    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Uncle Julio's Hacienda (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    I had a phone interview on Friday, June 30th, 2017. with Shelley McMurray from HR. I was told it would be about a week after that I would hear anything due to the holiday. I sent a follow-up email asking where I stood at that point on Friday July 14th and she said that she wanted to do a phone interview at 11:00 AM. So here I am thinking a 2nd interview. Well she called and when I made her aware of this being a 2nd interview she was so confused and embarrassed. She said she didn't have anything from our 1st interview; no notes, nothing. At 4:50 PM I received an email from her saying that they were going with another candidate. Is this an example on how this company functions??? If so, that is pretty darn sad!!!!! This has got to be the worst interview I have ever had. What a poor example of a company and how they treat people and operate!!!!!!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Uncle Julio's Hacienda (Kildeer, IL) in June 2017.

    Interview

    They called me the day after I submitted my application to set up an interview for the next day. I showed up to the interview and the general manager basically told me they didn't need me because they had enough summer help already so don't hold my breath and wait by the phone. I got an email the next day saying my application was declined. I am very confused why they even called me in for an interview if they knew they didn't want to hire me.

    Busser Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Uncle Julio's Hacienda (Woodbridge, VA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    After applying online, I got a call a day later and set up an interview for the next day. The day of the interview they had me sit in an uncrowded area of the restaurant and I was offered water. Then the first manager came out to talk to me. He asked me what I knew about the company. When I said I applied to be a busser he looked at me and said I wouldn't want to be a busser. I told him I'd be willing to be a busser, dishwasher, or server (because I like to actually work at work). He suggested that I could be a hostess and I said I'd be willing to do that too. I then had a second interview with a different manager who mainly focused on my past work experience. He really didn't like that I didn't have any past restaurant experience. At the end of the interview he told me they have other interviews to do and will call me within 24 hours if I'm hired.
    It was no surprise to me that I didn't get the job. I just don't understand why they brought me in for an interview in the first place if they didn't think my application was a good fit for the position.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Uncle Julio's Hacienda (Fort Worth, TX).

    Interview

    First manager I spoke with was very courteous and positive. Set up a 2nd interview with the GM for 3 days later. When I showed up I was kept waiting for 20 mins. She finally called me over but didn't have my application and didn't know who I was. She was very uninterested and almost rude. These managers need better communication apparently.
