Anonymous Interview Candidate in West Glacier, MT
Application Details

I applied in-person. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Applebee's in September 2011.

Interview Details

There were 3 interviews, the first being a phone interview. At the first interview they asked me general questions like how much experience I had and why did I apply for the job. The second interview was questions about my personality like "when was a time you had to solve a problem and how did you solve it." also "why do you think you will be successful at this job if we hire you"

Interview Questions
  • There weren't any difficult or unexpected questions, these were very general. He wrote a few things off to the side of my application as I was answering the questions.   Answer Question
Negotiation Details
they told me that after 6 months I would get a raise. There is a 6 month probationary period unlike the usual 3 month period for most restaurant work.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Applebee's.

    Interview Details

    I received a phone call for an interview, I showed up well dressed to find the manager in casual attire. This was fine with me, made me more comfortable, and there were a few generic questions. The way the questions were addressed, it was obvious that they already knew they were going to hire me before the interview.

    Negotiation Details
    There really wasn't a negotiation. Was told "this is how much you will get paid if you take the job" and that was it.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Applebee's in October 2008.

    Interview Details

    Came in for an interview during their slow hours, the manager was very apathetic about the process while interviewing me. There were very generic questions about my past work experience, and my availability. Ultimately, I believe he was content with hiring anyone that spoke English to work in the kitchen.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Applebee's in June 2008.

    Interview Details

    An Assistant Manager interviewed everyone who applied in one group. Then she separated us and had us take personality tests. Once I finished the test successfully I met the Store Manager. We talked for a few minutes, maybe 10, then I was offered the job. It was a friendly process, not at all intimidating. I was given a tour of the back of house (BOH) and met other management and supervisors.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    The hourly wage was basically predetermined at $7. I asked for $8 and we agreed on $7.50 to start. I received multiple (though low) raises while employed there.
