    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Applebee's (Cleburne, TX) in August 2016.

    Interview

    The process was short and sweet, I applied on 08/01/2016 (two weeks before they started hiring) and was called Saturday 08/20/2016 for an interview on Tuesday 08/23/2016. The interview itself lasted maybe three minutes. We talked about me, her son, and the job orientation. I originally applied as a hostess but she said I'd make more money as a server because of my personality. I accepted the job offer. It was very conversational, my interviewer was awesome.

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Applebee's (Rock Hill, SC).

    Interview

    Interview was filled with broken promises, a lot of false hope, and growth to bartender or better, The process was relaxed and comforting, offered me some thing to drink and do I eat at Applebee's often, what my favorite food's were. The manager that interviewed me was very pleasant. He didn't work there long; wish I would have worked with him more.
