Server Interview

Application Details

I applied online – interviewed at Applebee's.

Interview Details

I applied online and got a call the next day to set up an interview. I had a one-on-one interview with the manager which was pretty informal. He sat down and said "talk to me." If this was my first interview, I might not have known what to say. But just explain why you are interested in working there, smile, and be confident. I was not asked any hard questions, just mainly about my background and availability. I was hired on the spot and told my orientation will be in a few days.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Applebee's in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    The management will make promises like "you will make a lot of money" but you are not given good shifts/sections until after 6 months of employment. When you are hired the training process is agonizing, if you can make it through it and the initial few months of little pay then you will have a steady income.

    Went in to the store to complete a store application. When I completed the application I requested to hand it to a manager.

    Interview Details

    Interview was the easiest! Managers are very laid back. They make you feel very comfortable from the first minute by joking all the time. The hardest part was personality test. If you dont 'strongly agree' to the questions, there is a possibility that they wont even see your application
