    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Waffle House.

    Interview Details

    The interview was very straightforward, I met with the Region Manager and District Manager, discussing what I was interested in achieving and doing as a manager as well as my philosophies regarding work ethic and customer relationships. We discussed previous work and how it'd apply to the job, and spent a good amount of time going over exactly what the job would entail. Overall, it was a good experience!

    Salesperson/Waitress Interview

    Interview Details

    I went in and asked for an application on a Tuesday, before I even began filling out the tiny half-sheet of paper mini application the manager came to interview me. The only question she asked me was if I had any tattoos.

    The second interview was with the franchise owners that next Thursday. They asked me two questions, one being what size shirt I would need to begin training and orientation the following Monday.

    Mind you I had no experience as this was my first job.

    Unit Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Waffle House.

    Interview Details

    The Area People Director (APD) for our 28 store area interviewed me first in a local unit. It went well, and she did a majority of the talking as she explained the company and the position. I had to do a second interview with the division manager (manages 9 units); I later met the APD again to complete a personality test to see if I matched what they were looking for. In all, 3 interviews and about 3 or 4 weeks of waiting before being hired. Oh, you also have to do an "In-Unit" which consists of working in a unit on Fri, Sat, and Sun (just as you would as a manager) to "try it before you buy it". I thought that was a fantastic plan for prospective employees.

    Interview Questions
    • Not really any unexpected questions, just typical interview questions.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They asked what my current salary was at my place of employment, and I said. They made an offer above what I expected so I went with it.
