Application Details

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

Interview Details

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.

    Group Interview. It was fun and a good way to show off if your sharp and carry yourself well. They started as a group and asked group questions. After that they sent some of the people home and did one on ones with the candidates and a GM. After that they did one on ones with the candidates and the District Managers. It was about a 2 hour process

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Applebee's in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied online. Was called a few days later for an interview. The interview seemed to go great. The woman told me they did 3 interviews and then have candidates come in for an hour or two to walk the floor, talk to employees and guests. The woman called the person above her to schedule me for a 2nd interview, but the person didn't answer, so she left a message and told me she would contact me when the person called back....Well, she never called. I emailed her a week later to ask for an update or feedback and never heard back. Very unprofessional and changed my opinion of the company.

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Applebee's in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview took approximately 2 hours on the first day. It consisted of a 1:1 in person interview, followed by an assessment test which took approximately 90 minutes. The test was standardized and covered problem solving, math, personality profiling, and simple decision making. The second interview took about 40 minutes and was simply a rehash of the first interview.

    Interview Details

    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
