    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Applebee's (Detroit, MI) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online through Indeed.com and received a call from the GM the next day and we setup an interview. The GM was quite thorough explaining Applebee's rules and processes. We discussed work hours and the GM explained the current situation in the kitchen - ie: turn-around and attitudes. The application indicates Applebee's 'may' do a background check or drug testing but they did neither.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked about my previous experience. Asked what my overall intentions such as how many hours could I handle and how long did I plan to work there since this is a second job for me.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Applebee's (Spring Hill, TN) in January 2014.

    Interview

    I was told that I'm hired since they are desperate for a cook. At the same time, the manager told me to go buy a pair of non-slip shoes and a pair of black jeans. I spent about $35 and the day for the interview with the GM, he told me that my application was denied due to the personally test. Say what? The reason was that the test showed I can't work well under pressure. Really? If owning my own business in construction and dealing with over 25 guys at one time or another isn't pressure enough, I don't know what it is. This test is such a scam, designed only to trip you up. Another form of discrimination where companies use computers to funnel you further into unemployment and welfare status

    Interview Questions

    • Verbal interview went well, but GM can't hire anyone until computer program says so.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Applebee's in August 2011.

    Interview

    After I applied i called 5 days later between 2-5p.m. (standard down time for restaurants), I asked for the manager which was busy at the time so I asked to leave a message( my name, phone#, nature of phone call ( checking the status of my application). The manager called me back , we set up an interview( if possible always agree to the time they propose) the first interview went well. Its a 1:1 interview basic questions( what is your job history, describe your previous jobs and work experience, why should we hire you). If your first interview goes good you will take personality and skills test that same day. Then set up 2nd interview. Lastly, 2nd./ 3rd. interview sometimes there is a 3rd interview, usually when the management is really trying hard to decide between a couple good applicants. The last interview is with 2 managers, typically back off house manager for cooks/ front of house manager for( servers and host(s) ) and the store manager./ general manager. If that interview goes well , congrats your hired.

    Not that much room to negotiate, although it depends on your experience. At most you can negotiate a dollar above minimum wage as your starting wage.
