    I applied online. I interviewed at Applebee's (Midland, MI) in May 2017.

    The interview is a simple call in process. You're given a first interview where the hiring manager gives you simple teamwork questions. If they believe you could be a good employee, they tell you they'll call in the next couple of days for a second interview. On the second interview you receive more in-depth customer service questions. If they decide to move on with you after that they give a quick job description and go over hours, pay, and information of that sort.
