    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at IHOP (Ocala, FL) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Arrived at my interview about 10 minutes early as I usually do. I was scheduled for a 2:30p.m. appointment with the dining room manager. The two servers that were on checked on me and relayed the message that I was there to the manager which I assumed would expedite the process. Still sitting there 20 minutes after my scheduled time she finally shuffles out to half- heartedly greet me. I'm directed to sit at a table while she joins me. No introduction still on her part, to this day I have no idea what this woman's name was. We review my employment history, but the only thing that she seems focused on is that I have recently moved from Massachusetts, I have 28 years of serving and managerial experience so I assumed we would have had plenty to talk about in the hospitality industry, not my former home state. The interview lasted about 10 minutes and I was informed that I might hear back by Wednesday of the following week. I did not have high hopes for hearing from them and was not disappointed. A week later I received a boiler plate email saying that they went with a more qualified candidate. Really? I'd love to meet him/her and we can wax poetic about out almost three decades in the service industry. Do not waste you time and effort with the Ocala FL locations of this chain.

    Interview

    I met with the hiring manager and she was very unprofessional. I kept getting the feeling that she was irritated that I was asking so many questions. She didn't seem to want to go into detail what I would need to be doing.

    Interview

    Interview went well. I was hired on the spot because I had serving experience. General questions were asked. The manager seemed pretty cool and laid back and had a passion for pancakes and her pancake partner affiliates. She absolutely adored pancakes. She told me that her first date with the man she decided to marry was at an IHOP. He proposed to her at an IHOP too.
