I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Wendy's.

Interview Details – If you want to get hired at Wendy's or any fast food really here is what you do.

1. Do not turn in an application between 11-2, 5-7 or if it is extremely busy. Those are rush periods and it looks bad. Also don't get an application in the drive thru, that's just lazy.

2. When you turn in your application be wearing clean clothes and comb your hair. If you're a guy i'd suggest shaving or at least shaving before the actual interview. You're not allowed to have a beard and they want a "clean cut" appearance. I know some managers that won't hire you just based on that.

3, Ask for the hiring manager when turning in the app and shake their hand. Follow up 3-5 days later in person or on the phone. Trust me, persistence pays off

4. They will ask questions such as; why do you want to work at blank ____? How would you handle an angry customer? Do you have any experience? What shifts are you available to work? What are you're future goals/ambitions?

5. If you have experience in food service elaborate on all the awesome things you did there. Like making food, being helpful to customers, taking the initiative to get things done. If you don't have food experience, tell them how you love working hard, learning and teaching new things, are able to adapt to any situation and stay cool in stressful situations.

Negotiation Details – There is no negotiating on pay. I was able to get sunday's off for the period of time i worked there because I said I wouldn't work them due to the bus schedule.

Crew Member Interview

Crew Member
Ann Arbor, MI

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Wendy's in December 2013.

Interview Details – I filled out an application on Snagajob.com, and I received a call from the manager within hours of filling it out. We set up a interview for 2 days later. I arrived to the interview early. I finally met the manager who was interviewing me. The interview lasted about 10-15 minutes. She told me she'd call me back the next day. I didn't hear from her. I was worried, called the establishment back only to find out she left. Bummer. I called the next day, she was busy and said to call back two days later. Frustrated, I didn't call back. Three days I was thinking to myself my interview must've been bad, and I wasn't offered the job. Ten minutes later she calls saying I was offered the job. :) I was very excited and had orientation the next day. My advice is be yourself in the interview. I have no experience im fast food, this is my first job. I love the environment so far. The workers seem friendly.

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. I was fine with minimum wage. :)
