    I applied online. It was a very easy process which I appreciated because this was my first job. Questions were fairly easy. I was very worried going into this interview but the interviewer was very nice. This was probably one of the most comfortable interviews I've been to. Good much if you have an interview coming up!

    easy, two interviews 1st is asking questions second basically tells you if you're hired or not. They'll ask you the basic interview questions, my manager wasn't very intimidating. He was nice, but they'll ask you how you handle customers, your experience, how you've handled a difficult situation.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Applebee's in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    After filling out the application online, I was called for an interview after a couple days. The person that interviewed me was asking questions from a couple pages that had boxes to fill in. The questions I was asked were the same questions but asked in different ways which got annoying and the other questions were random questions. I didn't get any reactions when i answered the questions so I knew from the start I wasn't going to be called back.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and 2 weeks later I got an email to come in for an interview. I called the next day but she was off for the next 2 days, so I called after that. She had me come in a week later. She asked me basic questions and then offered me a position. I originally applied for Curbside To Go Specialist but she said that they don't usually start people at that position but I was fine with the offered position because I really needed a job.
