    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Applebee's (Alexandria, LA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I placed an interview and got a call from the GM. I went in that day to interview at 430pm. He said he would get with his other manager and call me back. The next day the other manager called me and asked if i'd like to come in for a 1st interview. I said I already did one. So he said ok come for 2nd interview. I had some specific scheduling needs, so when I told him what days I had to be off he sat for a couple of minutes real quiet and then said ok come start training tomorrow.

    Interview

    I applied in person after eating and turned it in to a manager who scheduled me for an interview a few days later. At that interview I got asked a few questions and filled out a personality test. At the end I was scheduled for a second interview with the general manager. The only bad thing was having to wait 50 minutes because they had something going on, but everyone was very nice, so it wasn't that big of a deal. At the end of the second Interview I was offered the job, and of course took it. Overall everyone was very nice to me and it wasn't a bad experience, during the interviews you just have to remember to be nice, smile, and be honest.

    Interview

    Pretty relaxed and easy going. Management just came out and talked to me about his car. I guess it was to see if I could continue a conversation with a total stranger. Overall it was a pretty easy and good experience.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview

    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.
