    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Applebee's (Elk Grove, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was quick and easy. Pretty laid back. He mostly questioned about my availability and how long I was looking to work at Applebee's (for turnover rate purposes). He said that I seemed like a people-person and that he would refer my details to the front of house manager as well.

    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.

    Interview

    Really good experience. Waited awhile for the manager to come and talk to me. She was really nice and we ended up talking a lot. Didn't really get asked questions just more about availability and "tell me a little bit about yourself". I got hired right on the spot and I start orientation next week!!

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Applebee's (Kansas City, MO).

    Interview

    Laid back. Honest. Realistic. You fit or you don't so be yourself. Previous restaurant experience preferred in kitchen or front of house. If you weren't successful at serving or cooking, maybe it's not for you. Training is a big part of the job. Frequent analysis of business metrics is required. Be ready to talk about this.
