Assistant Manager Interview

Assistant Manager
Ashland, OH

I applied online and 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.

Interview Question – All general questions that you would expect for a management position. What did you like about being a manager? Tell me about a time you had to discipline. Etc.   Answer Question

Assistant Manager Interview

Assistant Manager
Ashland, KY

I applied online and 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.

Assistant Manager Interview

Assistant Manager
Lewiston, ID

The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Applebee's in July 2009.

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
