    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at BJ's Restaurants.

    Interview

    I applied and got called the next day to come in for an interview. The manager was about 20 mins late for the interview, and it appeared that one of the SA's walked out. Tables everywhere weren't clear and the employees seemed like they did not want to be there. The GM was bussing all the tables., And a server walked up to me and told me the workers there were lazy. It was honestly pretty pathetic to see and spoke volumes about how the restaurant was managed. The interview wasn't anything out of the ordinary. He just asked about my experience, availability, and he also showed me the kitchen. I was scheduled to come in for a second interview but later declined due to receiving a better job offer.
