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

    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.

    Everything went perfect. First took the assessment test, then had the phone interview, then had the face to face interview with the Director of Mohawk Valley and that went awesome, set up a week later for a shift shadow walk through, which I was there for 6 hours and was so impressed with how well the location was managed, and was told I would get a call from HR for an offer. Still waiting for the call. (2 weeks)
