Manager Interview

Manager
Richmond, VA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Applebee's in May 2010.

Interview Details – Standardized HR questions. If they like you, they'll hire you. If they don't, they'll say you didn't do so great on the personality quiz, which by the way, has no wrong answers.

Interview Question – All pretty standard.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Pretty standard. It was my first restaurant manager position, so I took what they offered, which at the time was pretty standard between the big competitors (Chili's, TGIF, Ruby, etc.)

Manager Interview

Manager

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Applebee's in January 2012.

Interview Details – Everything was normal for a management interview. The interview with the area manager was a little strange not really keeping focused about restaurant business and talking about personal interests and such.

Interview Question – How long have you been a manager?   Answer Question
