    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Chili's Grill and Bar.


    I just came and asked for the manager. They told me to wait for him to come out and speak with me. It’s really important to not be on your phone during this time. Spend it perhaps taking in the atmosphere. I’ve seen someone get rejected from being interviewed because when the manager came out they didn’t even notice he was there.
