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.

    Interview

    Applied online to two separate locations. One location contacted me over the phone. Once I responded, the manager explained that server hours were limited at the moment. The manager then proceeded to provide the job description of a host/hostess.

    Application

    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.

    I got an interview after walking into the restaurant. Filled out an application and handed it to the store manager.

Just basically got asked my experience and what position I was applying for. Very easy.
