Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Applebee's.

Interview

I was contacted by a HR assistant after sending my resume through a job posting. She set me up with an interview at the corporate office. The interview went well and it was a very laid back general conversation about the business. She passed me along to the Area Director and I had an interview with him. It was a standard interview with all of the expected questions. The AD like ls me so I was passed on to the RJP, which stands for realistic job preview, a working interview of sorts.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Applebee's (Dallas, TX) in January 2011.

    Interview

    3 step interview process for this job. It began with a phone interview then I was asked to complete a one on one interview with the area director and the Director of Operations. Background check and personality test were required but they were not the deciding factor for the job. It was an average interview process and goes inline with all other restaurant interviews.

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Applebee's (Lewiston, ID) in July 2009.

    Interview

    talked with HR on the phone, then met with a GM at another location. Once I passed that I met with the area coach who then passed me on to the GM of the store I would be working in. Seemed to be a good process but did have some time where it seemed like it went on with no real end
