    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Applebee's (Nashville, TN) in March 2016.

    Interview

    My interview process was expedited, so I was flexible with their request to meet my needs. Got a call on a Sunday morning to meet with an Area Director at a location an hour away. We went over the job requirements, condition and performance of the location I was applying for and my management style. That night I did an online evaluation. 4 days later, I met with the VP of operations. We went over basically the same but in deeper details. I left town for a week and was offered the job when I returned.

    Laid back. The person interviewing acted very uncomfortable. He read script never looked up at me. Seemed like he had something to get to. Acted like district manager was going come, then said he was on phone and he couldn't bother him. Never asked about if I had any knowledge of company. Had to repeat answers several times for him to write down.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a HR assistant after sending my resume through a job posting. She set me up with an interview at the corporate office. The interview went well and it was a very laid back general conversation about the business. She passed me along to the Area Director and I had an interview with him. It was a standard interview with all of the expected questions. The AD like ls me so I was passed on to the RJP, which stands for realistic job preview, a working interview of sorts.
