    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sacramento, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Applebee's (Sacramento, CA) in December 2017.

    Interview

    This was a terrible experience, and I cannot believe sites like these allow them to use their platform. I was filled out application. I did their assessment which took quite a while. I then did an interview with their head hunter,, and then told that someone would reach out to me. If I didn’t hear back by Tuesday please let her know. I did so as instructed, and then I got an email. Which states that just bc they post a job opening on the site doesn’t necessarily mean they have job openings. They wil not be able to move forward with the process. I find this totally rude and inconsiderate of my time. Who does this?

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Applebee's (Federal Way, WA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I interviewed with both the front of the house manager and back of the house manager who were both available the same day in order to determine which section I would be best fit. It was a lot of questions revolving around my personality, hobbies, and work ethic in order to get an understanding of the type of person I was. Both managers were fantastic and I would have felt comfortable working under either one.

    Interview

    She’d been screaming, calling out. He’d no way of knowing how long. Maybe all day. She’d stopped when the front door slammed shut behind him.

    The house was silent now. He stood and listened, as if for signs someone had heard.

    Satisfied they hadn’t, he headed down into the cellar.
