    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Applebee's (Kokomo, IN) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and got an email the next day to call to schedule an interview which I did. The first interview was really good I interviewed with the manager and he seemed really nice and laid back and was easy to talk to. Didn't get asked many questions just why I was applying and what my availability was, etc. He then scheduled a 2nd interview with the GM for the next day and that interview was very quick. I had to wait about 20 minutes for the interview to start and once it did it lasted about 3 minutes. The GM was very nice and he asked me the exact same questions the other manager did and said they'd call me the following Monday with their decision. Didn't get a call but got a rejection email the next day.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Applebee's (Palmdale, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    It was a group interview with 17 people which was very overwhelming considering it was my first group interview. It was extremely difficult for everyone to answer the same question without copying one another. However, the manager was very nice and it was clear no experience was needed for the job. They wanted everyone to feel welcomed and that they had a chance.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Applebee's (Evergreen Park, Cook, IL) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online got called back in about 3 days. Went in for an interview for 4:30 arrived at 4:15 didn't get interviewed until 5:00, VERY unprofessional! The interviewer began having a conversation with a employee that was on break right in the middle of our interview! They even began gossiping about another employee and how they didn't care for her. The interviewer began yawning and looking off out the window during our interview, very disconnected, and uninterested, she only asked me my availabilty and to 'tell me about yourself' in which i responded telling her about my work history and my hobbies, she then said, she wasn't getting a vibe off of me and couldn't "pull anything from me", I'm not sure what she wanted to know....complete waste of my time, worst interview experience ever!

    Interview

    Interview was very simple. I had a follow up the next day and the GM hired me right then and there. Each interview was under five minutes long. We just took a seat at random tables in the dining room when it was very slow. Food and drink was offered to m as well. It was the best interview experience I've had and I loved working for their company!!
