    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Applebee's.

    Interview

    I arrived 10 min early and was kept waiting until 10 min after scheduled interview start time.
    Once again I applied for the stated opening of BARTENDER. Once again, I was told they promote bartenders from within after starting as a server. Why do companies do this? Stop advertising for a bartender when you will only hire servers.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about yourself. That is when I stated I have years of bartending experience and was told have to be a server first.   1 Answer

    Server Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Applebee's in June 2019.

    Interview

    Before I went in for the interview, I researched on Glassdoor for possible questions so I would be prepared. Because I did this, nothing caught me off guard and I was able to have a well put together answer for everything. It was very relaxed (he literally sat me down at a table in the middle of the restaurant and the other servers were making conversation with me while I waited). There were supposed to be two parts, but if you do well enough with the first one, that should be enough. Probably took about 20 minutes or so, they're looking more at your appearance and personality than anything else, so just form coherent answers with a smile on your face and you should be fine.
