    Host/Hostess Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Decatur, AL

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Applebee's (Decatur, AL) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online on a Monday and I got a callback the same day I applied, and the lady asked can I come in for an interview the next day at 1:30. So I arrived to the interview 15 minutes early, and the lady wasn't friendly at all, and she was rude. The questions were pretty basic.

    Interview

    I saw an advertisement on Craigslist about a new Applebee's being built in my city. The hyperlink in the ad directed me to the online application and personality questionnaire. Six days later I was called for an interview for the next day. I went to the interview where two managers and the owner were waiting for me. I was interviewed by the owner for a total of 5-7 minutes then was offered the job.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Applebee's (Omaha, NE).

    Interview

    I was interviewed by the assistant manager, and it was laid back in style. We talked about shared things we had in common for example. Anyway I was offered evenings, which unfortunately does not work for me personally. So I had to turn it down.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Applebee's in June 2016.

    Interview

    The interview at Applebee's was my first and insanely easy. I showed up 15 minutes early and waited for the manager to finish up with some restaurant duties. When he came to the table I was sitting at, he reviewed some details of my application, made some small talk, asked me a few questions, and told me to come in on the 21st for my first day! There's a number of paperwork that needs to be done prior, but in all, this interview was laid back, simple, and a relaxing experience.
