    Application Details

    I interviewed 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.

    I interviewed in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at Wendy's in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I went to a job fair. The manager of the local Wendy's was there. I was given a flyer to an on the spot interview as was everyone else. Several people were hired. Neat and organized. Basic questions during interview. For example, name a time you showed courage. name a time you showed leadership abilities, etc. Rather simple and basic. Be prepared with basic questions similar to the previously stated.

    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at Wendy's in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    First communication coming upon entry to restaurant and requesting application.
    Upon completion of application at restaurant, was spoken to on spot.
    An in person interview was conducting same day as application. Rather informal interview, especially considering entry level position.

    Interview Questions
    • Rather typical interview procedure. Simply inquiring about past experiences, mainly about schooling, since this was a first job.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Very little negotiation, considering this is a simple first job with minimum wage pay.

    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Wendy's.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed with one of the assistant manager, he asked me a bunch of scenario questions such as "has there been a time...", "have you ever.. and why...". He was supposed to write down my answers but he let me write it down myself which i would then tell him what i wrote afterwards. Got interviewed by the GM day after, he just asked things such as why do i want to work here, what hours i want, where i go to school, and where i live. Both interviews were very much like a conversation rather than a interview. I don't think all interviews at Wendy's are like this but i'm glad it did to me because i got the job right after. =)

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

    Interview Details

    I received phone/call and e-mail asking me to schedule an interview after I applied online. The manager seemed really eager to talk to me and I thought I would get hired relatively quickly, which didn't happen. Two interviews 3 weeks apart, one with manager and the other with two managers.

    I interviewed online. 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.
