Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Richmond, VA
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Richmond, VA
Application Details

I interviewed through an employee referral. 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 Questions
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.)

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. 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.
