Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Chili's Grill and Bar (Oxnard, CA) in July 2016.

Interview

Quick process. They ask you questions and rate you on how good they liked your answers. The managers are pretty up front about what they want. They describe the job pretty thoroughly and make sure you know just what you're getting into.

    Interview

    Met with an assistant manager first and asked very generic questions. My next interview was with the General manager and these questions were more based on personality. They got back to me very quickly. After the second interview I was scheduled to go to orientation within a week of being hired.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Chili's Grill and Bar (Stockton, CA).

    Interview

    Everything is online, the managers won't usually take in person resumes or anything mainly because there is a personality/situational test during your online application which will tell them if you are a potential candidate. If you pass the test you'll get an email asking you to choose an interview date best for you. I came in, talked with the GM, the host position is pretty easy to get into. He didn't ask many questions, mainly conversated. I am currently a server now after a year working with them.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Chili's Grill and Bar.

    Interview

    Asked like five questions automatically got the job. The manager did not remember my name or anything that I had told him. I had to repeat myself over about three of four times when he asked me if I currently work or go to school and if I lived near the location and he didn't write anything down. (Stay away from chilis they are so unprepared and made me wait longer than need over my interview start time)

    Interview

    They contact you by email which is a little strange. Questions are super easy, I did have to wait a while in the middle of the interview while the manager had to deal with something. I got hired on the spot.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Chili's Grill and Bar (Marble Falls, TX) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Very simple interview. Scheduled during a lunch rush, so I had to wait a long time for the manager. He was much more concerned about the amount of time I would be home for the summer than my qualifications even after I specified very clearly I would be working only for the summer at the start of the interview. Seemed disorganized.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Chili's Grill and Bar (Tulsa, OK) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Was interviewed by two managers. GM and Maybe the front of house manager? Both were very nice and seemed to love their jobs. Asked about my work experience but more of what I was looking for in an employer which I thought was interesting. It was almost as if we were just getting to know each other, like they were determining if I would get along with the crew rather then if I could perform the duties in the Job description. Very laid back and easy going.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Chili's Grill and Bar.

    Interview

    There was one interview and it was in person. There were no hard questions asked (e.g. no behavioral ones). It was just a run-down of your resume basically. If you can hold a conversation with someone in an interview style format, you can make it through this interview. Nothing difficult about it at all.

    Negotiation

    No negotiation but my co-worker did and got a higher starting pay than I did.
