    I worked at BJ's Restaurants full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good management and incentives for employees. Easy to manage your hours and schedule online. You're allowed to swap and change shifts easily.

    Cons

    The pay is minimum wage, so you basically have to rely on your tips to pay the bills. A bit difficult to move up to bar tending, as the wait list is long.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the incentives - they make servers work harder. Maybe make training more rewarding that way servers will be more keen to do so.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at BJ's Restaurants.

    Interview

    Easy. Typical questions. Sit down in restaurant with general manager. Less than an hour. If you aren't a dummy, you'll probably get the job. I did wait over an hour to talk to someone though.
