it honestly if feel as if it would weed out the type of employees they would not want to hire. I have managed in my past and I know what they are looking for. It is an initial weeding out process. It took quite a while, but it is a good way to summarize the style and type of person that is applying for the selected position.
