I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Applebee's (Howell, MI) in October 2016.

It was pretty straight forward they mostly were people who can work fast and or had experience. They do 3 interviews consisting of meeting the different managers with the final one being the GM who completes the hiring.

I made it clear I was looking for something good and was being somewhat picky in terms of what job I was going to accept and they started me off at 10.50 instead of 10.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Applebee's (Muncie, IN) in April 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was really weird. It was less of me being asked about myself, and more being told what I'd be doing on the job. It seemed great, since it seemed from the beginning I'd be getting hired. Considering they never got back to me after the second interview (after I called twice), it seemed very sketchy.

    Interview

    I was pretty much immediately hired. They have constant turnover, due to the terrible management, which leaves them desperate for employees. They hire anyone(no exaggeration) and provide mediocre training and follow up. good luck

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Applebee's (Newark, DE) in March 2015.

    Interview

    There wasn't a actual interview at all. The whole process was very easy. I must have been lucky. I walked in and asked for a manager. Luckily no one was in the restaurant and the General manager was available. He asked me about myself, my prior cooking experience in a restaurant (which was zero) and ambitious in life and what I think Applebees could do to help. I was offered on the spot, not everyone's experience will be like mine

    Very pleasant, and professional. Did not take me back to the kitchen but interviewed in a central location so I could see all around me. Since not working for so many years the Chef could under stand where I was coming from and was very interested. I'm waiting to get a call back..

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Applebee's (Conyers, GA) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Real simple. Sat me down at a table and asked me my schedule and work experience. Very basic interview. Understand interview guidelines and you will do just fine. Definitely good to have prior cooking experience and a flexible schedule. The general manager who hired me also always offered 50 cents less than you asked for (within minimum wage) so keep that in mind too. But don't ask to high because the salary cap there is $10.00/hr for cooks.
