    Assistant Restaurant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Surprise, AZ
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Applebee's (Surprise, AZ) in February 2015.

    Interview

    A call from HR to set up a 30 minute phone interview the following day. Phone interview only lasted 15 minutes. Very simple questions. Received a call the following day to set up a interview with the area director. Met at one of their restaurants with the ADO for the interview that lasted for about two hours and then an hour shadowing the GM. Very simple, easy interview process
