I have been working at Applebee's part-time (More than a year)
It is a great job to take part in if you are looking for something with a fast pace. The management isn’t always great, but at the Applebee’s I work at the management is amazing. They are very understanding when it comes to being late or calling in due to being sick, something comes up, etc. The servers are okay. The work place is very accepting. Very diverse as well.
There aren’t any cons, except maybe some servers acting like they run your hostess stand. If you are not as quick as them, you will be criticized and the main talk of the day. It’s best to be careful with this. $7.50 an hour is not enough to make a living, so this is super hard to work around sometimes.
Advice to Management
Try not to be so quick to assume the worst of one of your hardest workers.
I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Applebee's.
Very easy. It only consisted of simple questions regarding the food service industry. The manager was very polite and kind during the interview. It was very short and I was offered the job on the spot and I accepted.
