    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Applebee's (McDonough, GA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    first interview was with two manager who asked basic questions, and were decently nice. as they reviewed my resume they concluded that i may be "over qualified" to be a server even though i had previous experience. so they told me to come back for a second interview with another manager who didn't even look at my resume and only care about my availability. the workers they are extremely unpleasant and i see why they didn't want me working there.

    Interview

    I placed an interview and got a call from the GM. I went in that day to interview at 430pm. He said he would get with his other manager and call me back. The next day the other manager called me and asked if i'd like to come in for a 1st interview. I said I already did one. So he said ok come for 2nd interview. I had some specific scheduling needs, so when I told him what days I had to be off he sat for a couple of minutes real quiet and then said ok come start training tomorrow.

    Interview

    Applied online for server, I called like everyday and got a call back in a month. You have to be persistent or you'll never get hired. Went in for an interview that week. The guy was boring, smiled once. Good thing im pretty bubbly. I was cool with it. Got a call back one week later for interview with store manager, he was informative. They will call previous employer. Got hired for hostess and will eventually be server. 15 mins top for both. No biggy.

I was very worried going into this interview but the interviewer was very nice. This was probably one of the most comfortable interviews I've been to. Good much if you have an interview coming up!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Applebee's (San Jose, CA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I went into the restruant and turned in my application. Someone then called me on the phone and we talked for about 30 minutes. The asked me about my background and how I dealt with stressful situations. How long I had been in the industry and why I was looking to leave my current job. I enjoyed the talk and am sad I didn't move forward. I guess I didn't have the background they were looking for. It was definitely not as bad as I was expecting. The reviews on here make it sound like it's an awful place to work. Maybe I dodged a bullit
