    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Nashville, TN
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Applebee's (Nashville, TN) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I waited about 20 minutes before I was told the person I was to see hadn't come. They phoned him and he had forgotten. I was then asked to drive to another location to meet him an hour and a half later. Again, he wasn't there. I waited almost 15 minutes...was about leave and he showed. He did apologize but then was on a conference call for about 20 minutes, then couldn't find my information...that took another 10 minutes. We finally interviewed, but I was left feeling like it was very unorganized and they weren't serious about hiring. I decided to let communication drop.

    Interview Questions

    • There was a scripted book. Every answer I gave was marked with a 3. Not sure what that meant, but I have experience and felt like the majority of my answers were quite good.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Applebee's (Derry, NH) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Normal multiple interviews
    3 before offer and had to call to follow up on job, should spend more time on working for a different company. Applebees is filled with senior management that lacks the ability to perform their daily tasks and or cant complete what is expected of them. Spend the time trying to get a job for a better company!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Applebee's (Richmond, VA) in May 2010.

    Interview

    Standardized HR questions. If they like you, they'll hire you. If they don't, they'll say you didn't do so great on the personality quiz, which by the way, has no wrong answers.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Pretty standard. It was my first restaurant manager position, so I took what they offered, which at the time was pretty standard between the big competitors (Chili's, TGIF, Ruby, etc.)

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Applebee's in January 2012.

    Interview

    Everything was normal for a management interview. The interview with the area manager was a little strange not really keeping focused about restaurant business and talking about personal interests and such.
