    Interview

    They brought me in, asked me about previous jobs, how long I wanted to work there, what my strengths were, and how I did with customer service. Just a basic interview. Nothing special or fancy. Then I had to fill out paperwork. I was basically hired on the spot.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Chili's Grill and Bar (Foothill Ranch, CA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Fairly easy, asked me a lot of personal questions and questions about school since I am in high school. I did not get the job, but I did get more interview experience. The manager was very nice, but was about 15 minutes late to the interview and seemed rushed.

    Hostess Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Chili's Grill and Bar (Hadley, MA).

    Interview

    Why they should hire you, experience, why you want the job. After that they go over financial stuff and tax info. It went this way for my anyway, I kind of got hired on the spot. My friend referred me and I started from the bottom as a host. Since then I became a very experienced bartender, but you have to work your way up. Work hard and they'll give you the position you want, except for management.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Chili's Grill and Bar (Shawnee, KS) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Interview was extremely easy, mostly filling out paper work. Two managers assess you separately. All that happens is they ask you a couple questions. Then you must work two shifts as a trainee which basically is you following another person around for the shift.

    Fairly simple interview, but it took a very long time. My interview lasted about 45 minutes and two managers came to interview me. One interviewer was very nice and tried to make me feel comfortable, while the other was more intense and asked the harder questions.

    Interview

    I interviewed w/ Samantha, she was alright, did not ask a lot of questions, it felt like she judged me based off looks rather than work related questions, she also kept messing with her papers like if she wasn't interested, I realized that their restaurant is very lonely and hardly any business so I'm glad I didn't get hired

    Really easy. The GM basically asked a couple questions, asked about my previous job experience, talked about himself and the company. I almost thought that I didn't get the job because the interview was so fast, but I got an email the next day saying that I was hired.

    The manger seemed bored from the beginning of the interview to the end. He seemed like he wanted the interview to be over as quickly as possible. A week later, he called me and had said that the position I applied for has been filled already. The questions he asked were really straightforward and easy.
