Server Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pearland, TX

Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Chili's Grill and Bar (Pearland, TX) in June 2016.

Interview

I arrived about 15 minutes before my interview time. They weren't busy at all but the hostess was still busy cleaning tables. However she still offered me a drink and immediately ran to go and get the manager. After finishing another interview, the manager came over apologized for the wait and I was offered another drink. Overall the interview was very short and sweet. The manager was very straightforward and immediately set me up for an interview to talk with the other manager.

    Interview

    They were incompetent and made themselves look like a very disorganized company. It may have just been a bad location and specific restraint though. This chilis was in the ghetto and there was a lot of crime nearby.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Chili's Grill and Bar.

    Interview

    Simple and straight forward. The turn over rate is very high so they are always looking. I've watched people come in in jeans, a t-shirt, and flip flops and still get hired. Doesn't take much as long as you somewhat know what you're doing.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Chili's Grill and Bar in January 2016.

    Interview

    I submitted my application online and I went in for an interview that same day, I had an interview with one manager and he ask me if I could wait until the other manager came, so I said sure. I had a second interview the same day, I dressed very appropriate black slacks, nice blouse, heels, I was even complimented on how nice I was dressed, I have four years experience as a waitress and a bartender for the same company, I had my second interview which was very very brief, I was told that orientation would be the next week and that I would get a call back, the assistant manager called me the very next day and told me that they had chosen to go a different way, I don't even know what that means or what that meant, but it was very unprofessional. I had to wait an hour and thirty minutes to talk to the gm and they just wasted my time.
