Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Chili's Grill and Bar in March 2015.

Interview

I put in an app for host and server positions. Heard back about a month later by email to schedule an interview for a server position. The scheduling was done online on the website no contact with anyone from the restaurant itself.

I arrived at the interview early and the manager was busy and had asked me to come back later. So again I arrive to my interview about 10 minutes early. I sit at a table waiting he was late when he finally arrive he asked me to tell him about myself and my experience. Before I could finish the question he noticed on my resume its been a few years since I worked in a restaurant and that he needs someone with previous experience. He would not even give me a chance to proceed with the question or the interview.

I feel that doing everything electronic for this company is not efficient there's no contact someone saw my application as a good fit and but who? If the actual interviewed were able to review the apps we could have avoided existing both out time. I feel that it wasn't fair that I didn't get a chance to show what I had to offer and that I do have the experience needed.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Chili's Grill and Bar (Boca Raton, FL) in February 2014.

    Interview

    You interview with a floor manager first and then the General Manager will interview you in a quiet part of the restaurant. Expect them to be in a hurry, but they are looking to hire you and so basically the interview is their way of making sure you're a normal human being who won't scare the children. You'll have to pass the menu test when you come back for your last interview. Word of advice: know the menu backwards and forwards. The manager will pick random items and have you name every single ingredient, and you have to get them all.
