Server Interview

Anonymous Employee in Tucson, AZ
Accepted Offer
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.

    I applied online on the company's website. It took about a week and I got a phone call to go for an interview. The questions were basic server questions like: What do you know about BJ?

    Very Relaxed, interviewed with the GM (Best part about working there, he is very professional and always looks out for his employees). The interview was very relaxed, in person, basically just went over why I am applying for the position and for how long do I plan to stay.

    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!

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at BJ's Restaurants (Lexington-Fayette, KY) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Filled out application online and was quickly called in for an interview. I first interviewed with Kevin and he was awesome. We just hit it off and was quickly moved to the next round of interviews. Next I interviewed with General Manager Luke. He was also a nice guy, very chill. He had some harder questions for me and really seemed interested in what I had to say. I was very impressed with both managers that I had contact with in these two interviews. After my interview with Luke I was promptly offered a position in the new Lexington store.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at BJ's Restaurants (Reno, NV) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online and then they called me for an interview. I then had two interviews with two different managers and when I met with the general manager they offered me the job. However, they couldn't find my online application and told me they would look into it. They never got back to me and even after calling back to check with them they never gave me a response. So after offering me the job they didn't hire me because they couldn't find my online applicaiton
