    Interview Details

    Contacted me the day after I sent my application in online. Two days later I had a Cultural interview over the phone. They were primarily interested in why I wanted to work for Burger King and what I knew about the program. Later on in the week I had a second round interview over skype that focused more on my quantitative skill set.

    Management Trainee Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Burger King in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    On campus interview - 2:1

    The interviewer began speaking to me in French that threw me off. He was very aggressive in his interview style, used profanity at several points in the interview and rolled his eyes at my answers. He also interrupted me several times and criticized my opinions.

    Most of the questions were unrelated to the job. A mix of brain teasers and personal questions. These scare tactics are definitely not the way to attract good people. The program seems mediocre and lacks prestige in my opinion.

    Sales, Profit, and Operations Coach Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Burger King in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was very typical at first. Contacted by a recruiter and had a very typical interview (situational questions such as tell me about a time you had to change direction quickly, explain a typical day in your current role, what is your proudest achievement to date, why Burger King, why leaving current employer, etc.). Moved on to an interview with HR (more of the same questions). These were both phone interviews.

    The third virtual interview is where it got weird, and I realized the manager who interviewed me, the recruiter, and HR were not on the same page. I had great interviews with the recruiter and HR which were very positive, but the manager and I had the complete opposite experience. I realized from the moment I started speaking that I was counted out. While I have extensive management experience, it is in retail, and I do not have a restaurant background. He made his point very clear that he wanted someone with restaurant management experience from the start. He continually reiterated the point that I have not worked in a restaurant and therefore, I would require more training. He asked me maybe three questions which I answered well (similar answers I used with HR which was a great interview!) and only half paid attention to my answers appearing totally disinterested from the start. I left the interview feeling very disrespected since he didn't really pay attention to me and like my time had been wasted since I clearly was not going to be able to meet the criteria he was looking for based on my work experience. I am not sure why HR put me through to another interview if this is the case or even why I was contacted in the first place. Still think it would be a good job and a good place to work, but if you don't have restaurant experience, they may count you out before you even interview.

    Interview Questions
    • None of the questions were very challenging. Overall typical interview questions. Be prepared to speak to why Burger King, why you are leaving your current job, and what you feel you can bring to the table.   Answer Question

    Sales, Profit, and Operations Coach Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Burger King in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was first contacted by the sr. recruiter at BKC regarding the position for my area. I replied and a few days later she called, explained the position and we had a 25-30 minute interview after which she moved me onto a 2nd interview with the HR Manager the following week. The second interview was 23 mintues, again over the phone, with very easy questions and I was moved onto the third and final interview. However, before having the 3rd interview the Sr. Recruiter called me to let me know that this position required someone who was bilingual in Spanish. This information would have been nice to know before I spent two weeks preparing for the interviews and pausing my job search. The questions were easy but there seems to be a bit of a communication error between the various hiring managers.

    Leadership Development Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Miami, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Miami, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Burger King in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    You first are contacted by a recruiter and they schedule you for a 30 minute behavioral interview. It's all pretty straight forward. Definitely have an answer for the question why do you wanna work at Burger King?

    Then you have a 30 minute analytical interview. All the questions I listed below are what I was asked. It wasn't too bad.

    Then, if you are invited, you get flown out to their HQ in Miami. Apparently, they have about 7 "super days". Prior to arriving, they had us write a 1 minute speech about why they should hire you and why burger king. The night before you have a social outing where you just meet some of the full time employees and other candidates.

    Here is the SCHEDULE for the super day:

    8am-8:45am: talk about the day and learn about the company in a conference room with some of their employees. They're were about 30 of us in total. There were a lot of students from great schools including Cornell, Princeton, Northwestern, Illinois, Michigan, Duke, U of Chicago, Yale.

    9am-11am: business game. We were divided up into 6 teams and put into teams (Asia, Africa, N. America, S. America, Europe, Western Europe). We then had to "grow" the BK business and decide on things such as raising or decreasing the the price, increasing/decreasing the # of workers, and increasing/decreasing advertising/marketing. While you work in teams to figure out, two BK workers are there to evaluate you and see how your work in teams, etc.

    11:10am-12pm you have 5 speed interviews that are 10 minutes each with random BK employees. They are mostly behavioral.

    12-1pm is lunch.

    1-1:45pm is where you have an in depth interview of 30 minutes and then a 15 minute case interview with a different employee. The case question was "We are considering introducing a Southwest Chicken item on the value menu. How would you go about seeing if we should do this. I said stuff like a focus group in the beginning, then push it out to the corporate stores and compare with other stores in the region. Also do a survey, etc. I had never done a case before and it wasn't that bad.

    At 2pm they give you a tour of the office which is cool. We walked right by the CEO.

    At 2:30, the have the "Mid Interview Qualifier". Based on your performance through the day, they decide to either have you move on to the "EVP Crossfire" or not. If not, you are sent back to the airport in a shuttle bus from their HQ. The EVP Crossfire is where you give your 1 minute speech and the Executives also ask you some questions. I didn't make it to this part of the day.
