    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at O'Charley's.

    Interview

    Seven years ago, we applied in person, which gave us the opportunity to make a great first impression. After filling out the application, it was brought to the manager on duty, who came out after a few minutes to talk to me. We talked for approximately 30 minutes, him asking about prior work experience and my employment expectations. He also gave me the opportunity to ask questions as well. After the interview, he told me that he'd call me by the next afternoon as to whether I was hired - he wanted to give the other managers the chance to review applications as well. The next morning he called and asked me to come in and fill out paperwork, and he gave me my training schedule.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at O'Charley's (Holly Springs, NC) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I filled out an application online and got a call the next day to come in and interview. The man was so nice and it was very easy and laid back. He asked me to come in the next day and interview with the General Manager for a final decision. I came in the next day and the GM was very nice as well. He offered me a job on the spot and sent me the link to my paperwork that night. I completed it right then and orientation was set up for the next day. So from the time I applied until the time I started orienting was a matter of 3 days in between.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at O'Charley's (Jonesboro, AR).

    Interview

    Online application was similar to most applications done for this job field. Received phone call the next day. No message left, and would have never known if I hadn't looked up the number for the missed call. Very short notice of a hour for the interview start time. Interview was over in 10 minutes.

    Interview

    David the manager is a pretty cool boss. There was absoulutely no pressure when I went in for the interview. The environment and people are accepting. They teach you training a week after your interview giving you plenty of time to situate yourself and prepare for work.

    Restaurant Manager Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at O'Charley's (Winder, GA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    1st interview was a Skype interview with the recruiter. I thought it went so great. Then 2nd interview with area director went equally as good 40min drive from home. 3rd interview was more of a Q&A with training GM as he showed me around his
    Restaurant (also 40 mins from
    home). I was sure I had the job but on day 8 of Their "12 hiring process" received an email stating they went with another applicant. Just think that's a lot of trouble for a potential candidate that doesn't even get the job. Cut the chord after the 2nd interview, respect the applicants time.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at O'Charley's.

    Interview

    Interview with two managers, the hiring manager and the bar manager (even if you're not working at the bar) and the hiring manager will ask you most of the questions and give majority of the interview. It is mainly up to the hiring manager whether or not you get the job or not. The bar manager just interviews you so that the hiring manager can get a second opinion.
