Application Details

I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at IHOP.

Interview Details

I got an interview after walking into the restaurant. Filled out an application and handed it to the store manager. Didn't recieve a call so I called the restaurant and asked them what was the status of my application. They set up an interview for that same day. Just basically got asked my experience and what position I was applying for. Very easy.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed 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. The manager asked me to come in one evening and all she did was photocopy my drivers license and social security and told me when i started training.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at IHOP.

    Interview Details

    Very short interview process with both the Store manager and the assistant store manager at the same time. They weren't very attentive (cell phones on and ringing and actually answering it during the interview). It seemed like they were just going through the motions.

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at IHOP.

    Interview Details

    Walked in for application, was met by employee who was working the register and refused to give an application. I waited and caught a manager walking by who brought me an application happily, I asked I i could take a seat to fill out the application immediately he said yes please do. I filled it out and turned it back into him. He immediately asked me to come back in a few days later for an interview, I was then offered the job at the time of the interview.

    Negotiation Details
    I asked for a quarter over my local min wage for a serving position and I received that, each time I returned, however the second time i went back to work for the company the min wage had dropped by $1 so I was being paid less then I initially was. This was discussed with me i was told they were only allowed to pay a certain amount over min-wage for the position.
