    Interviewed on the spot by one manager. At the end of the interview, he wanted me to meet with the other manager/proprietor. Got called back from the proprietor to meet with manager.

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Outback Steakhouse (Bowie, MD) in August 2009.

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly easy. I sat down with the proprietor in a booth and we discussed my prior experience and he asked me a lot of questions about what would make me valuable to the company. He also asked me how long I planned on staying with the company and stated that if I stayed with the company 1 year I would be eligible for a location transfer. I also took a standardized test that had me rate different situations and how I would react and well as some simple math and reading questions.

    Waitstaff Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Memphis, TN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Outback Steakhouse (Memphis, TN) in May 2008.

    Interview

    I walked in to the restaurant, asked if they were accepting applications, and was hired on the spot. I had to take a personality test, which asked common sense questions and was extremely easy. The second portion consisted of a math test; again very easy. Lastly, I had to take a menu test. While it wasn't hard, it was a lot of information to memorize. I'd say I spent about an hour or two studying for it, so be prepared for it.
