Server Interview

Anonymous Employee in Dallas, TX

Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Chili's Grill and Bar (Dallas, TX) in December 2015.

Interview

Emailed the address on the corporate website. Called by HR from the franchise office. Next day interviewed and hired on the spot. Not much asked. Interviewer seemed high. The other employees walking through seemed to have very minimal communication skills but somehow got hired in a customer service job.

    Interview

    They asked me if I had prior experience, then I spoke to another manager. I guess they liked me, because I got asked when I would next be available to train.

    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    After calling many restaurants to get an interview having already applied, Chili's had an opening. It took about 2 weeks for me to actually get the interview. First the woman said she would email me, no email, tried calling back multiple times until I reached her again, then she scheduled me the following Wednesday, after that I had to interview with the GM, that was Saturday, Then I waited for a call on Monday at 5 for the decision. I was hired. Though any time that I was told I would get an email, call, or follow up...I never got it and had to make the call. Oh well, its certainly worth it

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Chili's Grill and Bar.

    Interview

    The whole process was fairly easy. The personal assessment took longer than I would've liked, but it is necessary to get hired. I applied in person, waited for a call to get interviewed, had a brief interview with manager on duty, got offered job on spot, accepted job, and started training within days. The training process lasts about a week. Basic learning and testing of knowledge learned from each day.

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Chili's Grill and Bar.

    Interview

    Very relaxed, best to know information about up-selling and sales. Not anything serious a high school graduate with a bit of common sense could get this job. Must be quick on your feet, must be able to retain a plethora of information

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Chili's Grill and Bar (Atlanta, GA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Put in an online application, three days later received an email asking to schedule an interview. I wore a shirt and tie and interviewed with the FOH manager. Easy and relaxed interview. (I lied and told them I had serving experience). He asked about working as a team, my serving "experience", and my hobbies and interests. Then I was called later that evening to set up an interview with the general manager.

    2nd interview with the general manager was nothing but a conversation about what job entails and the things he expects. He only asked one interview-type question. 2nd interview felt like a formality. I believe they already wanted me as a new hire after I interviewed with the FOH manager, as he would be the main one the servers and hosts deal with.
