Hostess Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Clearwater, FL
No Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Chili's Grill and Bar (Clearwater, FL) in May 2017.

Interview

I applied online. I got an email a few days later giving me the option to schedule an interview. I scheduled an interview and went in and the manager was really nice and only asked me about my availability and experience and told me a lot about the job and said I would come in for a second interview to be asked more questions. He said he would call me after his shift the next day to schedule it. I saw on this site that most people had to wait a while for a second interview, so I wasn't really worried about it when he didn't call I figured he was busy and would schedule it in a few days. A week went by and he still didn't call to let me know when to come in so I called them and asked if he had any updates on when it may be. The employee took my name down and said he would ask them when they came in for their shift and get back to me. It has been a few days with no contact so I am not really expecting them to call me and I don't really mind because what happens happens but I just wish the manager would have been more professional and not told me he was going to schedule a second interview for me and then not follow through. I figure if the manager acts this unprofessional I'm better off not working for them anyways.

    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.

    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.

    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.
