I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at IHOP in May 2014.

Interview Details – There was practically no interview, only questions about my availability. I applied online through a career website and was called later that afternoon.

Food Server Interview

Food Server
Sacramento, CA

I applied in-person and the process took 2 days - interviewed at IHOP in November 2013.

Interview Details – There were two interviews. The first one, I waited for 2 and 1/2 hours to be interviewed, and was only asked two questions with three managers in front of me. The second one was at the IHOP I would eventually work at, and waited for almost two hours. This time the interview was a "real" interview, going into who I ma and what I would contribute. The actual manager and the district manager conducted the interview.

Interview Question – The questions were simple in the first round. I was only really asked "Why should we hire you?" and "Do you have reliable transportation?". The second rounds went in-depth about "What do you want to do in the next few years?" and "How would IHOP help you do that?"   View Answer

Negotiation Details – No negotiation.
