    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Wendy's.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process took longer than I required. In total I would say it was about a week and a half from when I applied to actually do anything on the job, and by "on the job," I mean training on the computer in the back. The interview was way easier than I thought it would be (though this was my first job ever). The questions were all read off cards that Wendy's provides their general managers. A lot of "Have you ever been in a situation where" questions. Just be prepared to explain a time that you had to accomplish a task quickly, times you had to deal with stressful situations, times you had to multitask, et cetera.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Wendy's in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    All the questions were really basic. Most of them on the first interview were very vague. Like "how did you handle criticism at school/work, and how did you react?". The second interview with the General Manger took about a week since he had to cancel due to lack of employes and he was needed in the back. But the first question on the second interview was funny. It was "What does your name mean and why did you get it?". The rest of the questions were directed on "what would you due in this situation, like if an employe was caught stealing, and what would you do if the general manager was caught in the act of fraud?". My advice would be to just make your interview fun for both of you. Make your interview a memorable one for them and you are more then likely going to get the job. And dress professional (slacks, skirt, dress shirt). You get major browny points for that

    Interview Questions
    • On the first interview about work related questions in situations, i was almost not able to answer them because i worked with one person at a previous job, and there was almost no conflicts.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Wendy's in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    It was very simple. I applied online and was asked to come in for an interview the next day for the following week through email. I went into the restaurant and sat down with my future manager and just discussed what I would do in certain situations such as handling upset customers. Being friendly is really what I think got me the job. I was told I could start the following week and that is when I would be getting my uniform.

    Interview Details

    Applied online over the weekend, got a call today to go in for an interview. It was simple with the general manager in the dining area off to the corner, she asked basic interview questions but basically just wanted to be sure I was drama-free because of some current employees she didn't like. Got the job offer right after the interview, I go in tomorrow to fill out the paperwork then start sometime this week!

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Wendy's in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I found the vacancy post in Craiglist. I completed the application and assessment online. After that, I also found out that I could send an email directly to the person who posted the vacancy in Craiglist so I emailed him, enclosing my resume there too. I got an email back in the next day telling the location, time and date for the interview. I went there 30 minutes earlier. The interview went faster than I thought, like in 5 minutes. He just asked question like Tell me about yourself? I answered and we just discussed more about it. Then he gave me a card and told me to go online to complete the assessment thing. When I finished it, the test result would go directly to him. I told him I already did it. And while I was waiting for the bus to go home after the interview, he called me telling that he got my result, it was good and I was hired. That was it.

Basic questions during interview. For example, name a time you showed courage. name a time you showed leadership abilities, etc. Rather simple and basic.
