    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Chili's Grill and Bar (Tampa, FL) in February 2014.

    Interview

    It was very relaxed. I was asked about my experience. NOTE TO NEW SERVERS: they care more about attitude than experience. You can train someone with no experience. Attitude is everything! I previously worked for Chili's, so I was asked about why I left. I was asked about my availability (be as flexible as possible - get hired first, adjust your availability later).

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Chili's Grill and Bar in November 2013.

    Interview

    Very quick and informal, met with one of the managers who made me feel very comfortable. Was up front about the store needs and interested in my skills and history as a customer. Left feeling good about getting the job. Was training within 3 days and working my own section assignments within a week of that.

    Interview Questions

    • None per say, just asked about my opinion on good customer service and about my availability. We spent most of the time talking about their expectations of me, which were reasonable.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I told them up front my needs as far as how many shifts I needed to work to make the tips I wanted and they let me know the most profitable shifts up front. All they asked in return was to be reliable and consistent and I would have priority in choosing shifts over less skilled or available people. Since then I have pretty consistently made my tip goals and only had sporadic conflicts in scheduling and work assignments.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Chili's Grill and Bar (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    Hiring is done entirely online, which is frustrating for people who are lacking in experience but make up for it in personality. Our managers refuse to speak to drop ins or people who are following up after submitting their applications. You must pass a multiple choice personality/intelligence test before you are hired.
    I was hired before the online hiring began. I walked in and was hired the same day.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions are all fairly standard for a restaurant position.   Answer Question
