    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Couldn't interview in the afternoon because of my current job commitment. Met the manager at opening. He was more interested in what was going on in the restaurant, he kept getting up to resolve issues with the staff. If he wasn't going to have the time to do a proper interview he should never have called me in. When he asked a question, i felt like his attention was more on the restaurant than what i was saying.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Chili's Grill and Bar (Denham Springs, LA) in May 2011.

    Interview

    I am attending the Louisiana Culinary Institute this Fall and needed some experience in the food industry, so I drove to the Chili's around the corner from my house. Luckily, they just so happened to be looking for cooks. Mind you, I have no previous experience in a professional kitchen. I walked in, applied, and asked to submit my application in person (always a good move). She sat me down and briefly read through my application, asking a few questions here and there and told me to come back in a few days, so I did. When I came back, the manager who was going to interview me told me to come back for testing a few days later. When I came back for testing he brought me over to a table with a few scales, some dry rice, dry pasta, a glass of water, and some empty ziploc bags. The test had two parts: the first was to read a recipe and do some basic conversions (there was a conversion chart on the recipe page, but it is always better to impress them by knowing the conversions by heart), and the second portion used the scales to measure out some of the dry ingredients and portion them into the bags. I recommend staying cool and not worrying about the clock. Focus, instead, on accuracy and cleanliness. He brought me to the front of the store while he graded my test, came back and hired me on the spot making $10/hr. working Salad/Nacho. Five days of paid training are included.

    • What position are you applying for?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I didn't have to negotiate much. The pay was right for me, and I got the position I applied for. I asked that accommodations be made for my school schedule in the Fall, and the manager obliged.
