    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Applebee's (Omaha, NE).

    Interview

    I was interviewed by the assistant manager, and it was laid back in style. We talked about shared things we had in common for example. Anyway I was offered evenings, which unfortunately does not work for me personally. So I had to turn it down.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Applebee's (Waterloo, IA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I met with two separate managers on the same day. Both interviews were about 10 minutes each. You will talk to the General manager and the Manager of the host/servers or kitchen staff depending on what position you applied for. The restaurant is always busy so coming in early means you will only have to wait even longer for the manager to get to you. Business casual or professional leave a good impression.

    Interview Questions

    • "Do you have any previous experience working in a restaurant?"
      "What would you do to make a guest new to Applebee's feel welcomed?"
      "Explain a situation where you made a mistake. What did you do to fix it?"
      "Explain a situation where a customer was unhappy with their service."

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Applebee's (Cambridge, MN).

    Interview

    Easy, interviewed with two managers at separate times. They asked standard, basic interview questions. They were professional, and made sure to plan enough time to get through everything necessary. Plus, they give you free beverages during the interview. It was a pretty casual interview, low pressure. If you have a good attitude, they'd probably hire you. The main goal with that company is to have attractive, cheerful people working in the front of house.

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Applebee's in August 2015.

    Interview

    It is like your typical interview. I applied through snagajob, and they called me a week after. I had two separate interviews with the host manager and the general manager, and they were both very nice. After the second interview, they said that they will call me back within two days to let me know if I got the job or not and they did.

    The interview process was very informal and easy. I only had one in-person interview and the general manager just asked me to tell her a little about myself and then she asked me a few basic questions in order to get to know me better and find out if I'd be a good fit for the position.
