    I worked at OSI Restaurant Partners full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The environment before it changed hands was a really great place to work, very upbeat and friendly.

    Cons

    Once the change took place the atmosphere changed and it felt like you had someone behind you at all times. It was like walking on egg shells, stuffy and very negative air.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to treating employees like you want to be treated. Treat them with respect and give people a chance to advance. Don't hold them back because you don't like them and don't want them to succeed.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at OSI Restaurant Partners (Tampa, FL).

    Interview

    Like some of the other Interview reviews posted, I received no notifications or follow-up to my interview process. Nothing to notify me that I didn't get the job.

    I went in for a full day of round-robin interviews with 6 different people. Three months went by before they answered my inquiries about the position, and then they brought me in for ANOTHER full day of interviews with another 4 or 5 people. I thought it all went quite well, and I thought an offer would be forthcoming. But there was nothing.

    I knew the hiring manager wanted me for the job, so after another 2 or 3 months I finally contacted him again, and was told that the last individual I interviewed with didn't like the answer to one of my questions, so it was no deal.

    If someone has to be interviewed by a dozen people including a C-level executive, and the company doesn't let the hiring manager make the decision about who to hire, then they seem to have an issue with empowering the employees to make decisions. As someone who is used to working quickly and decisively, perhaps it's a good thing I didn't get the job.

    Interview Questions

    • Where do you see yourself in 5-10 years? Because I answered it honestly, it cost me the job.   Answer Question
