    Host/Hostess Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Chili's Grill and Bar.

    Interview

    I just came and asked for the manager. They told me to wait for him to come out and speak with me. It’s really important to not be on your phone during this time. Spend it perhaps taking in the atmosphere. I’ve seen someone get rejected from being interviewed because when the manager came out they didn’t even notice he was there.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Chili's Grill and Bar (West Nyack, NY) in January 2018.

    Interview

    I applied online, (West Nyack, NY). I didn't get a call for a good week and a half. The girl who called left the wrong phone number to call back on. When I eventually interviewed, with the manager, she was irritated that I had a second job but said I would get a call whether I got the job or not. It's 3 weeks later and I still haven't gotten a call.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Chili's Grill and Bar (Harvey, LA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online and got an email immediately prompting me to setup an interview. Set it for Tuesday (today). I went in and got seated in an empty section and was told to wait for the manager. It was really laid back and it was mostly going over my previous experience and explaining what they’re looking for. Afterwards, he said the front end manager should be coming in shortly and that I could wait for him to get in. Less than 5 minutes I had the second interview which was the same thing... telling me what to expect and answering questions I had. In the end he said they have a thing they call “Let’s Do Lunch” where it’s kind of like orientation I assume and scheduled that. Very excited.

    Server Interview

    Average Interview

    Interview

    Applied online because the local Chilis has been advertising frequently on indeed.com. I went in to the restaurant after applying online and they said they weren't hiring. A new post was on indeed literally an hour before I went in. I've seen this a lot in my job search. A lot of companies have recurring hiring ads on popular job search websites and it's totally unfair. We spend a lot of time on these applications and questionnaires only to find out they're not even hiring. It would be great if management could keep on top of their advertising and stop waisting our time.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Chili's Grill and Bar (Pitts, PA).

    Interview

    Personality tests, Aptitude tests, phone interviews, live walk thru, 1 on 1 interview than an offer. Whole process takes a few weeks. They wouldn't hire just anyone. I appreciate the selectivity.
