Application

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Chili's Grill and Bar in December 2016.

Interview

The phone interview was about an hour long. The interviewer was very nice and made me feel comfortable. I feel it went well. The interview ended with me not knowing if I got the job or not. I wish I knew a little more but overall a very good experience.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Chili's Grill and Bar (Columbus, MS).

    Interview

    Was called by their head hunter, asked a few general questions, then directed to take a two hour survey/psychological profile. Very big company like with no real interest in what I could do for them. It's like they're screening and expecting everyone who applies to be a loser. The test itself was also a complete waste of time and maddening for anyone who has never had advanced business calculus.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Chili's Grill and Bar.

    Interview

    I applied to the position twice. Once through their website and again through craig's list. The craig's list account was the one that got me the interview. It was a semi casual interview in the dining room of one of the restaurants. Everyone was prompt and professional. They talk alot about their culture, and how important finding the right person for the job. They were very out going and talkative. Conversation flowed easily from question to question. They truly want to get to know you as a person, not just what you can bring to the team, but really making sure the fit is right.

    Interview Questions

    • The "Tell me a time when" questions are always the hardest. They wanted to know a time when I failed at work, how I handled it and what I leared from the experience.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Chili's gave me a generous offer right out of college and there was not much negotiation. They asked me what I wanted to make and they gave me it.

    Interview

    process was drawn out, verification is a joke, they didn't check anything at all, so heads up if ya got felonies, this is your shot!

    Negotiation

    it was BS, they stated a range of mid to upper 40's then offered 45...with over 8 years of experience and 2 degrees... I asked for more, they gave me a grand.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Chili's Grill and Bar.

    Interview

    The hiring was like a cattle call, well over 50 managers herded into a small room for further interviews. Area director was very unorganized, and seemed pretty much disinterested in even being there. When moved to second interview it was short and sweet and left you hanging. Follow up phone calls where left messages went unanswered

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Chili's Grill and Bar (Dallas, TX) in February 2008.

    Interview

    Interviewed first with recruiter on the phone, then she called me in and interviewed me in the office. She then had an area director contacted me and we met at a local chilis. He spoke more about chilis then we did about myself. My advice is to look on the website and read the description of the job positions they are looking to fill. There are key words (hospitality, culture) that will score you bonus points. Do research on the company's global growth and recent business changes.
