I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Wendy's in February 2014.

Crew Member Interview

Crew Member
Mesa, AZ

I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Wendy's in March 2014.

Interview Details – The process took 4 days. I applied online on Monday and got an e-mail & call on Thursday asking to set up an interview. I was interviewed the next day (Friday) at 3:45. I arrived a little before 3:40 and didn't talk to anyone until 4:10. I ended up just talking to the SM because the GM was swamped with customers by the end of the interview (4:30) I wasn't very hopeful because she said they were looking for someone who could work late on weekdays, as in 2-2:30 am. As I am a high school student, that wasn't possible for me. I got a call 2 days later offering me the job but I turned it down because I was offered a position at Olive Garden while waiting to hear back from Wendy's.

Interview Question – Describe a time you were working in a team and someone wasn't cooperating?
Do you work well in a team?
What hours are you willing to work?
What are your goals after high school/future plans?

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Wendy's in March 2010.

Interview Details – Went to turn in an application, and they did an on the spot interview and hire. Questions were asked that were very general and basic-nothing challenging, no thought provoking questions or anything like that.
