    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Applebee's.

    Interview Details

    Received a phone call around a month after applying. Consisted of 3 interviews. The entire process took over a week. I personally feel that any more than 2 is excessive considering the position and the fact that another manager was probably there each time; could've shortened the entire process.

    Slightly unprofessional in the sense that I had to wait around a while each time even though I arrived 10 minutes early. At least once I interviewed with a completely different manager than I was told on the phone or prior interview. Occurred at another location as well.

    Interview Questions
    • Run of the mill interview. The most unexpected part was they all asked me the same questions.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Under minimum wage base rate plus a tip share.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Applebee's in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied online then saw that a job fair was being held so I attended that where a group interview was held, then was called back for an individual interview. The group interview was held by the GM, who was very enthusiastic and is good at making people feel comfortable and asked questions to get to know applicants and gauge their personalities, like what's your favorite food? What do you love about this town? What would you bring to the table at Applebee's?

    The individual interview asked a few more questions about work ethic and the like, availability was reviewed, and I was hired on the spot which seems to be the general case.

    Interview Details

    I spoke to a manager about a job and he looked over my application. After he finished he gave me an interview. Afterward he asked if I could come back tomorrow and I said I could. When I did I got interviewed by the front of the house manager and then the general manager. After the interview with the general manager he asked me if I could come to work this Saturday. And that was that.
