    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Applebee's (Newark, DE) in March 2015.

    Interview

    There wasn't a actual interview at all. The whole process was very easy. I must have been lucky. I walked in and asked for a manager. Luckily no one was in the restaurant and the General manager was available. He asked me about myself, my prior cooking experience in a restaurant (which was zero) and ambitious in life and what I think Applebees could do to help. I was offered on the spot, not everyone's experience will be like mine
