    I applied online – interviewed at Applebee's in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    It was really easy. I applied and then a week later I called and got an interview. Everything went well and then I got a second interview and then they offered me a job. The employer was really nice and friendly and easy to talk to. I didn't feel nervous once I started talking to them.

    Food Server Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Applebee's.

    Interview Details

    Very relaxing interview, it is required that you have previous experience in the hospitality industry before coming in to interview. Since I had already worked in the industry I was able to talk about how many tables I could handle and how much sales expected to have on any given night. I was asked what I thought every server needed to do to be successful. That is a pretty common question. 9 out of 10 managers want you to say something like a good attitude or a nice smile.

    Interview Questions
    • Most difficult question is: where do you see yourself in ten years? It's difficult because even the manager knows you won't be with them, yet you feel obligated to say you will be there.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Applebee's in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online with snagajob.com and a week later I got an email about an open interview at 3pm the following Tuesday. When I got there there were about 9 of us interviewing. 8 of us had been sent the email but the 9th person had walked in to turn in her application and just got put with us to be interviewed. We started off with the manager telling us the basics of working at Applebee's but nothing specific about each position. After that we got called to talk to him individually across the restaurant. I arrived at 2:50 and didn't get interviewed until 3:30ish and I was the second interview. The questions were really straightforward like tell me about yourself and what's your availability nothing difficult at all. I'd say we talked about 10 minutes tops and then he outright told me I'd be a good fit and offered me a job. (I was applying for a summer position)

    Server At Applebees Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in North Las Vegas, NV
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in North Las Vegas, NV
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Applebee's in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Waste of time. First interview was with the kitchen manager. That's when I was told I would have an interview with the restaurant manager, the GM, do an online assessment, and then another "interview" where I would come in dressed in all black (like an employee) and show them what I've got. This is APPLEBEE'S for crying out loud, not some high end restaurant. At this point, I'm waiting to be called back for the final "interview". It's so over the top, I feel like my time and gas was wasted. I have serving experience and a great personality. I feel like I'm jumping through hoops for no reason.

    Talked to the general manager at a table in the restaurant, asked about my personal information, where i am going to school and why i wanted to be a server at Applebee's. When he knew that I had worked as a server before he decided to hired me as a server instead of a host for other unexperienced applicants.

    Was lied to about many things. The most egregious was that I would make up to $100.00 per night in tips. I never made more than $20 or $30 bucks per 8 hour shift.

    Interview Details

    The interview was very simple. Now it is all online, but I was hired when they were still doing paper applications. It was a generic application, and when i went in for the interview they asked about previous experiences, why i left my other job, and my availability. I didn't get hired for my requested position, but I did make it there eventually.
