The Outback Steakhouse Application Process

The Outback Steakhouse application is one of the most user-friendly applications you'll find in the restaurant industry. The application very much resembles a traditional paper application. It's only one page long, and asks for only the most basic information from you. If you take the time to prepare all of the information you will need beforehand, it should take you less than 20 minutes to complete.

Before you can apply for a job at Outback Steakhouse, you will need to create an account on their hiring site. Creating an account is simple, and will only take a minute of your time. To register, you will only need to provide your name, email address, and the last four digits of your social security number.

After you create your account, Outback will provide you with a unique password that you can use to resume your application later on if you are interrupted during the process. This is a great feature, and something that we hope more companies start to implement in the future.

With your account created, it's time to start the application itself. You will need to provide your name, address, phone number, email address, the position you're applying for, salary expectations, hours desired, scheduling preferences, education, at least two references, and employment history.

During the application process, you will also have the opportunity to upload your resume. Uploading your resume is not required, but we highly recommend that you take advantage of the opportunity if you already have a resume prepared. It can be really hard to stand out through a standardized job application, and your resume is your chance to show Outback exactly how your previous experiences have prepared you for the position you're applying for.

Once you upload your resume, your application is complete. Make sure that you check it for accuracy before you submit it.

Background check

By submitting your application to Outback Steakhouse, you are consenting to a pre-employment background check. Any employment offer that you receive will be contingent upon passing the background check.
