    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at Chili's Grill and Bar (Milwaukee, WI) in February 2012.


    It was very relaxing because I had already worked for the company for 8 years as a server and bartender. There were 3 people conducting the actual interview. The first step was taking a personality and skills test.
