I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Applebee's in February 2014.
Interview Details – Well I applied on February 24th (my 18th birthday) at midnight, and the next day I got a call about an interview from the general manager, and we set it up for 2 weeks on saturday at 11 am, the following day around 1.45 pm, I got a call from another manager asking if I was 18, and if so, would I be willing to come in for an interview that day, of coarse I said yes. So I went in about 10 minutes early and the Servers assistant sat me in a booth in the back corner and a lower manager came out and asked me if I knew a person from my current work, then we talked about him for a minute, then we got right into the questions. The questions were kind of weird, but the more I think about them, the more they apply to the position I applied for. They asked me about 7 questions about customer service and 3 easier personal questions first. Then the man thanked me and set up an interview for the next day (today, February 27th) at 2 pm. So I will provide more info after I do the interview!

Very Difficult Interview
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed 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 Question – 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.
Very Easy Interview
I applied in-person and the process took 6 days - interviewed at Applebee's in February 2010.
Interview Details – I filled out a generic application and within a few days received a call to come in for an interview. I went in and sat in a booth with one of the managers. We talked for a short period about my past waitressing experiences and my school schedule and then decided on a date when I could start. The interview took well under an hour and then I got a brief tour and a taste of the pizza.
Interview Question – I don't recall precisely but I do recall being asked questions that had nothing to do with waitressing and was caught off guard by them. Answer Question
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Applebee's in April 2012.
Interview Details – The interview was a two-part process. First, I met with a server manager who asked me questions about my schedule, what motivated me to apply at Applebee's and questions about my employment history. The questions seemed extremely easy to answer. I was told that there were a few more interviews for the day, and they would call back once they finished interviewing all applicants and determining the best fit. They called me back informing me they were interested in having a follow-up interview in which I met with the Store General Manager. This interview included more questions about my history, what interests me outside of work, and how do I feel about the company.
