    It had an open house with many people at my local iHop so I didn't get a long thorough interview. It was a quick basic interview, lasted about 10 minutes.

Five days after my second interview, I was offered the position.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at IHOP.

    Interview

    Very quick and pretty informal. It depends on the manager that you interview with but you will meet one on one and fill out some employer forms. It is good to show that you are personable and can entertain and pay attention as a server. If hired, you need to start memorizing the IHOP menu and pass a test for that.

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at IHOP (Pflugerville, TX) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I was scheduled for an interview one day after applying. The interview was easy, Oscar mainly asked about scheduling, work experience and the like. After we spoke casually for a while, he scheduled another one a few days later to speak with the general manager. No drug test, no questions about why I chose not to let them speak with my previous employer.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at IHOP (Atlanta, GA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The manager took her own time. Barely any customers were there and it took an hour in order just to be greeted by the manager. The employee who first spoke to me was very rude and had many questions to ask as to why I was still there. I told him multiple times why. But anyway, after that dispute, the interview was short and one on one. Pretty simple.
