Dishwasher Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Chili's Grill and Bar (Flowery Branch, GA) in August 2017.

Interview

After about a week i get a call to schedule an interview for the following week. First interview went normally, i was told to meet the general manager for an interview 2 days later. I show up and she is not there so i talk with a different manager who does a mini interview with me and tells me to come around the same time the next day. I show up and she isn't there again because she had to run some errands in which she forgot about the interview. i end up waiting for a little more than an hour until she comes back and finally do the interview. I got a rejection email later that day. Very disappointed with how unprofessional the experience was and i now know better than to be kept waiting so long. It's a shame considering the people were so friendly and apologetic about the situation.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Chili's Grill and Bar (Glendale, AZ) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and followed up with a phone call within 24hrs and was told I would receive a call back. I waited about 48hrs without response so I called again and was given a distinct impression this job was unavailable to me. I may have made 3 calls, actually. So - realizing being 21 without job history, with a GED, could reflect poorly, I decided to walk-in personally. Quickly, I was given ice water then met with a manager who told me the man I needed to speak to was gravely busy. She offered a good time to return and/or a phone call back. I insisted I could wait if possible. So, I waited patiently for two hours. Upon the initial introduction it was clear the hiring manager was underwater at the time and I felt like a pest. To my surprise, after a brief Q&A he invited me to sit for an on-the-spot interview! About 20 minutes later I was told I may receive a phone call, no promises and left. Later that week I got an email that confirmed I was extended the job. This entire process took only 6 days. After a few official online form submissions, I was set up for the orientation. That is two hours of PAID pre-training. You complete an I-9, then go meet with the other new people in the dining area and chill for a bit. Then the manager appears to get started. Next, you get to order free lunch. In the time it takes to hit the table you fill out a form and get the Chili's history. About the time that's over, food arrives and you listen to the company values, mission statement, goals, etc as you eat. Then when the tables clears you engage in a quite entertaining, very informative, hour long rules & regulations/expectations booklet. After completing a group test and clocking out with your fancy new card, you head back out the door and wait for your schedule to be posted online! A simple, classy, laid-back, nerve settling process dubbed; "orientation". I loved it.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Chili's Grill and Bar (Wilmington, DE) in August 2014.

    Interview

    I completed the application online and got a call 2 days later for an interview. I was 5th out of 8 people interviewed that day, with 2 more they were interviewing the following day (what I was told). The interview was easy, but unorganized. I was told they were also hiring for Servers, cooks and bussers and all applicants would be considered for all positions. I was also told I should be updated on the hiring process by the end of the week.

    I was never updated, as promised, even when I gave them my email and phone number on 3 seperate occasions following the interview within a 3 week span to check on the hiring process. They told me they were still interviewing applicants 2 weeks after mine.

    This company should have been more professional and organized in their hiring process. Even though I have accepted a job offer elsewhere, I still have not received an update from Chili's, a month later, lol. That explains why the manager stated they have had several employees leave a few days after starting, lol.

    Interview

    Filled out application online, next day got email for interview. Went in on Monday to talk to back of house manager. He was a real funny guy and I was instantly relaxed. He asked pretty simple questions like why would I want to work for Chili's, why would I want to work back of house than front of house, etc. He smiled at my responses and told me my next interview was in two days. Went in and signed papers and set up my schedule.

    Interview

    my sister worked there for 2 years. gave in a good word when the position opened. told me to call hiring manager. he asked about work experience and availability and set up an interview next day with the head of the kitchen operations. went in, waited for 10 minutes, he came out. very laid back and casual. asked pretty much same questions as well as how long i expected to stay (he even said he understands chilis isn't one of someone's life career), and just stressed the fast paced, active duties. asked if i could start training tomorrow

    sat at the table in restaurant i was not asked that many questions. I seemed to have over dressed by simply wearing a polo pullover for applying to a dishwashers job. I was greated with open arms as they were in desperate need of a dishwasher.
