    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Applebee's in January 2017.

    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!!

    Restaurant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Kansas City, MO
    Accepted Offer
    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.
