    Hostess Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Hadley, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Chili's Grill and Bar (Arlington, TX) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and got an email about a week later telling me to schedule an interview. I arrived to interview 10 mins and was seen immediately. The whole interview lasted only about 2 minutes really. It was so quick, I thought I wasn't going to get the job. But the manager who interviewed me was very nice and all my nerves went away as soon as we started talking because of how friendly she was! I didn't get any situational questions like "what would you do if..." So it was a very easy interview. She told me she had a couple more interviews to go through and then to watch out for an email saying if I got the job or not. I received the email a little less than a week later that said I did!

    Server/Waiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Chili's Grill and Bar (New York, NY) in May 2016.

    Interview

    The manager was extremely rude and combative. I applied because I was looking for second job. The manager was clearly upset and did not understand why I did not want my current full time job contacted. He said if I wouldn't let him contact my current employer he was unable to take the interview any further even though I had given him other references. He was rude, arrogant and trying to bully me into letting him call my current place of employment.
