    I applied online. I interviewed at Chili's Grill and Bar (Wayne, PA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Quick interview with the assistant manager and then a second interview with the manager Yancey. They were both super nice and the interviews went quick. It was more of a general conversation about experience more than listing a bunch of questions that I needed to answer. Loved it there!

    Hostess Interview

    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.

    Server Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    It was a total waste of time. I went in for 3 interviews. After each interview, I was complimented for my personality, engagement, and answers to the interview questions, and was then told to come back in to interview with the restaurant manager. There was a lack of communication between managers because each time I went back, the manager was not there and in result, I ended up interviewing with more assistant managers. I was told I would be contacted about how they would like to proceed and still have not heard anything back. I was even complimented by the fact that i'd successful gone through 3 interviews so I'd been doing something right. If they did not have interest in bringing more talent to the team, they should not have had me coming to the restaurant multiple times. Management should communicate better.
