Host Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bell Gardens, CA
No Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied in-person. I interviewed at Applebee's (Bell Gardens, CA) in August 2017.

Interview

Management is so unprofessional, I had 4 interviews AND THEY COULDN'T TELL ME YES OR NO. After my 4th interview they told me to call Tuesday. When I called one of the managers answered the phone to tell me they weren't hiring and hung up on me while being rude. This is not the best way to tell a candidate that they arent fit for the postition insterad of being lied to. I went on indeed and saw that they were hiring. Managment needs to be retrained to be more polite and compationate tworard others and more professional. If they treat CANDIDATES like that i can just imagine the customers.

    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.

    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.

    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.
