    Server/Waitress Interview

    Positive Experience
    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

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Palmdale, CA

    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.

    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.

    Dishwasher Interview

    Negative Experience
    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.
